Meet your instructor...

I’ve finished my Professional Cooking Fundamentals coursework in Sur La Table Culinary Institute. I’ve been featured on many websites, magazines, and brands throughout the last 12 years. Some included Better Homes and Gardens, Woman’s Day, Cottages and Bungalows, Country Living, Reader’s Digest, and many more. I was also a Stillwater Gazette Columnist for 1.5 years, have spoken at multiple conferences, hosted local events, taught classes for Pinners Conference, and much much more…

I believe that it’s time to reconnect with meals that are simple and satisfying, getting back to the process of creating meals that we enjoy. This doesn’t require a chef, Pinterest-worthy meals, or even hours of time. Food should feed our bellies and our souls. You don’t have to be a chef or have a silver spoon to accomplish that.

The best part…ANYONE can learn to cook delicious meals. 

Our Mission

In our company, we aim to make home cooks happy by providing them with the best resources and community, regardless of their experience or budget. 

We believe that home cooks of all levels and budgets should feel confident and supported in their cooking journey.

No way! We believe that home cooks of all levels should feel confident and supported in their cooking journey.” — that includes you!

I think our Short-Cut Cooking recipes are the perfect place for you to start looking for new recipes. And don’t miss the Learn to Cook section as the perfect starting place for learning new skills!

A large mixing bowl, whisk, chef’s knife, baking sheet, and skillet should get you started on most recipes. As you do more cooking & baking you’ll find yourself building on the basic supplies you need to. In fact, check out my essential supplies list for a tiny kitchen. This list was created when we were renting and I had to condense my supplies down a TON. This list will give you a great place to start as well as tell you how you can multi-purpose several tools, if needed.

To learn more about the tools and supplies I keep on hand in my own current kitchen, check out what’s In the NellieBellie Cupboard for links and info.

You’ll want to keep some basic baking and cooking ingredients on hand. Flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, oil, salt, pepper, bouillon, pasta or rice, and canned beans are some items most people find useful. As you start using recipes you’ll learn more of what ingredients would be helpful to keep in your pantry.

If you want to learn more now, check out what I keep stocked In the NellieBellie Cupboard.
