Welcome to The Spicy Spatula!

This site has been a long time coming. I originally started The Spicy Spatula in 2011 and I fell in love with blogging and sharing my food with others. Later that year, I started working full-time and going to school full-time, so blogging had to take a backseat until I could devote more time to it. This meant waiting until I was finished with school, and now that I’m done, here I am!

I come from a family of really talented home cooks. My mom makes the BEST marinara sauce in the freaking world. In fact, last year for my birthday I asked for a truck load of it because it’s so good.

My cooking style is heavily influenced by my Italian roots. Basil and Parmesan? I’m there… And I’m bringing garlic bread.

I LOVE cooking for people. Seeing the happiness on their faces when they take a bite of something I’ve made for them is just about the best thing ever.

I married my best friend on September 1, 2013. He is also my chief IT guy and is the reason this blog looks so great! Thanks Mike!

The Spicy Spatula is geared towards sharing my recipes, time, money saving strategies and most importantly, getting people back in the kitchen!
