ABOUT ME

welcome to

nook & spice

My name is Andrea and there are 2 things that matter to me most: cooking yummy foods & being with the people I love! Having traveled to over 30 countries and enjoying every cuisine I've ever tried, and being willing to fail in the kitchen, it has led me to develop skills that I want to share with others!

As Remy from the Disney movie 'Ratatouille' would say, "Anyone can cook!"

Here at the NOOK & SPICE Blog, we're more than a food blog...

We're a community, a source of inspiration, and a companion in your family's growth.

Browse, read, cook, and grow with us.

Let's create delicious memories together.
