Hi, and welcome! I’m so excited you’re here. I launched The Yummoty in 2013 because in a flurry of anxiety I realized I didn’t know how to cook, anything! I had just gotten married (and was over 30!), and the idea of cooking for one, let alone two, was terrifying. Even chopping an onion seemed overwhelming. With the help of my Mom I started documenting my journey to learn how to cook, and in the process conquered the kitchen. I realized that cooking can be so much easier and more fun than I ever imagined. If I can do it, you can do it!
