Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
I’m Michael Olsen and I love to make people happy with the foods I serve. I try to make everything I cook from scratch and my motto is, “nothing out of the box and nothing out of the can.” Sometimes that’s not always possible but that’s what I strive for.
My love of cooking started when I was in grade school. Let’s face it, my mom God rest her soul was an imaginative cook but could never really make it come together. She could, however, whip up some killer pies. Because she didn’t want to cook, my sister, brother, and I can all throw-down some eats. My sister is a gourmet and my brother can make a delicious meal out of a shoe-box.
My food idols are Ree Drummond, Laura Vitale, Helen Chen and undeniably my sister Diane. To me they are all Goddesses. They’re my “go to” girls when I want to learn something new or get fantastic recipe ideas.
I look forward to sharing my recipes with you and hope you will share some of yours with me too.
