Hey there! My name is Nicole Beaulieu; I’m the messy home cook behind this blog. Mess in the Kitchen came to fruition in 2018 because of my good friend and mentor, Joanna Cismaru over at JoCooks. I began working with her in August 2017 as her assistant, and quickly fell in love with wonderful world of food blogging. I had always been passionate about cooking, but I always left it on the back-burner (ha ha). Through Joanna’s, and her husband Remo’s, encouragement I decided to start my own recipe blog. We make (in our humble opinions) the best food out there, and I’m happy to share my recipes with all of you!
WHAT IS MY BLOG ABOUT?
Cooking has always been my passion. As a kid, I would sit glued in front of the Food Network taking notes on all the recipes that I liked. Later, I would pass the notes onto my parents, and if I was lucky enough, they would buy all the ingredients I needed to cook with. I would experiment with these recipes, make a gigantic mess in the process, and have so much fun in the process.
Over the years I’ve continued to learn as much as I can about cooking. I know that a good meal can be made out of any combination of ingredients in your cupboard! I like to keep my recipes simple and full of great flavour.
What kind of recipes will you find here? Well, a little bit of everything. I love food of all types! As a very busy student, I like to keep my recipes quick and affordable. You’ll also find posts here about travels around my beautiful province of Alberta, Canada, and other places I happen to find myself.
When I’m not busy cooking up a storm, I spend time with my lovely pup Kobe. He’s a wonderfully sweet Heinz 57 Mutt, and my #1 fan. His favourite pastimes include going to the dog park, squeaky toys, and cleaning up food that spills while I’m cooking.
I’m so glad you stopped by Mess in the Kitchen, and hope you’ll continue to come back and hang out!
