My name is Melody and I am the cook and blogger behind Meals With Mel. I’ve always had a bad habit of obsessively talking about my love of food and cooking, and in April 2014, thanks to the advice of a friend, I started Meals With Mel and began my mostly spicy adventure in my Texas kitchen.
My philosophy in the kitchen has always been to add a bit of this, a dash of that, a splash of something doesn’t hurt, never forget some type of pepper,
and always add at least one clove of garlic.
Unless you are making Chicken With Forty Cloves of Garlic then you MUST add 40 cloves of garlic 🙂
I was born and raised in a small town just west of Ft.Worth, Texas and I’ve lived in the same county my whole life… What can I say, “There’s no place like home”.
I love to travel and I’m always planning my next adventure. My favorite place I’ve been is Southern France.
I enjoy spending time in my little garden full of kitchen herbs, peppers, tomatoes, blackberry bushes, and every year I grow enough basil to feed a large city.
I have a Cat named Jax who is rarely found upright…
Even though I’m not a breakfast person if I had to choose one last meals it would be Southern Buttermilk Biscuits Smothered in Spicy Sausage Gravy. I don’t make it often but when I do I enjoy EVERY bite.
I know this will come as a shock but my favorite food to eat is Mexican Food…
Choosing between Enchiladas and Tacos is almost impossible.
Although Mexican food is my favorite to eat my favorite food to make is Italian Food….
For dessert, I will always choose pie especially my Grandmother Coconut Cream Pie.
Most of all I’m seriously a passion about cooking good food from scratch.
These past two years have truly been an adventure and I’m looking forward for all the new things to come.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my Texas kitchen!!!
