I am Krystle, the foodie behind the One Sweet Cookie blog. Created as a way to share my passion of food with family and friends. I believe in cooking with fresh ingredients and that making food from scratch is the tastier way to go!
Cooking is my happy place. I can spend hours finding new recipes try and exploring new cooking techniques . I get a lot of my inspiration from cookbooks, family recipes, magazines, fellow food bloggers, The Food Network, and Pinterest. I find it so rewarding to take a recipe and taste the finished plate.
Although I have never been professionally trained in the culinary world and have had my fare share of kitchen disasters.. (I still have the smoke alarms cheering me on from time to time) I have gained a lot of my experience through trial and error.
I grew up helping my mom in the kitchen. My mom is a foodie too, she loves to entertain and cook for guests. My favorite recipe that we cooked or rather baked together would be chocolate chip cookies. I remember every Sunday we would have a special family dinner together with my dad, older sister and brother. My favourite Sunday dinner, would be roast beef, with yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, and garlic green beans with toasted slivered almonds
