My name is Blakely and I am the creator/ head taste tester of this fabulous website. I started Everyday Gourmet with Blakely one day for fun while I was in culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu as a way to share all my favorite recipes with my friends and family back home. It started out as a hobby but now it has become my passion! I love fresh, homemade food that takes all day and a lot of love to prepare. I know, I know you don’t have “time” to do that. No worries! Whether you are an experienced Chef or just a begginer foodie there’s a$recipe on here with step by step directions and a video on how to do it that will definitely please everyone. I really hope this website inspires you to get creative and make some amazing meals for your oved ones, or just yourself! Please feel free to comment and if you have an questions or would like to summit a recipe feel free to email me at CookingForBimbos [at]gmail [dot] com. Thanks for stopping by! Happy eating!

Lemon & Blueberry Layer Cake

This cake to me just screams Spring! The freshness of the lemon and blueberry with the creaminess of the cream cheese just makes me so happy. This cake might look intimidating but it's really SO easy. Anyone can do it. Plus it looks pretty when you cut into it! Ok, let's get started....

Southwestern Style Spaghetti Squash Bowl

Who said eating healthy has to be boring? Not me! I find that if you add lots of great spices and herbs you can take something that would be boring and make it delicious and exciting. I love spaghetti squash because it is so easy to bake and I like to do it ahead of time so when it's time to make this recipe I just have to add it to the sauteed veggies and it's ready in no time!...

Banana Honey Walnut Overnight Oats*

Ever want to eat healthy in the morning and then wake up in the morning and say forget it and just grab something quick? Let's be honest... we've all been there.

Citrus Upside Down Cake*

I love a good upside down cake, no matter what kind of fruit you use. My family always uses pineapple but when I saw how beautiful all of the citrus looked at the grocery store I decided to play with the ingredients! The result was delicious. The cake is so flavorful because of all the fresh citrus zest that you put into the batter. Make sure you don’t skip this step! Ok, let’s get cooking. First thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 3...
