About Blakelyadmin

Blakely-Trettenero (2)Hi everyone!
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!
