I’m Melissa – runner, big sister, morning person. I’m 25 and I live in beautiful West Philadelphia with my boyfriend fiancé, Curtis.

I’m happiest when I’m in the kitchen. My food philosophy is simple – familiar, nutritious, delicious. I get a lot of inspiration from international cookbooks and old family recipes.

I’ve lost 70 pounds since September, 2011. I eat lots of whole foods and enjoy experimenting with raw cuisine, but I don’t love limiting myself to labels.

I dream about a vegan cafe someday, or a bed-and-breakfast in a tiny seaside Costa Rican town. For now though, I’m pretty content cooking for my loved ones in my sunny, eat-in kitchen.
