  • Erin grew up surrounded by grandmothers who loved to cook and loved to share their secrets with others, and has been stirring batter since she was old enough to hold a spoon.
  • She believes that appliance cooking is undervalued, and that everyone can elevate their cooking game by adding a slow cooker and air fryer into their kitchen.
  • Erin believes that all food tastes better in egg roll form and has an extensive list of favorite novelty egg roll recipes, most notably the poke bowl egg roll.


Erin has been writing about food and creating recipes online for the last 15 years. She loves to create recipes that make cooking less intimidating for beginner home cooks and that show that "easy" doesn't have to mean "boring" or "bland." Erin specializes in updating classic comfort food recipes (especially Southern) for modern palates and preferences.
