About Me

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Melissa and I'm the girl that keeps the Canister filled to the brim with great recipes.

I am a 27 year old, native to New Jersey. While I have lived all over this great state, my husband and I have recently moved back to our hometown in the suburbs of Philadelphia (on the Jersey side). We currently do not have any children, but we do have two cats that we simply adore, Caesar and Cleo.

I update this blog in my spare time. When I'm not cooking, I am working at my full time job as a tax accountant. I graduated in 2004 with a BS in Accounting and just finished the last class towards my Masters in Tax in January 2010.

Outside of cooking, my interests include reading, running and photography. As you can tell from my blog, my photography has improved a lot over the last two years. Now that I am done school, I'd like to take a class on photography and learn all the ins and outs.

I love hearing about other people's adventures in the kitchen just as much as I love having them myself. Please feel free to leave a comment on any of my posts.
