I’m Allie, founder of In The Kitchen With Me website and online community. As a wife, mother of two home schooled kids, small business owner and entrepreneur, I’m busy!! Needless to say, my time cooking in the kitchen has to be streamlined. But crappy frozen or microwaved meals is not an option for me. (I actually don’t even have a microwave!!) Eating healthy, homemade meals is a number one priority!
I created this website as a way to help others like me actually want to be in the kitchen without dreading it, like we all have one time or another…or at least feel a little more confident and comfortable in the kitchen!!
Well it may sound strange but, I didn’t always like to cook…
I never spent much time in the kitchen until I was married. (And my husband certainly didn’t either…) He’s a contractor so… since he gets to fix literally everything around the house (I’m so lucky!), I am queen of the kitchen!
I will never forget a really embarrassing moment in the kitchen.
I was making pasta, the most basic starter meal right? How can anyone mess up cooking noodles?? I did!! My husband was running late and I had the noodles boiling and when they were finished, I just left them in the water without straining them in the colander. I mean I wanted my meal to be hot!! Well he came home and I served up spaghetti and the noodles were so mushy I might as well have blended everything up… Yep it was that bad! And it was even worse when I learned that my husband actually knew how to cook noodles.
So from then on, I have taught myself through lots of reading and lots of trial and error how to survive In The Kitchen.
And now I can actually say not only do I really enjoy it but I’m pretty darn good too!!
My goal for In The Kitchen With Me is to help you feel comfortable and successful in your kitchen by:
- helping you learn the basics of cooking
- creating a user-friendly kitchen
- choosing the right kitchen gadgets
- saving you the time of searching the internet for recipes and cooking tips
- learn how to bake simple desserts
- cook healthy and homemade
I’m looking forward to sharing with you!

Haha, that’s a fun read. I also used to know nothing about cooking. My wife taught me how to cook and I’m pretty good at it too, though I admit I own a microwave…! God bless
That’s great! I hope you enjoy it.
Can’t wait to keep reading!!! This looks perfect for me!
Great! I know you will find some helpful information. Welcome to your journey!
I love that you are doing this! I am always looking for healthy options for a quick meal! It’s way too easy to get stuck in a rut, and now my youngest son likes to pretend that he is Gordon Ramsey; and he is a tough one to please! Thankfully he takes the reins as well, so maybe I will have him check out your blog also to come up with some tasty meals!
You’re welcome! I’m glad you find our website helpful. That’s a great idea for your son to check out some posts and let him cook for you! It’s great to get the kids in the kitchen at an early age.
