Hi! I’m Nicole. Welcome to The Home Cookbook. 😊

I’m a self-taught home cook and I started The Home Cookbook as a place to keep track of my recipes in a sort of online, personal cookbook. The recipes here are ones that I love and serve in my home. I love to be creative in the kitchen and try to cook from scratch as much as possible.

I live in the East SF Bay Area with my husband and four kids and try to focus on cooking simple recipes suitable for my large family. We love to host our family and friends in our home as well, so I have a lot of opportunities to cook and bake for a crowd.

Some of my favorite foods are: chocolate, cheese, and steak. So don’t be shocked if you see them in nearly every recipe. 😉

Making food that is both delicious and accessible is important to me. I like to keep a well-stocked kitchen and use what I have on hand so I aim to stay away from using ingredients that are hard to find.

Ultimately, the goal is to create amazing food and share it with people I love.

I hope you find something useful or inspiring here. I’d love to hear if you try one of my recipes!
