About Me

Hello! My name is Marie and I’m the cook, baker, writer, recipe developer, and food photographer for Yay! For Food.

I share easy sweet and savoury recipes, usually with minimal and inexpensive ingredients.

You’ll find that the majority of my recipes are 10 ingredients or less, 30 minutes or less, and/or one-pot (pan, sheet, bowl). 

My cooking philosophy is to create simple, accessible, low-maintenance meals using fresh, seasonal ingredients that are big on flavour and (mostly) healthy. A few not-so-healthy desserts sneak in too.

After all, I’m a big fan of dessert for breakfast, eating peanut butter straight out the jar, devouring all the cheese, and drinking lots of coffee.

I live in beautiful Alberta, Canada with my wonderful husband, Scott, and our dog (aka “The Boss”), Teddy. Check out his Instagram!

When I am not making a mess in the kitchen, you can find me at the dog park, checking out local events and attractions, and when I’m lucky, travelling and eating all types of tasty foods.
