Hello and welcome! I’m Riley, a culinary student, news junkie, relapsing Diet Coke addict, and lover of all things food. I’m the one doing the cooking, writing, and photography here at My Daily Morsel.
I recently moved to New York City to attend culinary school at The International Culinary Center. Check out that sweet picture above. This is what I look like when I decide to stop wearing makeup (because I sweat it all off anyway) and stop putting in my contacts (because I’m lazy.)
I watch way too much television. Some of my favorite shows include The Walking Dead, The Mindy Project, and Sherlock. And we can’t forget some of the oldies but goodies – Will & Grace, Gilmore Girls, and The O.C. in particular.
Speaking of TV, I love the news. Being twenty-two years old, I probably shouldn’t be able to name every anchor and stand-in anchor on CNN, but so is my life. I have a major crush on Jake Tapper, I want to be Wolf Blitzer’s best friend, I envy Erin Burnett’s hair, and I want to be Anderson Copper’s personal chef.
This is Lila, the love of my life and taste tester extraordinaire. Her hobbies include short walks, giving eskimo kisses, barking at the wind, and forgetting to put her tongue back in her mouth.
My favorite movie is Primal Fear. My second favorite is a tie between Mamma Mia and The Silence of the Lambs. Deal with that on your own time.
I hate eggplant, wind chimes, and mornings.
If I wasn’t going to cook for a living, I think I would be a storm chaser. Or a professional bed tester.
I sing in the shower. A lot. I basically turn into Adele in there, but with more hazardous dance moves.
If you ever attempt to prank me using an insect (real or fake, dead or alive) as a prop, I will immediately cut any and all ties with you. I’m as serious as the black eye you’ll be tending to if you try to pull a stunt like that. I have brass knuckles and pepper spray and I’m not afraid to use them.
I love a man who knows the difference between “your” and “you’re.” That’s hot.
The goal of this blog is to provide you with tried and true recipes that are guaranteed to please you as well as your family and friends. And hopefully I can make you laugh a little along the way. I absolutely love these recipes and I hope that you enjoy each and every morsel!
