Hi, I’m Melissa, Owner and Publisher at MelClaire.com. I’m also a mother, grandmother, wife and nurse who loves to spend time with my family in addition to cooking, reading, sewing, DIY projects and now blogging.
I’ve found a new love in blogging and am having so much fun being part of this online community of fantastic people. I’ve learned so much by taking on this little project including mastering many technical skills I never dreamt possible. Sharing my recipes and amateur decorating skills on social media and with my readers is so much fun! I might have been a little slow to the game but I’m here now!
I guess I’d have to say my most favorite pastime is cooking and serving meals to my family. It wasn’t always this way, and I spent many years trying to figure out what to cook, how to shop for groceries efficiently and economically and how to cook it correctly once I had all the other parts down. I’m proud to say I think I have some of it figured out now and I’d love to share some of those lessons with you.
I love to make a recipe from scratch, documenting the steps, adding a little of this and that and adjusting it as I go so I can share the perfect recipes with you. I also have a treasure trove of old family recipes that I plan to share in the future so stay tuned.
Another feature I’ll add with time are product reviews. I’ve always been the sort of person to tell anyone who’ll listen about a product that I’ve found to be useful, taste fantastic, is a time saver or a great value. I love to share bargains and my opinions of products in my everyday offline life, so I might as well start sharing them here as well! You all may be more interested in my opinion than the man at the grocery store trying to decide which apples his wife would prefer. Yes, sometimes they don’t even ask my opinion and I feel the need to share it. I need to work on that. 🙁
Last but definitely not least, I love Jesus. I love what He’s done for all of us and I try to remember that each and every day. I’m not perfect, nor will I ever be, but I’ll keep trying and praying to be better each day. I’ll continue to strive to make sure my site is an online place of goodness and light and that it remains forever clean and wholesome.
Thanks so much for visiting my site! I am so glad you stopped by and would love to hear from you anytime.
(I’m also a contributor on AllSheCooks.com. You can find some of my recipes and many other great recipes over there too!!)
