My mission is simple: to help you level up your cooking skills and transform your kitchen into a haven of delicious, nourishing meals, tasty sweets, and filling snacks all while building bonds with those you love and making lasting memories.
Hello, culinary enthusiasts and budding chefs! I'm Chef Ashley and I'm thrilled to extend a warm welcome to my new blog for Back 2 Basics Cooking. Whether you're a seasoned home cook or just starting out on your culinary journey, I'm glad you're here.
My husband, three wonderful kids, and I reside in the beautiful city of Columbia, Missouri. Cooking has been a passion of mine since my earliest memories, and there's nothing I love more than sharing this passion and knowledge with others no matter their age or skill level.
This blog will be our shared kitchen table, a place where we'll explore all aspects of cooking together. We'll tackle common kitchen challenges, share useful tips and tricks, offer easy-to-follow recipes, and I'll even provide product reviews when I find something that's just too good not to share. This is your go-to resource for cooking topics.
And while I offer in-person cooking classes in Columbia, this blog isn't merely an extension of that. It's a platform to create a global community where we can learn, share, and grow together. So, whether you're from Columbia or anywhere else in the world, I hope you'll find value here. Because my goal for Back 2 Basics Cooking is to help as many people as possible learn more culinary skills and that they enjoy themselves while doing so!
I invite you to explore the blog, try out the recipes and tips, share your experiences, and keep coming back for more. We're on an exciting journey together, and I can't wait to see where it takes us. If there is something you are looking for and it isn't here, I encourage you to ask!
Now, let's roll up our sleeves, tie on our aprons, and dive into the world of flavors and aromas that await us. Welcome to our culinary community - let's make it an exciting, supportive, delicious, and adventurous one!
Let's get cooking!
