About Me

Welcome to Mama Likes to Cook!

I’m a single mom of 2 from Southern California. I’ve been blogging since 2008 and thought it was about time that I started a food blog just for fun.

I am not a professional, but thoroughly enjoy cooking and sharing meals with my family and friends.

My family is adventurous – always happy to try new foods. I use lots of fresh ingredients and shop regularly at the wonderful assortment of ethnic markets we have here in SoCal.

I am a vegetarian. My kids are not. We have a garden, fruit trees and some chickens.

I’m looking forward to sharing my food adventures with you!
