Welcome to Simple Bites

Here at Simple Bites we want to come alongside you in your kitchen and demonstrate that great food doesn’t have to be complicated or fussy, and it can be so much more than macaroni and cheese.

Our desire is to inspire you in your day-to-day efforts to put wholesome, delicious food on the table for your family. We will provide you with an encouraging perspective as well as practical application on how to manage your kitchen and provide the best for your family—and yourself!

Along the way we’ll bring you tutorials, tips and tricks on every subject from preserving food to menu planning, and provide inspiration for both daily meals and holiday menus.

Me? Simple?

I discovered simple in a most unusual place. I had just walked away from a high-stress job in a renowned fine-dining establishment and was looking for something more. Relaxing on my first vacation in years, I found myself at a roadside café just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and experienced one of the best meals of my life—not to mention the biggest surprise. The dishes weren’t composed of delicate foams, trails of powder as well as six or seven other elements; rather they combined three or four bold and utterly fresh Latin flavors to create simple, yet unforgettably great food.

That was the start of my journey toward simplicity. Over the years, through motherhood, home management, four years of food blogging, and *gulp* turning thirty, I’ve learned that simple living is vital to my happiness—and to those around me.


Sometimes the best way to start something new is to jump in with both feet, and this is what we are doing here at Simple Bites. We’ve got an exciting month planned and are eagerly looking forward to the year ahead. I hope you’ll be joining us!

I’m Aimée, editor around here, although I’m still not used to the title. I’ll be bringing you the very best of all the knowledge I have gleaned from years of both professional and home-style cooking. I don’t claim to know it all; on the contrary, I learn something new about food every day.

My children don’t care that I have a background in professional cooking; they’ve made that clear since the first time they tossed food under the high chair. They like to keep me humble – and grounded, which is a good thing.
