Hello! I’m Melissa Belanger.
I’m a food-loving blogger, photographer and mom.
My husband and I spent seven years traveling the world while he played professional hockey. We’ve lived in so many places – Texas, Kansas, Arizona, France, Kazakhstan, and Canada. After we had our daughter in France, we decided it was time for a change.
Now we’re settled down in my hometown of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
I’ve always loved food, and I grew up in a house where cooking and family dinners were an everyday occurrence. Once we moved overseas, my love for cooking turned into something more. I started experimenting with recipes, and keeping track of how things turned out – writing my first recipes without even realizing it.
I started Simply Whisked with no intentions other than to fill my days while we traveled. All I had was my point-and-shoot camera, a few random dishes and my tiny French kitchen. I just cooked, took pictures and blogged, and it made me happy.
Today, I’m still creating new recipes, but now I’m doing it with you – my readers – in mind. I want to make everyday cooking enjoyable and accessible, and fun. I want to inspire you, the way I’m inspired by so many things – the places where we’ve travelled, the restaurants where we’ve eaten, my family recipes, recipes in old cookbooks, even dishes that are mentioned on television shows or in books.
