Welcome to Annie Tortellini!
My name’s Annie, I’m a 22 year old from Philadelphia and I love making real good food. Ever since I developed a desire to start eating a more “whole foods focused and less processed” diet, I found my love for cooking! I was so surprised at how easy it was to make something SO delicious. I think people see cooking as a burden, a house chore or something overly complicated; a lot of people think cooking is straight up not fun.
But it doesn’t have to be any of those things if you don’t want it to be! For me, cooking is a creative outlet, a way to nourish my hard-working body, a way to decompress, and a true treat to myself! I really love it… but my goal here isn’t necessarily to make you fall in love with cooking. Annie Tortellini is my way of bringing you into my kitchen to share with YOU how I cook! It’s an opportunity to show you how easy it can be to cook a nourishing and delicious meal right at home! I want to give you the skills, tips and tricks you need to feel confident in your own kitchen!
Here are just a few of the things you’ll find in my kitchen. I love to cook seasonally and for me that means creating really cozy and comforting meals in the winter time and really refreshing and bright meals in the summertime. I also love to shop my pantry and cook on a bit of budget. BUT, the bottom line here really is the simplicity of my meals in addition to their amazing flavors. I also highly encourage riffing off my recipes, or using your own personal interpretation, when it comes to things like spice choices and measurements or add-ins (and don’t worry, I’ll give you plenty of tips for this)! In these recipes you’ll find simple techniques and common ingredients. With the inclusion of thoughtful directions, you’re sure to create a delicious and exciting meal on your dinner table at the end!
I almost forgot to mention… my blog! On my blog, you can find inspiration for building up your own kitchen through my personal favorites on equipment and ingredients. You can also expect to learn about some of my cooking philosophies and how you can elevate your own cooking. Of course, I’ll also share all about my own food adventures out in the awesome restaurant scene of Philadelphia and beyond!
I’m so excited you’re here and I can’t wait to create new recipes that I know you’ll love just as much as I do!
