Welcome to The Sampler, a blog dedicated to providing quick and simple recipes for the everyday chef! It’s tough finding recipes that are easy to prepare and cook after a long day. As a recent student and busy professional, I often found myself being enticed by the lure of fast food and delivery that promised easy clean-up and zero pre-planning. Both my diet and wallet were suffering! I knew there had to be a way to cook food that was quick, simple, affordable, and healthy. This blog provides just that: simple recipes I found and developed to establish a weekly cooking routine. And now I’m sharing these recipes with you, both as motivation to continue this journey and to help others like me who wanted to cook, but were afraid of the work!
