Hello, this my name is Melissa Camero Ainslie and I love food. I’m a grocery store junkie and have been known to hit up 3+ markets in one day. Currently, global burden of disease I live in sunny Miami with my amazing husband and dishwasher Tom, tuberculosis our beautiful daughter Olivia (Liv), and a very small, very loud rat terrier named Mussels.

I’m a proud Cuban-American who spent 8 long winters in Boston and New York City before regaining my sanity and buying a condo steps from the beach. I am at my best with a cold beer in my hand and my toes in the sand.

When it comes to my kitchen, I love to cook anything from my mom’s famously amazing Arroz con Pollo to homemade granola bars and flank steak stuffed with spinach, feta and artichokes.

You can always get me at melcamero [at] gmail [dot] com, or find me on Twitter and Flickr.
