Goddess of Cooking

Hello and Welcome!

Let me introduce myself. My name is Erica and I maintain the site, Goddess of Cooking. Goddess of Cooking is a blog or a personal website that I have created in the hopes of sharing my recipes with everyone around the globe. Unlike the large recipe sites you might find with thousands of recipes, Goddess of Cooking only has recipes that I have made in my personal life. What’s even better is that I’m not a professional chef so you know that you can recreate these recipes in your own kitchen. The dishes that are collected here come from various places. It might have been seen in a magazine, or a dish that has been past down by my mother, who learned it from her mother and so forth and so on. A great many recipes are simply from my head, and while I’m a cook that does a little bit of this and a pinch of that, I have done my best to include real measurements. With that said, I invite you browse the list of dishes and give one a try. Once you do, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
I am also here to help you. If you are looking for a special recipe to wow guests at your next dinner party, or you have questions about a dish you’re preparing, I am almost always available through email to help. In most cases, I will get back to you within a days time with an answer. So whatever it is, please email feel free to email me here:

How it all began

My love of cooking, I believe, started with my grandmother. She was a secretary at the local middle school and when school was cancelled on account of the weather, I would spend the day with her. We mostly baked cookies together. I had this extremely old children’s cookbook that I believe was from Betty Crocker. In it were several recipes that were simple enough for a child to make and my favorite were paint brush cookies. Basically they were just cut-out sugar cookies. The “paint” was egg yolk, water and food coloring that you literally painted onto the cookies. I hardly ever ate them because, well the food coloring didn’t taste all that good on a cookie, but I always had a blast making them. Later on, after she past, my step-grandmother, who was a first grade teacher, took over the tradition and continued to encourage the love of cooking that I had. To this day, I can remember making cookies with Grammy and how both of us ended up with flour hand-prints on our backsides because that was the most logical choice to dust our hands off.


            As I mentioned before, comments and constructive criticism are always welcomed, however please remember that this is a family site and should be treated as such. Foul language will not be tolerated and those posts containing rube or offensive language and behavior will be deleted.

Nutritional Information

            Please know that I am not a nutritionist, therefore I neither have the time nor the expertise to provide this analysis. I believe in a varied diet, using real butter, real cream, eggs, lots of vegetables, and protein from meat, fish, beans, and cheese. Goddess of Cooking is a reflection of how my family cooks and eats, and since we do not analyze thee nutritional information for our meals, it is not done for the site.


            The photos within the pages of Goddess of Cooking were taken by myself unless otherwise stated. In general I don't mind if my photos are republished on other sites as long as there is a link back to the recipe from which the photo is taken, but I maintain the right to withdraw that permission, and request that a photo of mine be removed from another site, for any reason.
