Hello! My name is Melissa, Welcome to Hungry Food Love!

I am a wife-mother-sister-friend and now blogger that enjoys demonstrating love through food. There is no pastime, activity, entertainment or hobby that makes me more happy than the culinary world. I am not a professional cook, nor do I know it all, but I want to know more. I have an inexplicable desire to share my love for food. Every time I whip-up a super yummy dish, I just feel like yelling out the window how awesome food makes me feel, but then again, why would anyone do that? So instead I am just going to write it down and share it all with you.
Since I moved to the United States from my home country, the Dominican Republic, I have been exposed to so many new influences very different from what I grew up with. The more and more I know, the more I want to learn and try myself.
During the past 5 years, I have embarked on a path of gastronomic self-discovery as this love for everything culinary simmered inside me. To cultivate this love, I have been hosting and entertaining at home, tinkering with the thought of starting a catering business, creating a Facebook page with recipes and step by step photos, contributing to the local newspaper food blog and now finally launching my very own blog.
About the best in my life:
The comfy couch kitchen is my favorite spot in our house. Here, my precious little L, Mr. B and I create new memories every day.
As you can see below, Mr. B is very hands-on in the kitchen.
And here is little L, our great companion that keeps us always smiling, busy and entertained.
About this Blog:
hungryfoodlove was born out of my love for love, delicious eats and kind souls. I wanted to create a place where I can express myself sharing encouraging messages of LOVE while discovering and learning more about FOOD; that is where the foodlove part comes from. HUNGRY stems from how fascinated I was by the powerful reach that many food blogs have nowadays. When trying to define my objectives with this blog, I said to myself “if I ever get to reach anyone I want to take advantage of that opportunity to do some good” and that is why I founded Food for Thought where with your help I will try to raise funds to feed young students in the Dominican Republic.
My dear reader, first of all let me tell you how happy it makes me to know that you are here. I am honored. I don’t know much about you yet but I would love for you to join the conversations, tell me what you think, share your stories, give me ideas and come back for more. I am so stoked that you are here and for that, Thank You!
