Hi. My name is Simone and I love food. I love to eat it, I love to cook it and I love to photograph it. Food is a huge part of my life and I decided to share my passion with all of you.
I grew up in Toronto, Canada and currently live in Dallas, Texas with my husband and two little girls.
I have a background in product development, having created products that have been sold at Trader Joe’s, Sam’s Club and Costco, as well as distributed throughout the foodservice industry and various grocery chains
Alexandra’s Gourmet was named after my first born, Alexandra. She has always been a very picky eater and I had to develop a large collection of recipes that would work not only for her, but for the rest of the family as well.
Having two kids means I meet a lot of parents and we always seem to discuss the topic of food. Feeding picky eaters seems to be a common concern so I am always sharing recipes that work for my family, in the hopes that they will work for others as well.
Through all these conversations I have noticed that parents seem to always feel pressure to create new and exciting meals for the family. Adding that to the already time consuming list of to-dos is usually a cause or stress and irritation. I feel food should be fun and enjoyable so I have created a collection of recipes to help with that problem. All my recipes are easy to follow and usually quick to prepare.
