I started Salt Pepper Skillet because I love cooking, photography and sharing meals with friends. This was partially inspired by cooking with friends and constantly being asked for the recipe of what we just ate. I usually wouldn’t have an answer. “hmmm, just throw this with that and add some salt and pepper.” This will hopefully be a nice place for friends and family (oh, and you too) to get recipes and ideas that I enjoy.
I also love photography. It’s so awesome to be able to capture a great moment and save it forever. The food blog is a whole different kind of photography than I have done before. It’s definitely a learning process, but one that is really enjoyable.
The blog’s name came from the idea of only using the bare essentials to develop great flavors. I feel like you really don’t need a lot of ingredients to make awesome food. People often ask “what did you season this with?” The answer is almost always “just a little salt & pepper.” Your ingredient + salt + pepper + a hot skillet can do wonders. That’s where the name came from.
It’s really not that hard to make things taste really darn good. A little passion and creativity, some basic skills and good ingredients are really all you need. One thing I really like about cooking for people who like something is it was probably something super easy to make.
Feel free to send me an email if you have any comments or questions.
