"menu licious" ~delicious food  ~fine art ~by alissa.

Hi, I am Alissa. Thanks for stopping by.

At the same time that I started this blog, I was caring and cooking for my grandmother Elsa. 

I cooked all her meals for the last six years of her life until the day she passed away, December 20th, 2013. Elsa lived to be 103. While I cooked for Elsa,  I researched, and used ingredients that improved her health issues that we all develop as we get older.

I never took the time to write a recipe down, until I started to post them for friends and family. I usually create them on the spot, tasting and adding ingredients as I go along. Some recipes belonged to my grandmother. Some of the foods I eat in moderation, some I eat regularly, and others are entirely new to me.

You'll find that the recipes include all sorts of delicious food. Hopefully, the recipes and tips that I have posted will inspire you to cook creatively and joyfully for yourself and loved ones.

When I  am not posting recipes, I am busy with my art, inventions and photography. I love creating, and coming up with ideas that make our life simpler.

I also enjoyed making people look and feel better; I was a master hairstylist, and colorist for 25 years in addition to an artist; I chose to end my cosmetologist career when my grandmother needed me more.
