Hi, I’m Nicole. Welcome to Delicious Everyday. This site is packed full of unique vegetarian and vegan recipes that I hope you’ll love.
I believe life is too short to eat bad food! Despite this diet-obsessed world of today, I truly believe in eating whatever you want, in moderation. If you feel like indulging in a piece of chocolate cake, do it! If you crave a crunchy healthy salad, eat it. No judgement, no guilt. Food should be an experience that we enjoy.
Food, while fuel for our body, is a magical thing. It has the ability to change and elevate moods and it has the ability to bring people together in a truly wonderful way.
So what is my food philosophy? I focus on creating delicious, home cooked food, made from fresh, whole ingredients. I love cooking food from scratch. In fact, I grow many of my fresh veggies and herbs in my own home garden. I love seeing a pile of ingredients turn into something entirely new – it’s what makes cooking a magical experience.
So, at Delicious Everyday, I strive to share my genuine love of food and my passion for the simple art of cooking.
While I don’t have any formal training, I’ve been passionate about food for as long as I can remember. I made the choice to become a vegetarian at a very young age, just 12 years old! It was an easy transition for me. But I lived in a family full of omnivores, and finding vegetarian or vegan food at a restaurant 20+ years ago was an impossible feat. I learned quickly that if I wanted to eat great food, I would need to learn how to make it myself!
Today, I’m more passionate about food than ever. I see cooking as an art form, and I enjoy creating dishes that show everyone how easy and rewarding it can be to “go veggie”. I love proving that vegetarian food can truly be interesting and delicious. And that it’s not all rabbit food and tofu!
So what can you expect from Delicious Everyday?
On Delicious Everyday you’ll find recipes that are vegetarian, sometimes vegan and occasionally gluten free.
I like to focus on fresh whole foods. (Although I’m a Mom of a toddler, so I admit to cheating sometimes!) I guide the everyday home cook – like me – to create delicious vegetarian and vegan meals with practical and approachable recipes.
I cook food that I love, and that I would want to share with my family and friends – whether it’s trendy or not. I don’t share recipes simply because they are popular or “on trend”. If I don’t genuinely enjoy what I’m eating, then a recipe for it won’t appear on the blog.

A little about me
I’m based in sunny Florida, where I live with my husband, rambunctious four-year old son, and big, goofy dog.
I’ve spent most of my career in the corporate world, working in marketing for several major brands. I love working with brands and businesses to help create their vision with food. I love what I do, and I love the boundless energy and enthusiasm that comes with truly doing something you are passionate about.
So, what else can I tell you about me?
I’m quiet until you get to know me, and then you can’t shut me up! I’m obsessed with food and I love a good glass of wine. I’m a Mom of a two-year old boy, which has been the most challenging and rewarding thing I’ve ever undertaken. And I love animals (hence the vegetarian thing). I have two lovable dogs, who have been my babies since long before my real baby came along. And I grew up riding horses, working in a therapeutic riding center, and continue to be involved in horse rescue in my local community.
I’m an avid photographer. Before coming to Delicious Everyday and delving into food photography, I focused on travel and nature photography, and have been fortunate to have my work exhibited throughout the Atlanta and Tampa Bay areas.
I’m a bit of a travel addict. And the first thing I do after booking a trip, is figure out where I am going to eat! In the past couple years, my travels have taken me through Spain, Greece, Italy, France, India, and Thailand. I hope to share more of those travel experiences (and tips on how to eat well as a traveling vegetarian) on Delicious Everyday in the future!
If you make any of my recipes I’d genuinely love to hear from you. Leave a comment on the recipe or tag me on Instagram using #deliciouseveryday so that I can see. Every time I see someone making one of my recipes it makes my day! Honestly, there is no greater thrill than sharing the love of food.
I’m so excited that you’ve stopped by and hope that you won’t be a stranger. Subscribe to my email list below, and I will make sure you never miss a recipe!
