welcome to the delicious spoon!


Hi! My name is Alisa, the food photographer and recipe developer behind The Delicious Spoon.

Here you will find easy delicious recipes large enough to feed a family of 4 with usually a few leftovers! I use fresh easy to find ingredients and share quick simple recipes that don’t require loads of skill or fancy gadgets. My focus is on healthy recipes but you will find lots of tasty treats too!

As a travel agent too I enjoy sampling foods from around the world from either places I have been or places I have on my bucket list to visit (it is a very very long list). So you will likely find as well many dishes inspired from countries around the world as well.

Happy cooking and thanks for stopping by, Alisa
