My name is Francielle. I am originally from Brazil and I grew up around food. I have always been very interested in food. My family encouraged me to cook since I was a little kid, but only after college it’s when I really started to spend more time in the kitchen.
When I graduated from college I was engaged to my husband and I was working with advertising. I was 21, maybe too young to know what I really wanted from life, and I wasn’t enjoying my work. I was very discouraged. After a long day at work, I would come back home and cook meals to satisfy my body and my soul and I would try to give myself a break from all of that career disappointment.
After I got married in Brazil, I realized that cooking was more important to me than working in advertising and I was enjoying it so much that I decided to give up on my career. That’s when I moved to the United States with my husband so he could do his PHD program at the university in Michigan.
I was home most of the day, and spoke very little English at the time. I decided to create a youtube channel in Portuguese, for my Brazilian friends and share my recipes there. That’s when I created “Vai Comer o Quê ”
After working with my Brazilian channel for 5 years I decided it was time to share my vision and passion about food in English as well. So I can share recipes that speak to me, that are comforting and that show a little bit about who I am. Knead a Taste is a blog that exist to inspire you, make you cook more and enjoy food more.
I currently live in Michigan with my husband Lincoln, my baby son Joshua and my dog Ginger. And in here, you’ll find simple recipes, mostly vegetarian, and all delicious and easy to prepare.
