Hi – I am Diana the proprietor of Cookerati – a fun cooking community.  I have been cooking since I was 14 years old, starting out as a teen cooking dinner for my family – or maybe earlier baking cakes from mixes when I was in girl scouts.  While my cooking style has changed over the years, I still enjoy doing it and I’m always looking to learn a few new things.

My style is family homestyle semi-clean cooking.  I’m also semi-local, semi-seasonal and though I’m based in Ohio, this blog is open to all readers.  Hopefully we can all share our experiences and loves.

I love to get mail. I love to receive feedback, I love to receive new products to review, I love to receive food news, and I love to hear from other foodies. Feel free to contact me at the addresses listed below:
