Cook the Story


Hello Food Lover and Welcome to Cook the Story!


I’m Christine Pittman, a professional food writer, recipe developer and food photographer. Here at I give you tips and recipes that help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table with family and friends.


What are you hungry for? My approach to recipes has 2 main focuses – both of which get you more time with your loved ones. First, I focus on quick weeknight meals that leave you with more precious minutes for your family. Second are easy appetizers, desserts and entertaining dishes, that let you spend more time chatting with friends and less time cooking for them.



I’d be delighted to send you a weekly email with time-saving tips, recipe ideas and more. Subscribe here:
