About Me

Welcome to A Simple Tweak, a food blog with the mission to bring you delicious and easy recipes. My aim is to tweak recipes with the intention to provide you with tips and tricks to save time in the kitchen. 

Eating Thai food. One of my favorites!

Hey there! I’m Evelyn, nice to meet you. I’m the cook, writer, and photographer behind this blog. I have always taken joy with the task of cooking. As a mother of five beautiful children, a great portion of my time is comprised of being in the kitchen. In the summer of 2016, the idea for A Simple Tweak was born. I learned to discover that cooking is more than a task for me. It is a whole-hearted passion of mine. I know from experience how challenging and hectic life can be.  Here at A Simple Tweak, I’ll share easy recipes that will provide relief to everyone from: “The always on the move Multi-Tasker Mom”, to “The Overloaded Single Dad”, and even “The Restless College Student”.  

Every recipe I create will consist of clear step-by-step images and instructions for anyone to follow. I also share with you recipes that you can cook in 30 minutes or less, allowing those of you in a hurry to promptly get the food served hot on the table.

Let me introduce to you the people that taste and approve my recipes!

I’m a proud mother of three amazing girls. They are my whole world, we have fun together.


I also have two boys they are everything to me and my husband, who is my best friend and a great supporter.


Now let me introduce to you my grandkids. They are, as I call them, my two little monsters. They are the sweetest boys ever!
