About Me

Welcome to A Simple Tweak, a food blog with the mission to bring you delicious and easy recipes. I aim to tweak recipes 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 in the task of cooking. As a mother of five beautiful children, a great portion of my time comprises 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 get the food served hot on the table promptly.

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!
