Adam and Joanne Gallagher of Inspired Taste - We are so happy you’re here. We’re Adam and Joanne, the creators and publishers of Inspired Taste.

Joanne’s been to culinary school, but we’re proud to say that the majority of our cooking knowledge is self-taught. We love to cook and try new things in the kitchen and when we fall in love with something, we happily share it with you.

We’re both obsessed with food and are proud to make cooking and sharing recipes our full-time careers. Our goal is simple, we hope to inspire you to get in the kitchen and cook our fresh and delicious recipes.

We believe cooking should be fun and never stressful. It’s because of this that we do our best to make our recipes adaptable and flexible so you can make them match your personality, diets and needs. You’ll often find we share options for substitutions. Maybe you don’t eat eggs, but you want to make our healthy banana bread. Well, scroll to the notes section of the recipe and you’ll find out how to eliminate the eggs from the recipe. If we haven’t shared a substitution, go ahead and comment on the recipe or email. We’ll do our best to help you out.

This recipe blog is about easy flexible recipes for home cooks that are fun to follow. Many of our recipes have short recipe videos to help you out and if there isn’t a video, it’s likely you’ll find step photos for the trickier steps of the recipe.

If we haven’t answered all your questions, check the comments section! Our more popular recipes have hundreds of reviews. One of our favorite comment sections is for our granola bars. We love to scroll through and read all the ways our readers have adapted our recipe to their favorite ingredients.

We started Inspired Taste in 2009, so we’ve been here a while. We’ve also worked with other brands and developed recipes that have been published on other websites, in magazines and even in cookbooks. While we love working for others, our passion is right here on Inspired Taste.

Since 2009, we’ve learned so much and can’t wait to learn more. We hope you’ll stick around and learn with us.

Happy Cooking! Adam and Joanne

    Inspiring cooking site with lots of helpful info and recipes!! Thank You! Stumbled on this site looking on the internet for information about how to use the bags of chilis that I purchased at a Latino market. Very helpful information about the chilis and love the homemade chili powder and taco seasoning recipes!!

    I made your carrot cake for my very dear friend. It is her favorite cake so it was a little risky, plus our mutual friend is a baker…well, she loved it! She said it was the best carrot cake she has ever had and that I must make it for her birthday! Thank you so much! Tomorrow I will be trying out the pumpkin bread with the chocolate chunks and orange zest. I will let you know how it goes!

    I made your mayonnaise – Bingo! It was perfect the first time. Hope I can repeat this act again;)

    Great little web site full of ideas and tips on how to make your own hummus, tahini etc., etc., instead of spending your hard earned dollars at the supermarket. Great find and now added to my favorites. Good job guys.

    I love your recipes and you are all,(including cat-child Marmalade ),so adorable! My son and daughter in law are raising my grand daughter to be vegan, which makes baking the treats that we used to love, a bit of a challenge. Have the two of you ever considered creating some vegan dessert type items ? such as scones, cookies, etc. (I am not a fan of coconut based products for baking or cooking.)

      Hi Deborah, Thank you so much for your kind comment. We do not have many vegan baking recipes on the site, but will definitely add your suggestion to our list. Thank you so much for your support!

    Hi Joanne and Adam – I made your 30-minute Pork Tenderloin with the cider sauce the other evening. I had it with mashed potatoes and corn and we just love it. This recipe is good enough for a holiday meal. I’ve been cooking for 43 years and there is always room for change and/or improvement. I will be visiting your site again soon. You are a cute couple. Thank you so much!

    Hey there, I never comment on blogs but this time I have to let you know how much I enjoyed your great post about Walla Walla. I am an Australian living in Canada and visited Walla Walla in the mid 80s and have wanted to return since then. Your description reminded me how lovely the town is and just made me want to visit that much more. We visited the Leonettii winery on a good day and even had a barrel tasting. The wine was spectacular. The world must have agreed because there is no way I can afford a bottle these days. Maybe we can get in a quick visit before the snow hits us here north of the 49th.

    Hi! I came across your recipe for Easy Three Ingredient Tomato Soup while researching how to extend my one can of Tomato Bisque to feed three adults. Oh my gosh! Your soup was so good that I was happy to put that can back in the cupboard. It took no effort at all and tasted so good. Thank you Joanne and Adam!
