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

    I stumbled onto your blog from a focaccia recipe Google search and amended my recipe to include your infused olive oil, which made all the difference (next time I’ll try your recipe since mine was less flavorful). Then I saw a link about your trip to the San Juan Islands, which seemed weird, since I’m baking this in Mumbai, India! I grew up on Whidbey and the Seattle area and my husband hails from Okanogan County. Namaste from India!

    I just love your easy blueberry muffin recipe. I am going to make them for work for about 40 people. They are so easy and delicious.

    Hi from California! I just came across your recipes on YouTube while looking for my Thanksgiving Recipes. For someone who is a bit insecure in the kitchen; I get overwhelmed by the options of recipes on the internet, choosing the best one, where to buy the ingredients, etc. I love how simple and short your videos are, most ~2 min long. No need to complicate something simple like following directions of a recipe. I work with a bunch of chefs and I find their egos to be annoyingly big when at the end of the day it’s just food. So thanks for your modesty and simplifying the process and I will look forward to cooking with your recipes in the future!

    Finally, after about 30 years (no kidding) of trying and failing to make the perfect pie crust, I found a pie crust that makes sense! Starting off with only part of the flour then combine it all later in the process; who’d have thought this would make such a difference!!! It’s so simple to follow, paying attention to the details. It always seems to be the details that matter most in everything we do. People love my pies but I’m never satisfied with the quality of my crust, which to me is “the icing on the cake”. What bothered me most was always the pulling feeling that I got instead of an easy roll out. Thank you so much for making your expertise available to so many of us.
