About Us

Hello! We are so glad you’re here. Inspired Taste is a food blog, created by us, Joanne and Adam Gallagher. Here you’ll find recipes that are easy-to-make, worth your time and that you’ll want to make over and over again.

Adam and Joanne Gallagher of Inspired Taste

Simply put, Inspired Taste is a collection of recipes we’ve created in our own kitchen. Together.

We’re looking for food that we love. After eating it, do we want more? Was it easy and more importantly fun to make? Did it make us smile, reach in for more and were we still talking about it hours after finishing? If it’s a YES, then we’ll share it with you.

We’re on YouTube!

About Us

We’re completely in love with food. Inspired Taste is our creative outlet and we love that it allows us to connect with you. (Your comments make us smile). We’ve always found a connection to each other through food and cooking and some of the best connections (and memories) with others have been through food.

We cook all the time. Together. Our days revolve around food, at home and when we travel.

How Do You Work Together?

We keep things simple. Talk aloud and give feedback. Adam takes most of the photos, Joanne takes lead on recipe creation. We both test, taste, fuss and critique.

There’s a laptop connected to a big monitor in our kitchen and coffee helps. A lot.

We hardly argue, but when we do, we stop everything and work through it. Chocolate helps, too.

Lovey Dovey Stuff

We met in high school. We were engaged in 2008 and were married overlooking the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in front of 50 people.

We danced to What a Wonderful World. Our honeymoon was 10 days in Costa Rica and staying true to our love of cooking, we cooked on our honeymoon. (We rented a house instead of staying in a hotel. It was perfect). During our honeymoon, we went deep-sea fishing. Joanne caught the biggest fish of the day and Adam caught the smallest. Naturally.


We’re a family of two and a half. Marmalade (our cat) is the half. That’s Marmalade. (Just as every pet owner believes, we are sure she’s the cutest, funniest and most adorable cat in.the.world).

We live in Walla Walla, Washington and love the Pacific Northwest!

    Hi Guys!!!
    Your photos and videos are really of the most amazing quality! Great job. I have been frustrated that I am not able to get clear photos or videos for my food. Would you mind sharing what kind of camera and settings you use? I really appreciate all your beautiful work.
    Thanks! And keep it coming with the great food!

      Hi Robert, Thanks so much! We use a Nikon D810 and shoot with natural light. Settings vary depending on the day, though.

    Trying the scratch brownies, (after trying to find them on Ghirardelli site, but to no avail! Using the large can of cocoa powder I have, the batter tasted great, 5 more minutes I can test them! I just nuked the butter and added everything, very easy, and great idea about the parchment! I have had a roll laying in my drawer for years! Thanks for this recipe, and now I am hooked on your site!

    OMG! I found your blog when I was looking for a way to cook a butternut squash. It came out super delicious and I also tried one of your chicken recipes that night. I can’t way to try more of your super easy recipes! I’m not the best cook, but I think you guys have given me some hope!

      Thanks for sharing 🙂 We’re not the “best cooks” either! We’re so glad you found us.

    Oh No…shouldn’t you have posted a warning about then Banana Bread being addictive…I literally JUST finished baking it & now it’s half gone. grrrrr….LoL….even Soleil (golden retreiver) is giving me the “Look” I will be back for more delightfully addictive recipes. Keep up the good work !

    Your pie crust recipe is the best. I’ve tried many recipes from some of the best cook books but none come even close to your recipe for flakiness,taste and being easy to work with. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Gina

    Hi there,

    I discovered your blog while looking for a hummus recipe. I am hooked, and have subscribed to your newsletter and youtube channel.

    I would love to make the apple pie cupcakes, but I live in South Africa, and we cannot find the cinnamon rolls here. Any suggestion to an alternative basis I can use?

    Thanks, and keep up the inspiration!
    Cape Town, South Africa
