Hi! I'm so glad you're here!

My name is Melanie. I am the creator of From Texas With Love and a travel writer with a focus on history and storytelling. I am currently based in the unique and flavorful Tbilisi, Georgia and have been do-si-doing my way around the world for a few years. I make it my business to dive head first into different cultures. I have a strong appreciation for history and meaningful dishes steeped in heritage and tradition. 

I hope that you enjoy From Texas With Love as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
