At the heart of Akeela Cooks is Akeela's undying love for creating simple and replicable recipes that she can share with her friends, family, and other aspiring cooks. As she moved from Alberta to Toronto, she became uninspired by the size of her kitchen and bombarded by the plethora of great restaurants in her King West neighbourhood. Through eating out far too often, however, she began to miss cooking and rediscovered her love for it by focusing on creating great food that busy young professionals like herself would be able to make on a daily basis. Now that her passion for cooking has been reinvigorated, she uses her blog to serve as inspiration to people with similarly hectic lifestyles. Above all, she strives to show everybody that making great food is not as complicated as it seems.
