I’m Xena Kai!

I love to research, plan, and investigate. I am a type-A perfectionist and go-getter.

I am a housewife and I live in the beautiful state of Florida. I started cooking and baking a year ago simply to eat healthier. I was tired of eating premade foods loaded with preservatives and bad ingredients.

I learned how to cook quickly and pretty soon, my homemade food became so delicious that both my husband and I only wanted to eat food that I cooked. Everything else (surprisingly) pales in comparison.

It wasn’t soon before I started to develop my own recipes. I didn’t realize I was making my own original recipes until MONTHS after I started doing it. My husband and I would share pictures of food I made and friends would ask for the recipe. However, I couldn’t easily share those recipes with them since they were all in my head.

I started Food Over Comfort to share those recipes with the world. I hope you get out of your comfort zone and cook something delicious.
