Hello and welcome! So this is my very first blog post! If you’re reading this, thank you for taking the time to stop by my site. I hope that as my blog develops and grows you find it to be a useful and informative resource in your kitchen.
I am an avid home cook and I really enjoy being in the kitchen as much as possible. I get such satisfaction out of watching a meal come together and I also find cooking to be such relaxing therapy for me. I really love the meal planning, the gathering of ingredients, and even the simple act of stirring a spoon. When I am in my kitchen, I am in my happy place!
Back in the day I loved sinking my teeth into complicated and time consuming recipes however, being a mom to my 8 year old daughter, Emerson, and my VERY active 4 year old son, Grayden, takes up so much of my time that those complicated recipes have been pushed aside for meals that are easier to pull together. I realize that whether you’re home all day with your kids or you’re out in the working world there are just never enough hours in the day and when dinnertime rolls around, simplicity and time efficiency are key.
Therefore, my goal with this blog is to share with you uncomplicated, home cooking that with a little effort and planning anyone is capable of doing. I have two picky eaters at home as well so I really like to cook meals and desserts that are less fussy and more along the lines of comfort food, the meals you remember as a kid in your Grandma’s kitchen. Let’s save the complicated, gourmet meals for the holidays and special occasions! Hopefully along the way I’ll also be able to share with you useful tips and ideas, interesting articles, and some of my own family stories and adventures in the kitchen. If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to let me know!
Thanks again for stopping by and I will leave you with this:
