I am a self-taught cook/baker. Well, my mom and her best friend Kathe deserve much of the credit. They inspired me, educated me and encouraged me in the kitchen. Growing up, preparing dinner was a family affair; we all worked together in the kitchen to accomplish something delicious. My brother and I were never told we were in the way, even when our “helping” wasn’t much help at all. There are even pictures of me when I was just 3 or 4 sitting at my play table peeling potatoes. I loved creating in the kitchen from the very beginning.
I am a stay at home mama to my crazy, adorable, amazing kids Noah (4) and Hannah (1). They keep me beyond busy and sometimes a bit crazy but I love them with all my heart. I am in no way a gourmet chef. I love to experiment and although my husband Joel is pretty picky, he is usually pretty game for new things. We aren’t fancy. We like simple, easy foods that taste delicious. My goal is to share recipes that are easy to understand and created with accessible, yummy ingredients.
