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 wonderful, amazing, adorable, crazy little man! He is one (how did that happen?) and an absolute dream come true! I am in no way a gourmet chef. I love to experiment and my picky husband 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.
I’m very worried this blog is going to make me fat. I have a major sweet tooth…I just can’t resist them (or potato chips for that matter). So here’s hoping I don’t gain 10lbs.
