What’s up with all the photographs? I know for myself that
I love seeing a photograph of a recipe before I attempt to make it (come on, you have to see the finished product, right?) and
step-by-step instructions are a bonus. I decided then that I would include
photographs and step-by-step instructions on my blog to make cooking easier for
everyone. I want you to feel like I am right there
cooking alongside you in your kitchen. All of my photographs are of real food that we’re actually going to eat. When you make one of my recipes, your dish should look pretty similar to the one in my photograph.
I like using real
ingredients in my cooking. It may take a bit longer to prepare a meal, but if
you plan it out ahead of time then it’s a fairly easy task to accomplish. I
always prep my ingredients ahead of time so when the real cooking starts I have
everything on hand ready to go.
What else am I interested in besides cooking and blogging? I love to read, (historical fiction, classics, spiritual books as well as science fiction, yes I read and loved the Twilight series) hike, climb mountains, run in the woods, be in nature, mountain bike, spend the day with my feet in the sand on the beach, photograph, travel, clean (yes, sadly I love to clean) and just spend my time hanging out with family and friends. I beleive we’re here to live life to the fullest and to connect and love one another, so I try and do things that connect me with people, nature and life.
This blog consists of family friendly meals, favorite desserts as well as “mommy” meals. There also might be a few random tips here and there. I hope you find some new favorite recipes from my blog that you can incorporate into your recipe box. Feel free to email
me or leave a comment if you have a question or just want to say hi!
Have fun and get cooking!
