How it all started
First and foremost, I am a wife to my prince charming and a mother to our three children. All dishes you see here, are family approved, tested by all of us. We cook every day and I enjoy baking sweet treats with our children.
This blog started as a way to share my recipes with friends and family. It helped me discover a whole community of food-loving people. In 11 years, this blog grew into a passion for both baking and cooking, food photography, and connecting with people that like to gather around a table.
The goal of every recipe we share is to make cooking easy for you. Our posts include ingredient photos and step-by-step images so you know what you need and what your dish should look like during the cooking process. We strive to include ingredient substitutions and our best tips so the final result is nothing short of fantastic!

Crunchy Creamy Sweet family
Loved your post about the beet smoothie. My parents had a sizable garden when I was growing up. beets were on our dinner table a lot. That early exposure led to a lifetime of 'beet appreciation'. I love them! My favorite as a child was not the beet itself but the greens. My mother would fix them like spinach and serve them with a splash of lemon juice. They were not only beautiful but tasty as well. Cook them as any leafy green vegetable. I think you will like them!
Hi Margie! Thank you so much for your comment! I am so happy to see that a lot of us enjoy beets. I am definitely going to try your suggestion on the greens - that sounds fantastic! Have a beautiful day!
