Greetings Dear Reader


I am glad you found me. Now I know that if you wanted to know a bit about me you could check out my “about me” page. However for you dear reader I thought I would give you a little bit more information about me than you can find on that page.

I love cooking! I do not know what age I first started cooking, but I do know that my sister and I would help prepare the evening meal when we got home from school. Growing up our family would be considered¬† “meat and potatoes” eaters. My dad really wasn’t into eating casseroles. Honestly we would have meat, potatoes and either corn or beans with every dinner. I probably have eaten my weight in hamburgers and baked potatoes. In high school I worked in the produce department at Hy-Vee. There I was able to try a variety of fruits and vegetables I may not normally have tried. In college I worked “on the line” at one of the dining centers on campus, making omelets and pancakes for those that were up in time for breakfast. It was there where I realized how much I really liked cooking. My husband was known as a picky eater growing up, but I have changed that. Don’t get me wrong I love meat and potatoes, but I am so glad that Alex is open to my crazy kitchen experiments that I bring to the table.

I like to think of myself as a creative person, and being in the kitchen allows me to express my creativity. I love to try new things, I am constantly reading recipes and thinking about recipes. If I ever won the Powerball, I would take a culinary vacation, eating my way around the world (then hire a personal trainer). Food is important to me, we need it to survive, we have taste buds to enjoy the great flavors and usually I am enjoying it with people whom I deeply love.

I write this blog to document what my family is eating and enjoying, but I also want to share what we have enjoyed with others. I am curious dear reader what brought you here. I know my Grandma reads my blog (she and my grandpa are great in the kitchen) and I know a few of my friends read this, but I am curious as to who else is out there.

** Please leave me a comment telling me who you are, where you’re from, what brought you here, and please tell me if you would like to see any particular recipes. Like I said I like to try new flavors and cooking techniques. Also let me know if you’ve tried something I posted, I would love to hear feedback. So please don’t be shy!

Thank you for reading!

    Hi. I’m from Omaha and found about about your blog through the Omaha food blog roll. I don’t get to cook to often, but I enjoyed seeing that you are trying to incorporate more meat-free recipes. Hopefully at some point I’ll try one!
