Hello! Welcome to my kitchen. I am a home cook who has been cookbook obsessed ever since I was old enough to read, learning how to cook recipe by recipe ever since.
My mother was also a inspiration, but my only regret is that I didn’t write down more of what she had to teach me. This has inspired me to start this blog, share all of my “healthy-ish” family favorites and personal recipes with those looking to prepare meals they love in their own kitchen.
Who doesn’t love to eat at a restaurant? I know that I need a break here and there, but it’s not easy on the wallet. I also need to know what is in my food. My goal is to cook meals that are mostly from scratch with the best ingredients that time and budgets allow.
I also try to think realistically, it is too much pressure to follow all of the advice we hear, all of the time. I am a firm believer that if we are going to indulge, homemade is the better option. Anytime I can avoid added & unnecessary ingredients from pre-packaged foods, I feel that I am making a healthier decision for myself and my family.
Follow along with my food journey as I make bread from “scratch” using the dough cycle of my bread machine, dive into the world of sourdough, bake treats to put smiles on the faces of those I love, and write about recipes old and new hoping to inspire all of you to cook at home too!
