Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Today is my first day up and running....Please stay tune as I update recipes, pictures and ideas.  I love comments and will try to respond in a timely manner.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask away.

 I am not a professional chef, just a Mom that likes to feed her family good food and with healthy and delicious meals.  That is not to say, that we don't eat the occasional  treat, yummy or sugary food.  We do try to eat organic, local and things made from scratch.

I am always learning and reading in hopes that I can make good decisions, recommend the best products and share helpful ideals. I admire all the awesome cooks and friends that have inspired me to put into writing the things that I love: cooking, recipes, thrifty shopping and photography/writing.

Again, thank you for stopping by and I hope that you will find something useful along your visits to my blog that you can share with friends too.
