About Me

I am a stay at home mom to three kids.  I'm happily married to a wonderful guy ( for over 20 years.)  I live in NE Ohio.   I studied nursing and worked in a local hospital in the Labor and Delivery Unit for several years, before deciding to stay at home with my kids and become a full time mother/home manager.  I think I have always loved cooking and baking, ever since I was a teenager.   I have been on the blog scene for several years...trying to work my way to a healthy weight, most recently with Weight Watchers.  I have had fairly good success this past year, in getting closer to my goal, and shedding 36 pounds to date.  I have been on a quest for healthy, yet delicious recipes to serve my family, and recently, started adding food photos and recipes to my other blog...when it occurred to me that I might have some real fun with posting recipes and pictures on a blog devoted solely to food. 

I've had several of my original recipes published in magazines and cookbooks!  I really enjoy looking at food magazines, new cookbooks, trying out new recipes, and  creating new ones.  Recently, one of my blogger friends published a cookbook, and asked to use and adaptation of one of my original recipes in it.  I said YES!  That recipe is my version of Panera's Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup.  You can find that original recipe right on this blog!

Every recipe that I post I have made...in my real life kitchen and tested on my real life family.  If I try a recipe, with the hopes of posting it, and get a thumbs down...it won't make it to publishing.  I try to be as accurate as possible with the nutrition information I provide. The information is NOT, however, calculated using scientific methods and I am not a Dietitian..  I only provide them as a tool.  Please keep this in mind when using the information for yourself. I check the points ( plus) values against all the tools I have available to me to calculate.  If you happen to see an error, please contact me at the email provided under the "contact me" tab above.

I believe food that is good for you, should also taste good...it should stimulate your senses, and leave you feeling satisfied;  not only in your body, but also in your soul.

Two of my best taste testers by fault! 

So with that I embark on my kitchen adventures.......
