Since, I was a kid beggin' mom to let me whip up some crazy concoction in the kitchen, I have always loved cooking and baking from scratch. I hardly ever follow recipes to the "T" and I have found this has given me a very creative outlook on coming up with wonderful homecooked meals with whatever I scrounge up in the kitchen!

Being a newlywed (going on 4 months!), with a hungry and appreciative husband, I have lots of opportunities to experiment with my so-called concoctions and learn the old-fashioned, tried-and-true methods of making from scratch. A lot of my recipes are derived off others, but some of our favorite recipes have been scratched up from random leftovers and combined with hidden treasures found in the back cupboard.

Anyways, enough about me... I hope you enjoy and become inspired by some of my favorite homecooked meals and treats! I have to add, although however corny, that what really helps my recipes is that they are all made with an extra helping of love. Lots and lots of it!

Nothing is more satisfying to me than serving up my family and friends some homemade goodness and hearing nothing but..."Oohs" and "Ahhhs."


  1. Love what you have done with the blog.

    We have a blog called "lifeinlewisburg" and I write about cooking, organizing and gardening, and travel and our crazy family. It's a great way to keep in touch with family and friends.

    I too cook from scratch substitute all the time and my favorite thing to make is refrigerator soup.

    I'm a fan of your blog already.
    Nicely done.

  2. It doesn't sound corny at all to me to bake and cook with lots of love. I tell my husband all the time that I love him so much I'm not even going to use the mixer, I'll do it by hand. That way he knows that I will work more for him... and I think cooking with love tastes better anyway!
