Growing up, the kitchen was the heart of my childhood home. My mom didn’t always enjoy cooking, but she loved baking. No matter what she was making, I could usually be found in the kitchen with her. Now the kitchen is the heart of my own home. I love to bake and cook. Here, I plan to share my mom’s recipes that I grew up with, the things I love to bake, and recipes from around the web that my family loves.

Recipes: these are recipes that my family enjoys, or that I just enjoy. Some come from my mom, some come from the Internet, some I made up.

Thoughts About Food: I cook and bake almost every week. Sometimes The Husband cooks, so I don’t. But I still think about food. Like meal planning. Which I suck at.
