Welcome, family, friends and fellow foodies! I love food, and started this blog to share my experiences with food with those who also love food and/or are learning to cook or bake like me. There will be bread and dessert baking, dinner ideas and restaurant reviews. Basically, everything food-related will be written about!
I did not grow up cooking in the kitchen or watching my mom cook. I ate plenty - Mom's cooking is so yummy - and I washed the dishes. I was the clean up crew. I never cooked, even when I lived alone. I lived pretty much on bagels and sandwiches. When I married, I felt a desire to cook for my most awesome husband and my stepdaughter. I started out easy – Hamburger Helper was my Go-To dinner! My husband is a fantastic cook, and I have learned a lot from helping him and watching him cook over the years. During our daughter’s high school years, I began to cook more and found I actually enjoyed it. Rachael Ray was one of my favorite Food Network cooks, and I tried a lot of her recipes - so much so, that my husband and daughter took to jokingly calling me "Missy May". Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, I really have time to play around and try new recipes. I'm enjoying the adventure, and I hope you do, too!
