About Us:

Welcome to our About Us page! We are so glad you are here! 

Here is a little bit about us:

My husband and I live in Toronto, Canada with our two kids and our Havanese puppy named Oreo. 

Oreo is fully white with one brown ear.  He looks nothing like an Oreo cookie.  In fact, the only true resemblance to the cookie is how sweet he is.

Take a look:

Anyway – Oreo always seems to get me off track – I graduated from university with a four-year diploma in Information Technology  (we won’t mention what year ;).  But I found myself completely lost in the field.  Being 17, it was very difficult to decide what I wanted to do for the next 50 years or so.  I figured IT sounded interesting.  Boy was I wrong!  This field was definitely not for me.  To this day my husband (electronics engineer) enjoys lovingly mocking me every time we are having an IT problem at home.  He says “my wife, the IT specialist”.  But, I have to admit some things that I learned have definitely come in handy.  

And now, I find myself enjoying and being passionate about cooking.  I am in no way a professional cook, but I enjoy cooking and creating new recipes that my family can enjoy together.  They say “the best ingredient is love” and this is how I cook – unless I’m too tired, then I just throw some ingredients together and call it “dinner”.

My husband and Oreo are my most loyal taste testers and are happy to try just about anything.  Oreo being restricted to what he’s allowed, of course.  And, actually, my husband being restricted to what he’s allowed as well! 

Our teenage son and pre-teen daughter on the other hand are my toughest critics.  When they tell me that they liked what I made, then my chances are good.  

Why I Created This Blog:

I wanted to create this blog as an online source of my recipe collection.  Oftentimes I find myself trying to remember that recipe that I made that everyone liked, but I just could not repeat it.  Or, I find myself thinking about our next family or friend gathering and trying to come up with some creative recipes that they haven’t tried before.  So I started this blog. Not only has it become my source to collect my recipes, but I have finally found something that I am passionate about.  Coming up with recipes and taking pictures of food makes me excited!  I have a new found love for photography and try to make better pictures every time.  I hope you’ll notice a difference in my photography skills as I post new recipes 🙂

Our Recipes:

As a mom, I know how busy life can get. So, I usually post recipes that are easy to make, with ingredients that are easy to find at any grocery store. 
We try to eat healthy, so for the most part, I post healthy recipes.  I may use less salt and oil than some prefer!

Thank you!

Thank you for reading a bit about us and please visit often.  We will be posting new recipe ideas as we cook.
