About Me

My name is Rachel. I’m a wife, a mother of 3.5 year old twin boys, a professional laundry folder, a skilled toy picker-upper, a healer of boo boo’s, a fort builder and a famous chef with my own show on the cooking network. Well, that last part may not be entirely true but a girl can dream, can’t she?

I decided to start a blog to share recipes I find online or recipes I create on my own or anything else that relates to cooking and sharing my love for cooking with my family and friends.  I’m the type of person that even when I’m relaxing, I’m always doing something.  Even if we’re just watching a movie, I’m usually on my computer searching for new recipes or looking up fun crafts to do with the kids.   I think a blog is the perfect outlet to feed my need to always be busy.  What better topic to write about than food and cooking, two of my favorite things!

Fortunately for me, my love for cooking goes hand in hand with my husband’s love for eating.  I’m quite certain my two young sons, Anthony & Vincent, are following in their dad’s footsteps when it comes to eating.  They are great little eaters and love to try new things and are the best little food critics!  They have actually told me I am “the best cooker in the whole world”.  That is a title I do not take lightly 🙂

I love taking a recipe and adding something new to it or putting my own spin on it.  Sometimes the addition of just one ingredient can transform a recipe into something new and exciting.

I think part of the reason I love trying new recipes is because my husband, Greg, gets genuinely excited when I create something new that we’ve never had before.  He’s an adventurous eater, so pretty much anything I make, he’ll be all for trying!  It definitely  is more rewarding to cook when you have someone who really appreciates all the hard work and energy you put into each delicious bite! I think Greg actually may have done a fist pump after taking a bite of a new dish I created the other night!  That’s what I call instant gratification!

I hope you enjoy reading my blog and trying out some of the recipes that I enjoy cooking!
