100 Posts and a Pampered Chef Give Away!

I started this blog because I like to cook and eat. My children moved away and were calling me on a daily basis for recipes. One of my daughters suggested I start a food blog as a way to share family favorite recipes, then I wouldn't have to give the same recipe out over and over. I laughed at her idea, I'm not very computer smart. With the encouragement of my kids this blog was born.
I believe in eating dinner together as a family. I also know that families are busy. I have tried to combine busy families and good food. I use fresh ingredients, simple recipes and probably too much butter and heavy whipping cream.
I enjoy sharing my recipes and other little snippets of my good life. I have finally hit 100 posts! Leave a comment on this post and one lucky winner will win a $25.00 Pampered Chef  Gift Certificate! I love Pampered Chef, my kitchen is full of fun, quality Pampered Chef tools.
Thanks for sharing this blog journey with me, I enjoy feedback and am happy to answer questions and give wanted or unwanted advice. I will pick a winner on July 5th at 10 PM, I have more recipes to share so stay tuned!


I can't wait to make this simple Caprese Salad, Amber made it for us last summer. It must be made with just picked garden tomatoes, fresh basil and fresh mozzarella cheese. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and fresh ground pepper. It is delish!

Congratulations on 100 posts. I stumbled across your blog and I'm glad I did. I need ideas for food I can make for my family that uses fresh ingredients. We're following a special diet, so my options are limited and I need inspiration!

Congrats on 100 posts!I love reading your blog. There are always such tasty treats, and food that I can actually make! (I'm no Julia Child, unfortunately) And lets be honest... Is there such a thing as too much butter and whipping cream? I think not. Thanks for sharing your family recipes with us. My family has loved them.

We also like this little scrumptious treat with a little balsalmic vinegar! One of our favorites! I've got my Pampered Chef order all ready...so I'll just wait till the 4th when you pick my name!

Congrats on 100 posts! I've recently been introduced to your blog by your daughter Jill (who I adore) and I have loved everything I've tried so far. They are simple, easy and yummy which is what I love best...and why I love Pampered Chef too...their tools make everything even more simple and easier.
