Finally Doing This!

After A LOT of prodding by well meaning friends and family, I am excited to start blogging. My bestie Ashley keeps telling me that the ways that I cook, shop and pull recipes out of mid-air are something special. I normally brush off her compliments, but, just in case you agree with her, I thought that I would create a blog where I can tell you a little bit about what I love to do!

First: I love playing with this boy everyday! He mostly enjoys what I feed him [except for the times that he fake gags when I place something undesirable in front of him] as evidenced in this ketchup licking picture.

Second: I love my dreamboat hubby, obvi! He even helps me at cooking competitions. I focus on the taste and he focuses on the aesthetics. With our powers combined, we placed second in both the judges' and people's choice categories of the Denver Avocado Takedown!

Third: I love food and I'm kind of a cheapskate! Thus, a lot of this blog will feature pantry-purger recipes and on-a-budget menus. Stay tuned for more!


  1. Oh Kricket! You are being such a good girl right now I cant even tell you!!
