It's my SITSA day!!

Welcome SITSA'S!! 

Come on in, pull up a chair, and a fork... and get to eating! This is my humble blog. It has some home and children advice, some book reviews, but mostly FOOD! I've learned that I love to be in the kitchen. I love to create new recipes, and to feed others. Browse through my Recipe index to find something for your next party!

Have you heard of SITS? It's a fabulous site for women bloggers to spread the comment love. If you haven't been over there, go now! (Or when you're done reading here...)

So, welcome, and have fun looking around!

** There has been some confusion on the Caramel Apples! I used to have a small candy business, and made and sold those apples. You won't find the recipe here, but I can help with tips! 

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments! I will work on getting back to each of you this week!

  1. OK. Maybe a bad idea to take a look at this yummy blog when I'm hungry. I want to eat every single thing I've checked out. Not only are the recipies great, but the presentation is just amazing. Thank you for sharing.
    Congratulations on your SITS day!

  36. Congratulations on your SITS day! I have an unusual problem here at home - my husband and 3.5 year old son are both very good eaters - no picky-ness here. Sometimes I just run out of good ideas on creating menus that are new and exciting.

    I'm so glad that I've found your site. I can't wait to try the cream cheese pillows (yum!) and the mini meatloaves.

    I've bookmarked your site and I'll be back!

  42. Congrats on your SITS day! Always so glad to find another food-centered blog. I'm a little nervous about staying on our current diet while surfing through your site, but I do see that there is plenty of variety. Really excited about all the menu ideas. I do a lot of driving in my SAHM role and if I don't get dinner started early in the day, it's hard to pull it together. Always looking for inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi, just found you on SITS and have to say I'm so impressed that you are organized enough to plan meals in advance. Generally, I'm winging it at least 3-4 days each week. I have a lot to learn!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Just look at these photos! (The food, not the kids...though their photo here is pretty entertaining too!) This is the kind of blog that I can spend an entire day on, just browsing through delicious, beautiful food photos. Having your own caramel apple business sounds like a lot of fun (minus the stickiness, but that's just me!) Do you think you'll ever start selling them again?

  121. If I died and went to heaven I would wake up in your kitchen. The Mussaman Curry... the cake bites... the strawberry scones... the garlic naan bread (I've been looking for a good naan recipe!)... and so many more simply sound divine and reading through the recipes, maybe even I could do them.

    Excuse me while I drool all over your blog. I'll be back later with a mop to clean up.

    Happy SITS day!
