Hi! I’m Sam. I started this blog to keep track of all the recipes my family loves! Cooking has always been a part of my life. I grew up cooking with my mom, everything from quick weeknight dinners to dozens of Christmas cookies to fantastic “southern” Sunday dinners complete with homemade bread and dessert.

In 2014 I decided to up my cooking game and my New Year’s resolution was to try 52 new recipes in 2014. Even after making 3 new recipes on Dec 31 I still wasn’t able to meet my goal. This failure only fueled my determination, and I resolved again to try 52 new recipes in 2015. I finished 2015 with 69 new recipes!

My recipes are a mix of old family recipes and new favorites. I’m always on the lookout for new desserts that satisfy my chocolate cravings! Since I work full time, I need to get dinner on the table quickly once I get home, so menu planning and food prep are the most valuable tools in my kitchen.
