I’m a software developer by trade and a stay-at-home mom who loves to cook.

Cooking with a little one at home has morphed from making baby food puree once a week, to fully planning out meals that my family can enjoy together. Now that my daughter is a headstrong toddler, mealtime can be a bit more challenging, but our family has always managed to make healthy foods & social mealtimes a priority.

Through this blog, I hope to share with you many of the recipes that have worked for us, in addition to tips for growing a happy, healthy and well-fed family.

My Cooking Philosophy

  • Using healthy and wholesome foods whenever possible and to cook with little fuss – 30 min of active cooking time, max.
  • I don’t have the time to read through pages of recipe instructions (and I’m assuming you might not too! ) so I will try to keep it short and sweet.
