Well hello there, welcome to my kitchen! As for the formalities, my name is Jamie, very nice to meet you. I’m just a typical mother of 4, bi-weekly runner, amateur photographer and travel enthusiast who just so happens to enjoy being in the kitchen as well (which my family doesn’t seem to mind at all). We’re from Arizona, but currently living in New Zealand where it has been a fun challenge learning to adapt and cook with the different ingredients available here. I originally began this blog in hopes of one day creating a family recipe book for my daughter to take to college. I am by no means a professional chef or photographer, but the recipes on this site are tried and true family favorites that I hope you will enjoy as well. Thanks for stopping by!
