I am Lisa, a thirty-something-year old “bride” living in the Jackson, Mississippi, metro area. By day I am a wife, mother, and freelance writer. By night, I am a cook, amateur photographer, and food blogger.
Growing up, it was my Dad that loved cooking. I have memories as a small child of my Dad pushing a kitchen chair up to the counter so I could stand beside him and help him prepare whatever it was we were having for dinner that night. We used to pretend that we were chefs in a five-star restaurant and my mother was a very important customer. I credit my willingness to try new and unusual recipes to the adventurous streak my father had with his cooking. Sometimes they were great and sometimes they weren’t, but that was the fun part.
In 2006, I officially became a bride when I married my wonderful and devastatingly handsome college sweetheart. We are the parents of two boys – Big Brother (aka “Little Tot” in earlier posts) and Little Brother. They definitely keep life interesting!
I started this blog because it combines my biggest passions: writing, cooking, and photography. The recipes you see here are what I serve my family. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it. I love getting feedback so please, please, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think (as long as it’s nice). I also love connecting with readers on social media, so check me out on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
