About Me

     Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Melanie and I'm a teacher that longs to be a cook in her second life. How I would love to just create scrumptious meals and goodies and blog about it.That's the life. Seriously though, I love to cook and bake. I've had this obsession since childhood when I would bake cakes and cookies for my brothers not to mention preparing dinner most nights. My bro's were a very appreciative audience and so I continued to peruse my way through many a cookbook trying out new recipes on a regular basis.  I now have another appreciative audience, my husband and two kids. They now get to reap the benefits of my cooking/baking.

    This blog is intended to be fun and to share some of my friends and families recipes or those recipes that I find on Pinterest. I'm not a professional chef I just cook for the pure enjoyment. Since I'm a Minnesota girl some of my recipes will be a reflecting of the good old Midwest. Can't take the Minnesota Girl out of me.  So please enjoy the food and feel free to leave comments, but remember this site is for fun so keep your comments light and your fork ready.
