First Post!!

Hello!  Welcome to my kitchen ramblings!  

I have been thinking about doing this blog for a while, and finally have the guts to do it.  I hope it doesn't bore you too much, and if you find a recipe you would like to share, let me know!  

A little bit of background... 

I have recently gotten (back) into cooking, and want to try to improve on my skills and repertoire of recipes.  I can remember in middle school wanting to become a chef, but then in high school, I chose a different path:  CHEMISTRY*insert music of doom, death and distruction here*  Yeah, similar and yet not so much......  But now that I'm a wife and mother, I want to try to cook good meals for my boys.  It can be tricky to do this, since both the hubbs and my son are picky eaters, but I am slowly figuring out the tricks.  I won't say that every meal is balanced and healthy, but I'm working to at least keep them fed and happy (the easiest way to the male's heart <3 ).  It is also difficult to do this since I work 40+hrs a week outside the home.  There isn't much time to make elaborate meals, especially when feeding my two boys, but I'm working to figure out easy go-to meals that can be delicious.  I try to do better meals on the weekends since I have more time, but sometimes the motivation isn't there.  I also have the challenge of not having a dishwasher, therefore my goal is to use as few dishes as possible so I have less mess to clean up!

I will aim to post once a week (likely on weekends), since that's when I have the most time to do anything, cooking included.  I'm not ashamed to post meal failures, as we all have to learn from our mistakes.  It's discouraging, however life is a learning experience.  As long as we take that knowledge and move forward, we can only improve.  I'm sure even the most famous of chefs have bombed a meal or two...

Thank you for reading!  This weekend's post will come once the little guy is snuggled up in bed with his stuffed animals.


P.S.  For those of you who didn't know me before I got married, I'm going by KB instead of KM because that's the nickname I received in either high school or college.  Some friends have always called me that, even to this day.  So KB I will always be :o)


  1. Looking forward to following your blog! I'm going to add it to my recipes file/feed :)
