.About Me.

My name is Christina and I'm a 20something SAHM mom. Before I became a mom, I was a 5th grade teacher. I loved my job, but I love being home with my daughter even more. I'm happily married to an Emergency Medicine doctor. We are high school sweethearts and have been together for over thirteen years. You might read about me complaining about his residency schedule; being the wife of a doctor is tough sometimes, but we got through college, studying for the MCAT, and medical school. I know we will get through residency too!

I started this blog about four years ago when we moved from our hometown of Miami, Florida to Ann Arbor, Michigan. I didn't have a job, didn't have any friends, and was pretty down in the dumps. I started reading blogs, in particular, food blogs. I decided to start my own because I love to cook. And bake. I'm definitely no expert; I've only been cooking for about five years. Before I got married, I vowed to learn how to cook. I only knew how to make scrambled eggs! I started watching the Food Network every day after work and I fell in love. I like to eat well and I like to enjoy what I eat. I try my best to steer clear of prepackaged foods and make many things from scratch and use fresh, whole ingredients as often as I can.

I started this blog to share recipes that we enjoyed. Now that we are parents, my blog has started to change. I don't have as much time as I used to in the kitchen! I'm sharing more and more about our lives and the ups and downs of parenting. I hope you'll come along for the ride, while feasting your eyes on some good food in between!

Thanks for visiting!
