Ruth's Intro

I'm Ruth, a homeschooling mother of 7 wonderful children. Jessica is my oldest child, and when she had the idea to start this blog I thought it was a great idea. It seems that I often cook the same meals over and over, and it gets monotonous for my family and me. I'm hoping this venture will help inspire me to try new recipes and bring back the joy that I once had for cooking and baking. I love my family, and I desire to be a better mother to my children and a better wife to my husband. One way I can do this is to be a better cook! :-)

Okay, Jessica, Julie, and any future team members---bring on the recipes!

p.s. I could also use some help with getting some flower gardens started in the front yard!

Jessica's Intro

I'm Jessica, a newly married wife and homemaker. Right now in my life, grocery shopping, meal planning, and cooking is a new and exciting adventure. I enjoy cooking, and because I love taking pictures of the foods I make and exchanging recipes, I thought it would be lots of fun have a cooking blog with my mom, sis, and mother-in-law to share and learn more about cooking, homemaking, menu planning and gardening. (This is also easiest way to steal all the good family recipes!)

Other interests of mine include gardening, home-decorating, and sewing. My sewing blog can be found at
