At the end of the day, you just want to put home cooked food on the table with a smile on everyone's face.
does this sound like you?
Be honest. Do you want to:
- Know how you can stop feeling so overwhelmed in the kitchen and start enjoying yourself while cooking from scratch?
- Create those cozy, memorable family dinners where everyone wants to stay at the table for a little longer (instead of your family sinking into their screens every night)?
- Be able to look at your monthly spend on groceries without cringing, once and for all?
- Stop the dinner struggle, banish making the same meals over and over again - and see your family's eyes light up when they eat your from-scratch dinner?
- Get organized with a clean kitchen set up, meal planning, shopping, meal prep and cooking - so you can actually pull off your homemade comfort food instead of only pinning it over and over again?
- Speaking of Pinterest... How many of the recipes you have pinned did you actually try? And... How many of those you tried actually made you and your family happy?
I believe you can ditch the overwhelm in the kitchen and make comforting meals an everyday possibility - even if time is short and your budget is small.

"I made these tonight and they were outstanding!! Thank you for sharing!"
"I just flipped my ratio of flour and breadcrumbs and it still came out awesome. I make it every week now! So easy and delicious!"
"I made these a few nights ago, and they’re definitely a keeper for oven-fried chicken! I don’t like to fry, just too much time and kind of a mess, but I never make great baked chicken, until now! I didn’t have garlic powder so I melted the butter in a bowl first and added the chopped garlic to it. Thanks for the great recipe!"
Imagine what it would be like if you actually enjoyed making dinner and could treat it like a breath of fresh air at the end of a long day.
Imagine coming into a clean kitchen for every meal prep - because you have the systems and organization in place that make clean up after cooking a breeze. It's so much easier to cook dinner when you don't have to do yesterday's dishes first!
How different would your life be if you had figured out a sanity-saving meal routine, the state of your fridge would stop haunting you in your worst nightmares and the thought of your grocery budget wouldn’t send your stress levels through the roof anymore.
If the food you made would get praise and approval from even the pickiest family member. If you could finally have those cozy gatherings around the dining table!
And now imagine if you could do all this with ingredients from the regular grocery store that don't cost a fortune - things you bought with a shopping list that makes sense, because you finally had a meal plan that works.

What others are saying:
"Made these today, my wife and I both thought they were exceptional. Delicious!!!!!! You described them perfectly, yet they still exceeded expectations. Thank you."
"Just wanted to let you know I did bake and freeze the leftovers. They were just as wonderful the next day. Spice flavor may have come out more. Thanks again for the keeper. I liked your page on Facebook and look forward to more of your recipes."
"This recipe is amazing. I make a lot of banana bread. Like… a lot. This is the best I’ve ever had. Tried all four ways & they are all delicious. Only recipe I will ever use again. Thank you!!"
so… how did i go from crying at the mere thought of meal planning (really, i cried) to be a thriving home cook?
If you would have stepped into my kitchen three years ago, you might have just walked right back out again. It was always a mess. Drawers and cabinets were stuffed with things I never touched. I went grocery shopping three times per week - yet we never had anything to eat and our budget was suffering. And cooking dinner? Usually made me cry.
I was so desperate to be that loving mom, gathering her family around the table every night - so I set out on a mission: I cleaned up my kitchen and set it up in a way that actually made sense. I learned about meal planning, freezer cooking, meal prep - and asked my classically European trained chef husband to teach me important knife skills and techniques. The results? Shocked even myself:
I finally make my vision happen, (almost) every single day. Cooking is a happy act, not a chore - and my kitchen has never seen an uncontrollably messy day again. Meal planning is a breeze and calling my family to dinner a joy - I have fallen head over heels with home cooking, and I can help you get there, too!
What others are saying:
"saw this recipe on a recent foodie crush post on time saving recipes for September, so glad I found your site, love your “voice” and yes love to save time with one-pot stuff, so thank you for the recipe and other links too!"
"I just made this recipe into muffins for breakfast. SO VERY delicious! They turned out perfectly and the muffins have a beautiful high dome. My kids and I are crazy over that topping.
I did use half white and half whole wheat flour cuz I didn’t have enough ww. I’m very happy with it."
