Finally, a 2010 New Year's Resolution.

After several years of pursuing an idea of starting a cooking show that featured my twin daughters, Angelina & Aubrey, I have decided to take the advice of my sister and friends and begin a blog.  New Year's day came upon me this year and I hadn't made any resolutions, but now I have one - this blog.  I'm not going to lie - I was truly inspired (like many of you) by the movie Julie & Julia.   I wondered what I could write about that anyone would find interest in.  Obviously food is something that is written about all the time, but I think I may be able to bring a fresh twist to it.

Many of my friends are so busy that it becomes a daunting task to come up with menu ideas, not to mention the price of groceries in this dwindling economy.  I have found that by planning the month's meals in advance and getting the groceries all at once, you can save a ton of money!  So, I will take the hard part away and leave only the job of getting the groceries and cooking the meals.  Each month I will post a menu, shopping list and links to the recipes.  Then, hopefully, several times during the month, I will post a video of the girls and I cooking some of the meals together.  This should add some comic relief as they are 4 yrs. old.

Keep an eye open for January's menu - coming very soon!  I just have to have my husband, Jeremy, show me how to get the files on here.


  1. Love the backround,(bird/blue/yellow ;)) also love the idea....and that you will be helping us less fortunate (in the kitchen ) people!! cant wait to see videos!!lol! oh and we need a gourmet kitchen photo shoot for your profile photo......maybe the girls could help you with desserts as I think I would have a heart attack cooking wityh 4 yr olds!;) just a thought??

  2. This is great! I'm so glad you're doing it. And don't worry about where your inspiration came from, everyone's great ideas come from some inspiration and this is such a good idea! A month meals! So cool! I hope you get a movie out of this!
