Welcome to my kitchen!

Hop on the counter or pull up a chair!

The most valuable, precious things I’ve learned in life didn’t necessarily come from school, college or work but instead…
…from the kitchen!







Famous TV shows circulate in it.



Friendships were made and broken.

Of course, where there’s food, the holidays & birthdays will bring them all together.

(always a grinch, a pet & a cutie pie!)

Our kids eat, run, climb and crawl through it.

Marriages & divorces begin and end in them.


Not sure why, but the kitchen goes great with calls & meetings.

Yummy recipes come to life…

…along with yucky & burnt ones.

And our pets show us how much they love the kitchen too… if we let them.

Whatever people experience in life, the kitchen usually sees and hears it all!
Years & years of looking into the eyes of many souls, I acquired great knowledge from kitchen talks, and in turn, taught others who wanted to listen & learn as well; all from a little room we call a kitchen.
Now with many subjects to share, I’m inspired to help with some tasty insight from my kitchen to yours………

…..even if it doesn’t make sense at all !

Close up

Let’s see, about me; I’m a great Kitchen listener, adventure seeker, animal loving’, secret keeping, coffee sippin’, wine tastin’, optimistic, gun shooting, God fearing woman who loves working out, nature & hiking!  Getting old is not on my radar.

I was told I should write a book so I finally gave in and I’m working on that plus writing articles & sharing what I’ve learned straight from my kitchen!

I don’t like to cook anymore (even though I do at times) but I love watching my husband whip it all up because he loves to cook!  (Happy wife 🙂 )  I do like picking things right out of the garden and eating them straight (unless of course there are signs of bird-poo on them)!!

My husband works from home and we are farm owners too.  I don’t always stay in the kitchen; I’m pretty hands on when it comes to getting down & dirty in the garden and with the animals!

Proud to say I’m a Military daughter, granddaughter & mom.  🙂

I take a lot of pictures!!!  (Just wanted to throw my pics hobby in there.)

I earned some serious stripes and a few badges while raising my 4 children as a single mom for many years… Success!
Toughest yet Best experience of my life!

I love, love, love kids; mine and everyone else’s too. I have a wonderful daughter-in-law now & others that may join our family as well one day.  🙂 Hate being an “empty-nester” but I will say my kids have become awesome adults and we’re still super close,  which is a (good) mothers’ dream!  🙂

I was a Realtor & a Broker’s Assistant most of my adult life and then became a Broker Associate…
Great career but when the market went down by 2010, I decided to change my direction.  (I’ll never forget those who helped this single mother  during some tough times though.  😀 )
Then my 2nd childhood came…
I went back to college to become a Surgical Technologist after my kids were grown and walked away with a 3.92 GPA!  The brain still works; still got it!    Unfortunately, when we moved the farm to Gods real country (Narnia I call it), the hospitals are too far away to drive everyday, so here I am; with you, in my kitchen feeling totally satisfied, successful & looking for new adventures everyday!!

Not sure what tomorrow will bring but I’ll start each day in the kitchen to find out!
