Welcome! I’m Stephanie, daughter of the King of kings, wife of 11 years to Nathan, and homeschooling mom to my son (age 11) and daughter (age 9).

Just 12 short years ago, I had NO idea how to cook. None. I distinctly remember my husband teaching me how to scramble an egg when we were newlyweds in our first apartment. Yeah…I told you I didn’t have a clue. Thankfully, I did eventually learn how to cook and I even enjoy it now! 😉

One hope I have for this blog is that it will encourage you to cook. Because, if this spoiled, lazy girl (who didn’t even know how to scramble an egg when she got married) can cook completely from scratch for her family, then there is definitely hope for you too!

Another hope I have for this blog is that it will not only teach you to eat healthier, but that you will be able to do so while sticking to a modest budget. You see, I’m a bit of a frugalista. In fact, I got my start in the blogging world with the now well-known money-saving website Couponing101.com. So, I do know a thing or two about pinching pennies. 😉

In addition to loving food, I also love reading, running, learning about natural remedies, and simply being with my family.

Some of my favorite recipes:
