Thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! I’m Alison, a foodie living in the suburbs of Chicago, with two daughters & the funniest man I’ve ever met.
I started this blog when I realized that I was rushing through day-to-day activities with my oldest daughter (then an only child), and I wanted to make everyday moments more fun & memorable, on a budget. Let me tell you, nothing makes you more accountable for your daily activities than a blog!
Over the years, I’ve realized that I love to write about food, so you’ll most often see recipes posted. The recipes reflect my life, and what we’re eating, so they’re generally uncomplicated and relatively frugal.
I’m a self-professed “lazy” cook, and proud of it! I share my cooking and household hacks & tips all the time, and love putting together quick & simple meals for my family.
Want a peek at my most popular recipes? Check out the best-of-the-best, right now, including this favorite, that has topped my site for years. Click on the recipes below!
Pour yourself a drink, tuck into some tasty recipes, and let’s dish! Happy to have you here.
