About Me

mrs_piemontHey, I’m Liz!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I live in the burbs of Chicago with my husband and 2 young boys. I work as a pediatric cardiac nurse, but I’m a food enthusiast and family gal at heart. I love thrifting, photography and trying new fun activities around Chicago.

As I’m sure you can relate, life is busy. The one thing that centers our family after a very busy day of work, preschool or growth spurts is sitting around the table for a meal. I also love all the traditions food can hold for families. I remember eating corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day every year or the “dog food” dip at family parties. Sometimes it’s about what that food reminds you of that tastes the best!

My hope is that after you leave this page, you find some staple recipes to use in your weekly menu. Maybe you find some ideas for your kid’s lunch to relieve your decision fatigue. How to meal prep, easy kitchen tips or at recipes for at home date night, we’ll cover it all. Cooking or baking just might bring out the *little foodie* in you. Thanks for stopping by!
