Hey there. My name is Mel and I'm a mother of seven children living in the Midwest. I LOVE to cook and I equally love passing down that knowledge to my children. This blog is an online cookbook I am preparing for my children so that when they launch, all of their favorite family recipes are in one easily accessible place. They'll be able to recreate their childhood food favs in their own homes with their own families. While blessing my children, I thought I'd also bless others by sharing my kitchen with yours!
