Hi there! I’m Vanessa. So glad you found me. Welcome to my tiny kitchen behind your screen.

I am your every day mom, wife, sister and self-taught cook. I have been cooking and baking for years and decided to share what I make with you. I hope to inspire others by my experiences with the recipes I make and learn from you, as well.

I was born and raised in Florida and now reside in Texas so I’m definitely a southern gal. I love to make all sorts of dishes but desserts are my favorite. I will apologize now if you find more dessert recipes on my blog than anything else.

Move the slider in the middle of the pictures right to see Florida, and left to see Texas! 🙂

I have a family of five. My wonderful husband who is always there to support and stand beside me in whatever adventure I take. My three kids ages 20, 18, and 16 who are my best critics. They will certainly let me know when they like something and of course, when they don’t.

I also have an adorable rescue furbaby that you can always find at my feet while I’m cooking. I like to think that she just wants to be near me but I think it’s more about the things that drop and occasional handouts.

Take a look around. I hope you find something you like. My site just launched on Nov 1st of this year (2021) so new content will be added each week. Please feel free to comment or reach out to me if you have any questions or want to share any of your recipes.

Thanks for visiting,
