As the creator of Must Love Home, it feels like I already know you. You love cooking simple dishes for people you love then enjoying it over a bottle of wine and conversation at the kitchen table. You love creating a cozy and casual home, where friends can put their feet up and your kitchen is your sanctuary. You would love to have a brand new kitchen, but what you really need are creative ideas to give a little love to the one you already have. You want to live a more simple and casual life, while squeezing every last moment out of it.
I put an emphasis on casual. We don’t need extravagant ingredients or fussy foods from specialty stores to create a delicious meal. We need budget-friendly recipe ideas that use readily found ingredients and have easy to follow instructions. We need to learn and teach that expensive food is not always better and that having money left over each month is not about depriving ourselves, but planning for the future.
What you will see here are solutions for the daily dilemma of what to make for dinner that your family will actually eat (and enjoy), money tips like how to stretch your grocery dollars in creative ways, as well as other simple recipes. There are quick 30 minute meal ideas, recipes for comfort foods made entirely from scratch, slow-cooker dishes, ready made foods stepped up a bit and inspired ideas for stocking your pantry as well as some DIY for your kitchen. I’m all about spending money on the things I need or find irresistibly beautiful (think flowers) and eliminating spending on things I don’t.
This creative space is totally for you. So Welcome Home!
