Hi there. I’m Christine! Welcome to my food blog. I cook and share easy, no-fail comfort food recipes, photograph all the food, and generally try to live a healthier, more balanced life. 🙂 I also author a low carb and gluten-free website called Holistic Yum,

I’ve spent the last 5 years building this food blog into what you see today. It all started with being laid off from my financial services job, an industry I had worked in for 25 years. Unable to find a new job, I went back to one of my first loves – cooking from scratch. I try to make clean food recipes when I can, while still keeping it family friendly. Like a lot of people, I struggle with weight and health issues and have turned to healthier eating and portion control to help solve them.

Over the years, I’ve put an emphasis on simple. My recipes don’t call for extravagant ingredients or fussy foods from specialty stores, but the flavors must be BOLD! Must Love Home’s recipe ideas use readily found mostly pantry ingredients and have easy to follow instructions.  My favorite ingredients are definitely spices, almonds and cheese and favorite recipes are Mexican and Asian-style dishes.

On a personal level – I love to learn new things and push myself to improve, whether it’s photography, cooking, dieting or just keeping things organized. Since my grandson was born, I push even harder so I can keep up with him!🙂

What you will see here are solutions for the daily question of “what’s for dinner”. We all want food that our families will actually eat and even enjoy! There are quick 30-minute meal ideas, weekend cooking recipes for comfort foods made entirely from scratch, freezer meals, slow-cooker dishes, ready made foods doctored up with more tasty ingredients and inspired ideas for stocking the pantry. 

I hope my website helps you find the answers you’re looking for… and welcome to my kitchen!
