My name is Jeanne, and I’m a full time, work from home wife and mom. Meet my husband Gene…
…and although it may sound corny, he really is my best friend & true love!
This is our teenage son Nick…
…he’s an amazing son, & we’re so proud of the young man that he is! It sure makes our job as parents a heck of a lot easier!
We are natives of Tucson, AZ, U.S. which is a wonderful place to live.
I’m the creative type by nature, I love to cook, sew, quilt, craft, garden & draw…
What can you expect from my blog? Mostly, I love to share recipes that I create for my family, but you’ll also see some recipe reviews, the occasional sewing project & tutorial, with some thoughts & inspiration thrown in there for good measure!
Just for fun, here’s some random facts about yours truly…Enjoy!
I’m normally pretty quiet & a little reserved…that’s right…I blog, go figure!
I believe in rescuing or adopting pets instead of “buying” them.
We are fur-parents to our greyhound, Buddy Roo & cat Mini (Mini likes to blog with me, her posts pop up from time to time).
I’m the youngest of 5 – there are 4 of us sisters & 1 brother, & I consider all of them my besties, I’m so lucky. Our first names all start with “J” & our middle names rhyme…Jan Ellen, Jill Helen, Joy Erin, Jack Allen, Jeanne Lynn.
My snacking weakness is anything that has sweet & salty combined like kettle korn.
Home is my favorite place – I love being with my family…and in my slipper socks.
Buttered spaghetti with garlic & parm – that’s my comfort food. Gene will make it for me when I have a crummy day 🙂
I’ve never met a creative project I didn’t like..ha!
I LOVE to bake bread. (Dr. Atkins & I have never been that close).
I enjoy down to Earth people…people that make me laugh are the best!
My favorite movies are Christmas Vacation, Vacation, Three Amigos, Fletch/Fletch Lives, Funny Farm, (love me some Chevy Chase!) Harry Potter, Meet the Parents, Godfather I & II…Did I mention almost anything Chevy Chase? Oh, & I adore watching thrillers.
My favorite TV shows are Breaking Bad, Dexter, Parenthood, Walking Dead…old TV favorites would be Bewitched & Andy Griffith.
Don’t judge – I follow some reality shows – Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Gypsy Sisters & Kendra.
The cook I like & relate to most is Melissa D’Arabian.
Favorite colors are Purple, Blue & Aqua
I believe the most powerful tool is a positive attitude – happiness starts within!
Please keep in touch, I’d love to know what creative things you’re up to!
