About Us

Hi! We’re Diane and Jamie. We are a mom and daughter duo from Central Wisconsin, where good food is the center of almost any gathering!

We enjoy spending time together … especially when it’s time spent in the kitchen!  This website is for anyone looking for simple and easy recipes that will taste great!

Diane – aka “Mom”

Throughout my 65 years, I’ve collected many good recipes from the good old fashioned farm cooks in my life; my mother, mother-in-law, grandmothers, aunts, friends and neighbors.  When people ask me how I got to be such a good cook, I always say that it is just a matter of having good recipes and quality ingredients (although I have had to learn how to “make do” from time to time as well!).

When my daughter Jamie asked me to help with this project, I was excited to help gather, preserve, and share some of our favorite family recipes.  I’ve enjoyed reflecting on all the memories made in the garden, kitchen, and around the dining room table!




Some of my favorite moments are spent with friends and family, preparing and enjoying the delicious food we cook together.  Learning to cook and bake, mostly from my mom and my grandmothers, I now enjoy sharing my love of cooking (and eating) with my husband and our 6 children.

My hope is that, in sharing some of our favorite recipes, others are inspired to spend more time in the kitchen, while enjoying more quality family time too!
