Welcome! I’m Renee. I’m not your average “young mommy blogger.” In fact, you can say that I am “well seasoned.” I’ve gone from Mom to Nana in what feels like the blink of an eye.
I’ve always loved entertaining, whether it’s hosting a party, a large family BBQ, or simply a dinner for two. I believe that hospitality and entertaining can be effortless with easy recipes and simple tablescapes.
Traditions are extremely important to our family and I believe that the meals we’ve shared are a huge part of our traditions. I’m not a chef and I’ve had no formal training. What I do have is years of experience getting dinner on the table through the many seasons of my life.
Many of the recipes that you’ll find throughout my blog have been passed down from generation to generation. Others have been shared between family and friends. Some have been “googled” and others are Pinterest finds. A few are travel inspired and some are straight out of cookbooks. Some of the recipes will be from scratch, others will be semi-homemade, and others I hope will serve as an idea or inspiration to help you get dinner on your table.
Cooking and serving others in the comfort of my home truly brings me joy!
I hope you’ll visit often and that my recipes and entertaining tips help you find the joy in your everyday! And who knows, maybe one of the recipes will become a part of your family traditions!
And just for fun, a few random facts about me:
- I’m married to my best friend. 39 years and still going strong!
- We have three grown daughters, three wonderful son-in-laws, and we are blessed with seven of the most beautifully perfect grand babies!
- I love my dishes and glassware! I have multiple sets and love using them all! Is there such a thing as dishware anonymous?
- I love driving big cars, sedans just aren’t my thing.
- I drink way too much coffee. Like all day, everyday!
- I’ve lived in the same town of Santa Cruz, CA, my entire life. So has my husband, in fact, we went to kindergarten together.

And, I’m also Nana, to a little blog project that I’ve started when my grand daughter, Gigi Bean was 5 years old. I hope you’ll check it out! We’ll be doing some cooking & baking, maybe an occasional craft, all while having fun with her American Girl dolls. Gigi is eight now, and extremely busy with school, gymnastics, sewing, crafts, tennis, baking, friends, and family. Hopefully, we’ll get back to blogging together soon!
