Welcome! My name is Deanna & I have a passion for cooking & hosting. I’ve been known (on occasion) to get carried away turning a simple get together into an elaborate affair. Don’t worry! My intention is to give you simple, approachable recipes and if you WANT to go off the deep end, you’re more than welcome. I’ll probably show you how to do that as well.

Anyway, you won’t find 1000 words & a Vlog chronicling my life on each post. Maybe I’ll share a short story, maybe I won’t share anything. Why? Because I don’t have a lot to say and you’re here for recipes. If you’re anything like me, you skip all the fluff and head right to the instructions. So why not just give the people what they want?
