Reason for this Blog

What's the inspiration behind this online cookbook? Well, three things really.

1. My Computer. It is getting old and I'm not sure how much longer it'll last. "But what about all my recipes?!," I thought. Many of my good ones are saved on my computer, and though I've printed them out, I wanted a way to have them in electronic form...hence, the creation of this blog.

2. My Husband. He is from Australia. His homeland is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities, so he is used to GOOD FOOD. Like, really good food. Fresh herbs, nice meat, nothing out of a box (most of the time!). I know that one way to his heart is through his tummy...hence, the name of this blog.

3. My Daughters. Recipes on paper can be short-lived in a house with toddlers. I really like the idea of having an online cookbook for them to use when they are older. It'll always be here. No getting torn, eaten, or wet!

These recipes are family traditions. Ones I use all the time, and my family loves. Enjoy!

I love having many of my favorite family recipes online as well, often times I or a family member has been on vacation and wanted to make one and just needed the internet to find it! Plus you can turn it into a cookbook for your girls one day using wouldn't that be cool?

Yes, that happened just last week on vacation. I wanted to make Lazy Daisy Cake, but the recipe was in my paper cookbook back home. And there was nothing like it was a bummer. I will definitely turn it into a cookbook for the girls. Maybe when they get married?!
