Food brings people together on many different levels.
It’s nourishment of the soul and body;
It’s truly love…
~~Giada De Laurentiis~~

And food is what has brought all of us together…
I’m so happy you’re here!

PrudyI’m Prudy, and welcome to my little world of cooking, and baking, musings, and day to day life…

I live in Wheatfield, New York, which is about ten minutes out of Niagara Falls. It is definitely farm country, and a good place to live…and it is where I raised my three kids. I love it here.

Let me start out by saying that I am not a professional chef…and I have never attended culinary school. All of the recipes you will find here, have either been created mostly by me…some from my family…and some from my friends. I am known to have my face buried in cookbooks, magazines, and any recipe source that is available! I will always give credit where credit is due…and most of the time, if you see another blogger’s recipe that I’ve made and shared on butter, basil, and breadcrumbs, you can be sure that I’ve already contacted that blogger, and gotten his/her blessing to do so.

For the most part, I like to keep most of my recipes quick and easy, with simple ingredients that aren’t out of this world impossible to find, and most of the time I won’t use ingredients that your family won’t even try. I’m not above using prepared ingredients either, so be prepared for some cheats and shortcuts too!

There are times, though, that there will be a recipe that is a little long and drawn out… but in the end, I’ll always promise you that it’s worth it. Save those for days when you have the time to fuss and primp!

The kitchen is where I am happiest…. If anything, it’s where you’ll find me in complete relaxation mode. It’s where I spend most of my time creating…cooking and baking…. winning and failing. And yes, there are plenty of fails, but that’s what it’s all about! We learn from our burnt cookies and carry on…and once in a while, you might see a fail or two posted on Instagram!

And in the end, it doesn’t matter if it’s a fail or a win… it’s my passion. I love to cook.

And it’s cooking that brings me to this moment…and this blog… and you. It’s our love of food and cooking that has brought us from all parts of the world together…
I’m so thrilled that you are here…to share food and recipes…stories…and friendship…

I look forward to many more recipes and stories! I knew that I would love this blog, I just didn’t realize how much I would love it….and I have you to thank.
Thank you so much for being here…it means the world to me!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I’m only an email away…
