Hi there, I’m Tandy!
I am a wife, part time blogger, and busy mom of 3 children(ages 3,5,6). Very chaotic at times at our house, but I love every minute of it. After High School I decided to pursue a dream of many….to become a chef! I made the choice to go to Le Cordon Bleu of Culinary Arts Miami. Since as long as I can remember I was always skimming cookbooks, magazines, and experimenting with recipes. School put the icing on the cake and confirmed my love for food and cooking. After I finished my 12 month schooling in Miami, and 3 month externship in Boulder Colorado, I decided to move back to my hometown where I grew up-Iowa! Back in Iowa, I married my high school sweetheart and ran the family restaurant, catered, and offered fresh home cooked freezer meals to busy families. After we started our family, the hours where just way too much for this mom! I found spending more time at work then with my kids was not a good fit for me. I gave it all up and went to working part time for my dad on the farm. Since then, I put my passion for food on the back burner while my husband and I grew our family of 5. My youngest is now 3 (and finally sleeping through the night a little better-I’m sure some of you can relate?), so I decided instead of dreaming and waiting for the right moment to get back into my love for food (is there ever a right moment or enough time?), to quit waiting and wondering and JUST DO IT-so I started my very own blog in Spring of 2015!
My mission is to…
Provide you with quick meals and tips for the kitchen to help make your life easier so you have more time for what really matters in life. So bear (not bare- for all you peeps who caught my oops on facebook) with me on my new journey of blogging. As I keep my family first, I will do my best to post often and answer any questions you might have. So grab your cup of coffee and a seat around my kitchen table and let’s chat…….
