Helping you find the joy in cooking for your family and friends, whether two people or twenty.
- You dream of meal planning and organization that keeps your week on track.
- You long for the family dinners that don’t require obscure ingredients and complicated steps.
- You dream of gathering friends and family together – not just around Christmas and Thanksgiving, but year-round.
- You want to learn how to host a party or holiday that doesn’t stress you out.
- You crave unity, memories, tradition and a sense of connection.
What I believe:
I believe you can gather a group of people for an upscale dinner party, holiday meal, or simple cookout without ever having done it before.
I believe you can be at peace around the dinner table with your family, using recipes with simple ingredients and instructions.
I believe you can enjoy preparing a meal for your family and friends at any time of the year.
I believe you can connect with your loved ones and create memories and traditions that will be passed down for generations.
I believe with more connection, we can be happier beings.
About Anna Kate
My earliest memory is sitting at my Nana’s kitchen table, eating a home-cooked meal. I remember helping her prepare dinner on many occasions and the love and care she used with every meal she made.
I hope to pass along that same love and care to you – my reader. You see, she didn’t follow fancy recipes (or any recipe at all, really), she didn’t have a fancy kitchen, and she didn’t have time for a lot of complicated steps and ingredients. She made it work with what she had.
I am proud to say she has passed those traits down through the family tree. I rarely follow a recipe, I don’t have a fancy kitchen or tools, and I certainly don’t have the time for complicated steps and ingredients.
But, one thing is for certain: I show my love through cooking for family and friends.
Sharing the Love…
There was a time when hosting a large party or meal that made my head hurt, but through hard lessons and practice, I was able to find my comfort zone.
Now, let me guide you as you assemble family dinners or prepare a holiday meal. Here, you will find encouragement, practical advice, and delicious recipes to share.
Let’s take the fear out of cooking and rediscover joy!
