My Story




pic22I have been married to my best friend, Dennis for 30 years.  We have an 18 year old daughter, who just started college. Yay for us that she decided to live at home and commute to Cal State University San Marcos. We also have a spunky, two year old German Shepard named Remington, he could play all day … and does.  There is nothing I love more than entertaining in my home and cooking for others. Sharing my table with friends and family feeds my soul with so much heartfelt joy. So many great conversations come together at the dinner table and great memories are made there.  I enjoy spending time in my backyard flower garden, walking for exercise and reading. I belong started and belong to three book clubs. One decided not to read anymore, so we are now known as “social club”. I look forward to my daily walk and I love to decorate. Ironing once a week for two hours allows me to catch up on my favorite cooking shows and watch my favorite celebrity t.v. chefs (Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa), Ree Drummond (the Pioneer Woman), and Nancy Fuller (Farmhouse Rules) I enjoy learning from them all)!  I hope to pass on what I learn from these amazing women.  I’ll always mention in my blog who inspired a certain recipe. There will be many, however, that I come up with on my own.





  1. Hi Kris, your favorite TV personalities are mine too. Love to cook and will enjoy your blog, very nice, take care Joan Beguelin


    • Hi Joan! Thank you so much. There is nothing I love more than cooking for friends and family. It brings me great joy to share this love with everyone. I’m glad you’re enjoying. I’m hoping to post something new in the next day or so. -Kris


    • Of course I remember you! And your boys and daughter. I’m so happy you are enjoying my blog. My Mom said you and her ran into each other a couple months ago. She was really happy to see you. It’s so funny, I haven’t had a chance to watch all my shows this summer. Once Kylie’s back in school, I’ll be less busy and can keep up. :). Have a great day, Judy!!


  2. Hi Kris!! I love all your recipes! It is wonderful to see you share your passion with everyone. Your love for cooking and people shines through in your every word/post/blog! Looking forward to more of your amazing dishes.


    • Thank you so much, LaRae! I’m glad you are enjoying reading the blog. I love to cook for people and entertain, it’s my favorite thing to do. I wish we lived nearby each other still, I would cook for you all the time! You are the one that taught me to make ribs in the slow cooker, yum!
      I’ve been away from my blog for a couple of weeks, back on today. We were in Hawaii, so fun!
