All about Shannon

I love to eat and over the years cooking and baking have become a passion for me as well. I grew up in a family where eating was always the main event. At breakfast we planned lunch, at lunch we planned dinner and at night we dreamed of all of the wonderful things we would consume the next day. Vacations were planned around restaurants we had to go to, whether it was Alfredo’s in Rome to taste their famous pasta or the fabulous Dim Sum place in china town in San Francisco. I have traveled all over Europe and the states and I love different types of cusine. My children now 4 and 6 eat things most adults would not attempt, sushi, falafel, goat cheese etc. In this blog, I plan to share all my favorites. Appetizers, main courses, baked goods and of course desserts. All of these recipes will be in a step by step format with ingredients and pics! So you can recreate them for your family. After having my third child in January 2011, I am working hard to get back to my pre-child body from 7 years ago!! I have been eating healthy and doing Zumba 3 days a week!

    So glad to find this. I have been a YOYO dieter since I had my daughter. I am trying WW for the 3rd time. I need to lose at least 50lbs. I am terrified that I will fail, but finding your website gives me hope.
