I am a mother of two, a business owner and a blogger living in Chicago. In 2007, I started blogging to explore new recipes and as an excuse to buy a fancy camera. Pull a up a chair to my "virtual table" for some food, drink and conversation.

What's the one food you could never live without?

What's a treat your kids love that's actually healthy?

What's your best tip for feeding a picky eater?

What's your family's favorite easy crock pot recipe?

Barbeque Pork Sandwiches are a favorite! You can cook and shred a huge pork shoulder and freeze some of the meat for later. I pull it out and use it in tacos, on sandwiches or even on top of salads.

It's almost time to break out the grill! What's your family's best recipe for grilled meat, seafood or veggies? Please share a link to your recipe and image if you have one.

We love these grilled vegetable panini. First you grill the vegetables and then tuck them between bread and grill again. Often, we use vegetables and herbs we harvest from our own garden! Fresh, healthy and scrumptious.

What's your go-to family meal made entirely with pantry staples? Please share a link to the recipe and photo if you have one.

We keep a half dozen cans of black beans on hand - it is our go-to family staple! I doctor them up with spices and herbs that I have on hand and serve them alongside salad, eggs or in quesadillas.
