Hi! I’m Summer Weaver, and I’m here to make your life easier. And yummier. My husband Mat and I both work and go to school, so finding time to eat the right way can be really difficult. I can’t tell you how many hours I spend each week trying to find recipes that are healthy, easy, and delicious. Lucky for you, I’m putting our new and classic favorites all in one place.
This blog started off as a project for my creative writing class, but it’s made me realize how fun food can be. I’ll be posting good ole family recipes, along with new ones I’ve discovered. Occasionally I’ll steal some ideas from other food blogs, but don’t worry…I’ll give them credit. Most of my recipes are healthy, but I just haaaave to throw in a few desserts every once in a while. My goal is to help you refrain from ordering pizza the next time you hear “What’s for dinner?”.
I haven’t always loved cooking. I remember freshman year of college living off of scrambled eggs and chicken tacos, with the occasional brownie (from a box mix) for dessert. But now that I’m married, I have a hungry hungry husband and this crazy new desire to create delicious foods. Weird, right?
Here’s the exciting part: Mat and I love trying new recipes. We will be your humble taste-testers. If you have a recipe that you think should be featured on my blog, send it to me! I will happily cook it, my husband will happily eat it, you’ll get a shout out on the post, and the world will be blessed by the yumminess of your recipe. Everyone wins!
