About us

Hi! I’m Melissa! My husband, Mike, and I live in Ontario, Canada 🍁

Mike and I have been together for 6 years and married for 3. We have 3 crazy, wonderful daughters, ages 9, 7 and 4. I know what you’re thinking…those years don’t quite add up! Like many families today, we’re a blended family, Mike is the stepdad of the older 2 kids. They live with us full time, so we don’t feel like were anything other than a nice, normal family (whatever that means!)

Mike works full time in IT for a large mining company. I’m a home child care provider and former cook and baker. I attended culinary school, and worked in professional kitchens until just this year. I love creating new recipes and improving old ones. My girls love to help in the kitchen and I get them involved the the cooking as much as possible!

I absolutely love all things crafty, diy, thrifty and am a hardcore scrapbooker. I use project life to document the special moments in our lives and capture the girls childhoods.

My goal for this blog is to share my culinary knowledge and awesome recipes, kids crafts and activities and all things I love about being a mom!
