Hi, I’m Parrish, I live in Virginia mom to a crazy little boy, wife to the milkman, cook, baker, party planner, book obsessed, nap deprived blogger who loves sharing her easy and yummy recipes with everyone!
I like to create recipes that are easy but delicious, quick but gorgeous, I share the food I like to eat and make and if I can make my recipes with a grumpy kid fussing and throwing dinosaurs into the kitchen you can too!
I see some recipe sites either make long complicated recipes or focus on getting you in and out of the kitchen in like 15 minutes and I always craved something in between. I don’t have hours to spend cooking dinner but I can spare more than 15. So I like to share the recipes I actually cook for dinner which are all family friendly. I also love to bake and share many desserts on here but those don’t take much time to whip up either :)
I do have a few super quick recipes on here, and I do have a few that take a little time, but mostly I have recipes for the everyday cook, the mom who wants to provide a full family approved meal to their family and be proud of what they put on their plates.
So grab a pan, open up that fridge and get cooking!
Every once in a while I will blog about this wonderful thing called motherhood, because I love it and it was a wake up call though how motherhood isn’t perfect. My pregnancy wasn’t perfect, I wasn’t glowing, in fact I was covered in a pregnancy induced PUPPS rash. I learned labor is not all about filling your hospital room with balloons and streamers and waiting for the baby to arrive according to your specific birth plan, that stuff just covers up the blood, sweat, tears, and God knows what else.
After he was born I learned it is okay that my house isn’t spotless, I spend most days in yoga pants with my hair in a bun. Dean does not sit quietly and eat all his veggies at dinner and sometimes he stays up too late watching Pocoyo or Pingu (which drives me crazy, neither of them speak!)
I know mothering is hard and I want to to tell all mom’s you are doing a great job, the crunchy moms, the organic moms, the pizza and a movie on the floor moms, the working moms, the stay at home moms, all kinds of moms and it’s okay, we’ve all been involved in a toy aisle meltdown or gotten frustrated when our kid has insisted on mac and cheese every night for the dinner and it’s ..gasp.. the blue box kind.
So good job mommy, you deserve some cake (which I have several recipes for lol)
