“I’m horribly messy in the kitchen but the results are always great.”

“Hi y’all! My name is Samantha, I’m momma to Edward, two, with another due in November.  I’ve been married to my husband, Ryan, for four years and we live in rural Manitoba, Canada.  Cooking and baking has been a big part of my life since I was little.  I loved watching my Grandma’s cook and would ‘help’ out as best as I could.  I believe cooking should be fun and easy, no matter the recipe.  I’m horribly messy in the kitchen but the results are always great, at least that’s what my husband says!  Can’t wait to share the recipes I find with everyone!”
