Where Cooking is Fun
We want cooking to be as fun for you as it is for us.

Hi my name is Dayna and I'm a foodaholic..... Hi Dayna. My mom loves eating too but admitting it for her sounds kind of rude plus she's so skinny that you wouldn't even believe me. We LOVE food and we pretend to love cooking so we can eat all sorts of delicious stuff. We both spend hours looking online and in cookbooks to find amazing recipes and then force our families to test them for us. After months of looking at food blogs all over the Internet it finally dawned on us that "hey, we could do that" and so this blog was born.

I'll introduce you to the cooks: My name is Dayna. I'm 23 and I've been cooking forever. I've been married to my sweetheart Jack for almost 5 years. I work part time at an Elementary School and in my spare time I LOVE to craft. I hate vegetables and despise cleaning the bathroom.

My mom's name is Julie... I'll let her tell ya a little about herself.

Hi, I'm Julie...AKA "Mom".  I am older than most people think that I am and I have been around for a long time...cooking, cleaning and caring for my 6 wonderful children. I have been married for almost 23 years to my sweetheart, Deron. I am a stay at home mom, but I like to think of myself as a Domestic Engineer. I love sunshine, warm weather and the sound of birds chirping by my window. Eating good food is one of my favorite things to "indulge" in, with some of my favorite dishes being Mexican and Italian...but I will never pass up a good cheese cake!

We're SO excited about this blog. Add us to your google reader, your blog roll or whatever else you use! We'll be updating daily (except Sundays). All the recipes you find here will be tried and true. We promise not to suggest something unless we really truly think you just can't live without it. Also NO recipes without pictures. Worst. Thing. Ever. So even if you hate to cook just come back to look at all the pretty pictures. Leave us comments and let us know what you thought. Comments validate us as people. Please. We're begging here.

So there you have it. Welcome to our blog and remember that a home cooked meal is always "Better than Burgers".


  1. I couldn't just comment on one recipe - they all look and sound fantastic. I believe on Wednesday /or Thursday that I will make this soup for a friend of mine - as she is always rushed on Thursday's. Think I'll have some too!

  2. Thank you Saundra. We loved it

  3. Julie, don't call yourself old. I'm the same age as you and I'm having enough of a crisis knowing I'm old enough to be Dayna's mother...
