About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Hello and welcome to my new blog...recently i discovered that i was trying alot of new recipes to WOW my husband. so i'm documenting things on here so friends and family can try along with me! if you have any suggestions for me to try - let me know! i won't post them till i try them! i will always try to add pictures - but with an active family i can't promise i won't forget.


  1. so excited about this Amanda! I'll be stealing some Im sure :p

  2. go right on ahead! i actually have this binder of recipes that i pulled out of magazines and it's normally the book i use for all my cooking...my neice loved it too - i copied the WHOLE THING for her for christmas - though i've added a TON of pages in a years time - i've almost outgrown the binder!
