About Me

About Crystal:

I love to cook! I believe that good meals can be made on a budget. I almost never follow a recipe exactly - but I have a weird habit of pulling out a recipe as a guide even if I only use about half the called for ingredients!

My love for cooking started out very young. I would read my mom's cookbooks (or just look at pictures) and incidentally destroyed at least one (I love you Mom!) I made my first cake from scratch when I was 8 years old (didn't turn out quite right as I forgot to add baking powder - but hey, I was 8).

I believe in the Family Table. Growing up my family ate dinner together every night. My husband and I do that whenever our schedules permit. I believe good food is an important part of dinnertime spent together. My meals are not elaborate, but I try to make them flavorful, healthy and inexpensive. My husband and I got married in 2005 (and are still madly in love) and have three adorable boys that make life fun!
