About Us

We are a food loving family of four living in Northern Westchester County, New York.  This blog is a way for us to share our love of all things food, family and fun!  Follow along with us as we eat, travel and have fun in Westchester County and beyond!

My name is Nancy and I am the Mrs. of the blog.  I am a recipe follower, but adapt them to fit the likes of the family and the ingredients on hand.  I love restaurant tasting menus, French fries, goat cheese, and any type of salty-crunchy snacks. I plan the weekly menu and do most of the posting here on the blog.  In my free time I love to read, watch movies, scrapbook, do yoga and binge-watch shows on Netflix!

The Mr. of the family is known around these parts as the “Weekend Chef.”  He will be contributing original recipes that he creates. He enjoys finding inspiration at the supermarket; buying whatever ingredients look fresh, are likely on sale, and making a complete meal with regular success. You might want to hide the ice cream and the m&m’s. They are his weakness and they won’t last long if he knows they’re there.  During the day he’s a financial adviser.  He has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, enjoys spending time with the family, listening to music and watching movies.

The almost 11 year old is an adventurous eater.  She will try almost anything at least once.  She loves to help cook in the kitchen and can make a mean plate of scrambled eggs from start to finish on her own.  Her favorite foods include potatoes in any form, especially mashed,  and homemade pizza.  She is a lover of Converse, Claires, Justice, Teen Beat and reading.  She’s a Girl Scout, does Tae Kwon Do, and plays both the piano and the saxophone.

The 8 1/2 year old is a more picky eater.  He has been known to voluntarily go to bed without eating dinner if he doesn’t like something that his parents have cooked (because they won’t make him a different meal!).  His favorite foods include sushi and treats of any kind.  He also enjoys helping out in the kitchen, but usually only after his “electronic time” has been used up.  He loves the Xbox (especially Disney Infinity), Minecraft, Pokémon, and all things Stitch.  He plays soccer, does Tae Kwon Do and is an amazing artist.

  1. I want to thank you for listing the Canandaigua Wine Trail’s ‘Plant Yourself in the Finger Lakes’ event. The event is happening on both Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22. Could you add the second date to your listing? That would be awesome! Thank you!

  2. Just found you today – and was curious what area of NY you lived in – and low and behold – You probably live very close to wear I work in Rockland County. I live in Orange with my husband and 8 year old son. So – we are practically NEIGHBORS
