Welcome to Simply Made Eats! Here you will find lots of approachable recipes created by me. My goal is to create simple recipes to make your life a little bit easier.
I'm a mama to two little girls. My husband (just boyfriend at the time) and I got a big surprise when we were 22 years old and 9 months later, little Pay Pay was born. A baby can really throw your plans for a loop, but everything in life happens for a reason. For the last decade, I finished my Master's Degree and have been attempting different careers, on top of helping with my husband's plumbing business & being a momma. Here I am in 2021, and I am finally going all in on the blog. It's been a dream of mine for a long time because I love cooking. I started a food blog back in 2011, but got side tracked by life and never followed through. It honestly probably would have sucked because I didn't know how to cook then, haha!
What I do when I'm not cooking..
You can find me wake surfing or just lounging on the boat with my hubby and the kiddos. If I'm not there, I'll be in the backyard gardening and hanging with the chickens.
Why Simply Made Eats?
Life is crazy busy and I am truly passionate about helping other people, especially busy mommas, learn how to cook, or to get organized and motivated to cook. Whatever the struggle is, I understand it, but getting take out food delivered every meal is not the best option health wise or financially. On SimplyMadeEats.com, you will find easy, quick, and delicious recipes, because ain't nobody got time for those 8 hour meals (unless it's in a crock pot).
I love food & good recipes, mostly because it brings everyone together. It allows me to be creative with recipe development and content creation. I am a self taught cook, and total foodie. I love eating out at great restaurants, but mostly I love the experiences cooking has created in our home. The passion that my husband and I have in the kitchen has ignited a spark in our children towards the art as well, which makes my heart happy.
Thank you for being here on this journey with me and I hope that my simple recipes will help you look at cooking as less of a chore, and more of an experience to bring the people you love together at the table.
