Hi! I’m Tara-Thanks for visiting my blog!

I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother who is a fantastic cook. I have been cooking and baking with my mom since I was a little girl and haven’t stopped. I love trying out new recipes and being creative in the kitchen. I try to live a pretty healthy lifestyle, but haven’t yet found a dish that isn’t better with bacon!

My favorite thing to do is feed my friends and family and little makes me happier than a¬†dinner party! I am also a newlywed! I am having a great time coming up with creative “meals for two” ideas and finding ways to sneak Greek yogurt into my husband’s food (“oh it’s just sour cream sweetie” :))

I wanted to start a blog as a way to share my adventures in cooking and baking with others. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy creating it!

    Hi Tara!!
    We had the privledge of eating at your parents home on St. Patty’s Day; we NEVER turn a “Laura” meal down, and we had your Guiness Brownies. They were out of this world! Ricco claimed he doesn’t like brownies but he sure did a lot of taste testing to realize he was wrong :) I told both Jess & Ash about sugar,spice&bacon so now we all can get some fantasic recipes. Way to keep the family tradition strong. So good talking with you last night. Luv ya, Sue
