About me!

Hi! My name is Sheena and I'm born, raised and still live in Central Minnesota!

I'm best known as a mom, foodie, bookworm and traveler!

Random Facts: I love the color green, working out, wearing athletic wear, sitting on my porch with a drink, snow in the wintertime, hip hop music, board games and exclamation points! 😉

This blog was started back in August of 2011 as a hobby and now in August 2019, I'll be living my dream and working from home full time sharing my recipes with the world.

Thanks so much for your support! I appreciate each and every one of you!

Every click, share and page view helps support a family, provides a home for us to live in, helps pay for sports, band and SO much more! Because of this amazing opportunity, we're able to spend more time together as a family, volunteer more and give back to the community!

  1. Hi Sheena, I just discovered your blog and was just reading the "about you" part, and was kinda laughing, because we're so much alike! (Except I'm quite a bit older than you, think!) I love reading, cooking, taking hip hop at the Y, snow, and have a bunch of big kids. I don't get to travel much but I like reading about others who do. Looking forward to looking more at what you have to say! :)

    1. I'm so glad you discovered my blog! I love that we're so much alike! Thanks for following along!
