The Cooks in Our Simple Kitchen

Glad you stopped by!  Grab some coffee, have a seat and look around.
I'm Lindsey...the mama (also read "meal planner and main meal preparer") of our simple kitchen.
I love to cook for my family and our friends. I enjoy reading cookbooks and browsing through food magazines.I have the privilege of being a stay at home wife/mom and couldn't ask for a better job!

It's important to me that my family is served fresh, homemade, good-for-you food.

Meal planning at the beginning of each week helps me accomplish that goal. It's much easier to avoid last minute drive-thru lines and fussy, hungry kids when you have a plan!

Chris is the dad of our simple kitchen. We were high school sweethearts and married the summer before his senior year of college. He's the youth minister at our church and enjoys his job but loves his days off spent with us. When daddy is off of work he always cooks a big breakfast! He's asked a handful of times when we're going to open up our diner.

Silas is the sous chef of our simple kitchen.
At 4 years old he has mastered how to crack and whisk an egg, put attachments on the Kitchenaid mixer and be able to tell when a pancake is ready to be flipped.
He's obsessed with Star Wars, loves to build with blocks, play with cars and pretend he's a superhero.

Savannah is the youngest cook in our simple kitchen. She's not had much practice but she does love to taste the things we make! I don't think it will be long before she'll be pulling her chair up to the counter to help.

In our simple kitchen it won't be uncommon to find dishes drying in the sink or a few toys on the floor.
Make yourself at home and enjoy!
