Our Approach

Cooking and cocktails are our passion. Despite a busy schedule, we both take a few moments to slow down, and sit at the table for dinner every night. Clearly weeknights are for simple healthy meals prepared with just a few ingredients. Fancy cocktails show up along the way! Conversely, weekends are for Bruce to make some sourdough bread, cakes, or cookies, or other decadent dessert. We feel that if you are going to have some carbs, make the count.

We are living, learning and hopefully teaching...

We encourage your questions, as well as your in put!  While we love cooking, what we love more is seeing what you are posting! Undoubtably we get so much inspiration from all of our followers. Clearly, we would not be where we are in the blogging world, if it wasn’t for the love that you have shown us.

Our Story

A Kansas Girl, Dina, meets a Kentucky Guy, Bruce, & 31 years of marriage later, we are loving life, like we did when we first met at the University of Kansas. For years, we have heard from our friends, "I can't believe you made this!"....from food to furniture, Bruce and I have found our passion. So, this is it....a how to story to share with all of you. We want to share how to make food, build furniture, landscape, garden, and once in a while, mix a few drinks! Enjoy!
