I’m Valerie.  Usually Val.    Mom of two, wife of two (not at the same time) family cook (not chef) and Breast Cancer Survivor.   I hope to help you save time and money on fashion, food, family fun and more.  I hope you don’t get cancer, but if you do, I hope I can help.

I’m an Anchor and Consumer Reporter for 11Alive News in Atlanta, Georgia.   I love my job, but I REALLY, REALLY love being home with my family and cooking in my little kitchen.  I also love grocery shopping.  Or any kind of shopping. 

My recipes are mostly healthy, seasonal and easy to make family meals.   There are also some splurges and Pantry Meals.  I’m not a professional chef but I love playing around with food!

I LOVE reader comments, so please leave one if you check out one of my recipes!  And thanks for stopping by!
