My name is Leigh. I live in the Midwest. I’m a mother, wife, scientist, cook, gardener, handy”man”, and do-it-yourselfer; listed in order of priorities, not preferences.
I believe that if you have a willingness to listen and desire to learn, you can accomplish….just about anything. I learned to fix my lawnmower, tiller and (I kid you not) my vacuum cleaner. I raised two boys who listen and think (well, most of the time).
I remodeled most of my house myself, including the kitchen you see here.
I love to cook but work full-time. If you want to eat well and don’t have all day. Please check this place out. It is possible to have your cake and eat it too!
Thanks Leigh 😉 I really enjoy looking through your blog. Keep the post coming!
Hi Leigh! I’m Mila and my blog about cooking too:) I like your photos and recipes!
Thanks! I like your site as well. Keep up the good work!
Hi, Leigh! I’ve just nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award.
Thank you for all your hard work! I love getting your posts in my feed.
Thank you very much.
Hello Leigh. That is an awesome job on the kitchen. It is a pleasure to “meet” a multi-talented Mom! 🙂
You’re making me blush! Thank you!

You didn’t list an awsome sister in your bio, but you are. Loved what you wrote about mom.
She was always quite proud of you. Your letters to her were special. Thank you.
Leigh, I LOVE your site and your kick-ass attitude (excuse the French, please!) You are after my own heart with your do-it-yourself views. I am back and running with the foodarella cookbook project and am thrilled to feature one of your recipes. Keep up the great work and I will be in touch!
Great thoughts (with cilantro!)
Sounds good to me! I don’t have much time and want to eat well so your blog should be of great help. Stop by and say hi 🙂
I did….you touch it all there. My brother is an art teacher. Three other brothers also have had their own exhibitions..I have a big family! Glad to see you like the big approach. Life is worth living….go and get some! Keep up the good work.
I absolutely love your philosophy…… If you have the willingness, you can indeed do anything in life!
