About me

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!

  1. I like to fix things too. I learned to fix my toilets and many other things around the house. Hey if you fix my lawn mower, I’ll fix your toilet!

  2. 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!)

    • 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.
