A little about me:

I am a self-proclaimed foodie and have loved cooking and baking since I was in middle school. I took my first European trip in high school with a choir group, was bitten by the travel bug and have traveled to dozens of countries ever since. I married my college sweetheart and we now live in Orange County, California. We have two grown kids and a sweet little dog. I started this site as a place to share recipes and organizing tips in 2012, and it has evolved into a place to share all of my passions with you.

My years as a productivity manager have helped me streamline tasks and live an intentional life. My mantra is life is not just about rushing through tasks, it’s about making the most of your time and striving to live a balanced and meaningful life. 

Look for time-saving tips on recipes with the image below for ways to save even more time in the kitchen.

I believe that we are happier and lead less stressful lives when we are organized, effective and intentional. In my dream world, I live on an “organized island”. That’s where my tagline “Staying organized on my island of life” comes from. I am so happy you stopped by today would love to connect with you.
