New? Start Here

Hi there!

I am Alexis but you can call me Lexi.

Over here I am all about cooking, baking, and mess making. I try out new recipes and test out kitchen methods and tips regularly.....being in the kitchen is truly my favorite hobby.

I am a lover of sweet treats, taking long walks with my family, and HUGE family gatherings.

I have a major sweet tooth. And by “sweet tooth”, I mean teeth….all of them. I love love love a good dessert, and I almost always have candy in my purse. Baking cookies is my way of relaxing and taking the time to unwind.

I laugh uncontrollably at funny animals (specifically alpacas), love hot coffee, and adore all things Christmas. When my friends describe me, it always includes animals, candy, and coffee.

Lexi is wearing an apron, holding a tray of cookies and smiling at the camera.

I am married to Clint, my helping hand and chief recipe tester. We have 4 kiddos. Verity and Nora (whom we call “The Sisters”) are big sisters to our fun and busy boys Harrison and Von. We live in the big state of Texas with all the sunshine I could ever want.

I have a HUGE family and we all get together frequently. I have 5 sisters and 1 brother….so we are a full party all on our own. If you need recipes and all the kitchen tips for cooking and baking for a crowd, I am your gal! My twin sister is my best friend. We talk on the phone almost daily and enjoy a close bond that is so special.

For me, there is nothing more rewarding than feeding my loved ones delicious and comforting food. My love for food and recipes really comes from nothing more than my love for serving others and caring for my friends and family. My passion of sharing all of my recipes and kitchen tips is more about hospitality and nurturing. Around the table and lingering in the kitchen….it’s my favorite place to be with all of my favorite people.

When I started blogging in 2011, it was purely just to share recipes with my sisters since we all lived away from each other. Who knew that thanks to Pinterest, my recipes would take off like wild fire and I was cruising to a million page views in just 6 weeks! WOAH! As soon as I learned how to keep up with the fast paced technology world, I dove in to learn food photography and how to create images and graphics. Now, I have thousands of readers a day and I love the connection all around the world……all thanks to food.

For me, there is nothing more rewarding than feeding my loved ones delicious and comforting food.

My goal is that you all will find recipes and kitchen tips that will bring everyone back to the kitchen again. Food should be all about joy, comfort, sharing, building health, and sharing our lives with others. Dinner time can be enjoyable again, and I have everything here that you need to make cooking and baking simple and easy.
