Hi – I’m Jennifer and I love everything domestic including cooking, entertaining, gardening, DIY projects and organizing. I’m originally from a little suburb of Kansas City, Missouri and currently reside in Southern California. While I occasionally post about my domestic adventures outside of the kitchen, this blog is primarily about cooking and baking. I am a self-taught home cook who loves to entertain. I will tackle just about any recipe, but most of mine are simple and easy to follow. Cooking should be done with love while being fun and flexible. I like to show you how you can cook at home a majority of the time and actually enjoy it!
Daisy, this blog’s namesake is my rescue pup. She became a member of our family in July of July 2013 after the passing of our beloved Claudia. Claudia was also a rescue dog and lived to be 19 years old! We were very blessed to have her.
Daisy is a handful but we love her. She was born deaf and has probably been through a lot in her first 6 years. We met Daisy while volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society in Mission Hills, California. We bonded with her almost immediately. She came home to us a huge stress ball full of fear. She can be a lot of work and it has not always been easy. However, it’s been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. Watching Daisy’s stress lift and to watch her become a dog has been amazing. Rescue dogs, especially special needs dogs are a very important cause to me.
I hope you enjoy our recipes and hanging out with us. We are very glad to have you here! You can also keep up with our adventures on social media. Please see links to all of our accounts on the home page.
