My name is Kim Douglas Santilli and I am a 7th generation Floridian finding myself now living in rural Iowa. I have been married for almost 31 years to a wonderful man named Pat and we have two children; Hope is 17  and Nicholas (Nico) is 15. Our lives have changed tremendously in the past year and I am finding something new to occupy my mind. So, this is how the blog  was inspired! I have had a love of old cookbooks and cooking since I was a child.  I am new to the “blogosphere” . My blog is a work in progress and I have some new ideas to add to it such as arts & crafts for kids and decorating ideas!  As I continue my adventure and see other blogs, my mind is full of ideas!  Hopefully I will be able to put them into words and pictures so others may enjoy them also. I welcome any thoughts and advice you may want to lend.  I hope that the recipes in my blog find you as much enjoyment as they have for me. This is just the beginning of my journey…so come along on the ride with me!!!!

    This is a new arena for me…..I hope I can be successful!!

      I have no doubt you will be successful! Everyone loves to share recipes they’ve tried and loved – which is so much nicer than buying a cookbook you think might be good only to realize over 3/4 the recipes are things you would never make or can’t even find ingredients for.

        I agree with you Christine about the cookbooks……thats why I am trying to start this blog! I am learning my way around (slowly) and plan on upgrading the website in a couple of months. I like your site too!! This blogging can become all consuming if you allow it to. With 2 teenagers, 2 cats, 3 dogs AND a husband, I am not sure how far I can go with it. But I am going to give it the “old collge try”! Thanks for stopping by!!!!

      Miss Chris…..I look forward to following your blog as well! And I most certainly will try a few recipies! I love to try new stuff……I drive my family crazy with all the new menus I come up with! But mostly, they enjoy it. I have been married (and cooking!) for 31 years, and it becomes very easy to find yourself in a cooking “rut”! Happy Cooking!!! – Kim
