We try every recipe & share only the best - Including a few of our own!
Hello and welcome! I’m Gary and I am a food-inspired recovering politician Dad who found that the best way to build family bonds is in the kitchen. My twin (look-alike) daughter, Grace, is my cooking partner. Together, we love to cook and EAT great food! Every Sunday we try different recipes and craft an elaborate dinner for our family. We share the best recipes here.
For fourteen years I served the community in local elected office, all while working a full-time job and raising a family with my wife, Heather. In this chaotic and time consuming life, I found the best way to build family bonds was by establishing traditions. Many of these traditions were built around food. Let’s face it, we love to eat! Over the years I have had the wonderful opportunity to expose my children to lots of great cuisine.
My twin (look-alike) daughter, Grace, took to the foodie scene right away. We soon found ourselves going on “dates” that centered around trying delicious food. Then came our life changing vacation to Europe. As we travelled through Paris, London, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Marseille, Rome and more, we are inspired. In each city we explored the local markets, bakeries, and found some amazing restaurants.
Our trip to Europe literally changed our lives. When we returned, Grace and I bough some really cool cookbooks, started exploring recipe blogs, and now craft an elaborate Sunday dinner for our family each week. We plan our menu, identify recipes we want to try, shop for fresh ingredients, then get to work in the kitchen – with appropriate cooking music of course!
Then, we share the best recipes with you!

Much of my inspiration for cooking came from my mom. Growing up, she taught me how to make cookies, bread, and other desserts – and I loved it! When Heather and I decided to start our own family, we started “Baking Day.” We make 8-10 different types of holiday treats, package them, and deliver to friends. To us, food and family go hand-in-hand.
Families who cook together, thrive!
