About


Welcome to my cooking blog! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you will pull up a chair and stay a while.  I started my blog in August, 2010 to share our family's favorite recipes and inspire you to get in the kitchen.  It has become my new hobby and creative outlet.

My name is Rhondi, aka "Big Mama", a nickname given to me by my husband because he says that I run our home.  I've been married for 14 years and a stay at home mom to 3 precious little girls. We live in Texas and really enjoy the warmer climate.  I have a passion for cooking and baking, and I come from a long line of great home cooks.  I have always loved being in the kitchen, watching my great grandmother, grandmother, and mom cook.  My mom always worked a full time job, but always made a home cooked dinner for us every night.  Some of my best memories are around the kitchen table at home and at family holiday dinners.

I cook simple family friendly recipes from appetizers, dinners, to desserts.  My favorite cuisines are Mexican (or Tex-Mex) and Italian.  Desserts are my weakness, as you will see, and I love chocolate!  I can't pass up a great cookie or fruit dessert, especially chocolate chip cookies and strawberry shortcake.  My girls adore cupcakes and cheesecake.  Luckily, they are not picky eaters and {usually} eat their dinner.  They always help me in the kitchen, and take turns helping with the cooking, setting the table, and clean up.  My hubby is a meat and potatoes, pasta, and Mexican food kind of guy, so you will see lots of meals to make his tummy happy.

I hope that you find some recipes here to try at home.  Come back and let me know what you think.  I love reading comments and always answer questions.  Please share with your family and friends if you enjoy what you see and taste.  I truly appreciate your support.
