My name is Cariann Ryan and welcome to my site! I have created this to be a place to share recipes, tips for saving money, and other ideas for those with a busy life! As a full time professional going to school part time, married with two fur kids, a house to maintain, and not to mention an active lifestyle, I am constantly looking for ideas to either save time and money, or just blow off some steam through cooking and the creative process. Many of the recipes you will find on this site are, like me, works in progress. I hope that you will find them helpful, regardless of your tastes or dietary needs. Really, if there is something that suits your fancy, I would encourage you to add a little of this or that to just about anything, and I will work to suggest possible pairings or additions while I am at it!
