I created Simply Happenings to share recipes with families that help simplify appetizers, cooking dinner, and baking cupcakes. (Because cupcakes are everything.)
I never post a recipe that has not been tested, retested, and perfected before being placed on the site.
They’ve also been taste-tested by my family that give me their instant reviews so that they are absolutely delicious by the time the final recipes are written and photographed.
If you are having trouble deciding what to cook for dinner tonight check out popular chicken recipes and these amazing Instant pot dinners.
A Little About Me
I previously worked as a graphic designer/photographer, and it had always been a dream of mine to photograph food or become a food stylist for a magazine.
After working as a designer for several years, I lost my passion.
Instead, I went to nursing school and have been working as a registered nurse for several years.
During this time I also had two sons and as a family, we decided it was best for me to be a stay at home mom with them.
It was then I decided to complicate my stay-at-home mom jam-packed day.
I love being home with my boys, but I also wanted to break up the day-to-day routine of tasks and earn an income.
Who knew I would find my dream job while working at home?
I dusted off my digital camera, dug out my recipe cards, and began cooking and baking.
I snapped photos as I went and this created my food blog.
So here I am, dipping back into design, photography, cooking, baking, and sharing recipes my family enjoys — hopefully, others too!
