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.
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!
