Last year I started doing infrequent "movie nights" with my children.  They take turns picking out movies that they would like to watch, usually a newly released movie they haven't seen, but occassionally they will pick out a classic.  I get them all bundled up in their sleeping… MORE

I decided to give up sweets and baked goods for Lent.  I must be crazy!!  This is the most torturous experience of my almost thirty years.  I can't have candy, cakes, cookies, ice cream... nothing.  I feel bad for my poor husband and darling children.  Not only are… MORE

A few months ago, as I was recipe hunting on AR, I came across a recipe for a chocolate cake. Lisa's Chocolate Chip Cake to be exact. I know, I know, it is made from a mix. It goes against everything I believe. But bear with me. I scanned through several photos of this recipe, and other… MORE

For a few months now, since I decided to purchase my Supporting Membership, I have been trying to decide what to blog about. I'm a very part-time secretary for my dad's construction company. I have two awesome kiddos, and a great husband. Snoresville. Who wants to read about that, eh? But last… MORE

About Me
I am the mother of two totally adorable kids. My son is 9 and my daughter is 3. My son is autistic, so feeding him can be a challenge as he has a few texture issues. We live in beautiful Northern Michigan, where the summers are gorgeous, and the winters are COLD and drawn out. Cooking and baking have become a favorite hobby, especially during the long winter months. You can read more about me on my blog jessiesimperfectlife.blogspot.com
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake breads, cakes and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with a mom who is known for her fabulous baking abilities, so we were always decorating cookies, making pies, or baking bread.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned how to make a pie crust that didn't taste like cardboard, or crumble into a pile on the counter!
My cooking tragedies
An incredible desintegrating pie crust.
