Welcome! I’m so glad you are here.

A few things about me.

  • I have been blogging for 12 years.
  • I am married to my best friend, and companion for 30 years, Ken (I call him Kenny).
  • We have 4 kiddos; 2 boys, 2 girls. The youngest through the gift of adoption.
  • Last but not least I am a Foodie! Nearly everything I do revolves around food. I love cooking, baking, reading about food, watching food T.V., and most of all taking trips revolving around food. I could talk about food for forever. “Food glorious food!” Oh and I sing about food too, although somewhat off key.

Where I live.

I was born and raised in West Michigan. I have lived here my whole life, with the exception of one year in Germany as a foreign exchange student. I love holding up my right hand and showing non-Michiganders where I’m from. What other state can do that? At the present I live with my family in a southwest suburb of Grand Rapids.

What this is all about.

Eat 2gather is where I share my passion for feeding people. My hope is that this little corner of the web will encourage others get in the kitchen and cook for friends and family.

Food connects people. When we sit around a table for a meal we are sharing much more than food we are able to share our lives with one another.

It’s a proven fact that kids who sit down to a meal with their family at least twice a week are more confident, and more resilient to what the world throws at them. Gathering together for mealtime is important! I hope that the recipes and experiences I share here encourage you to make some food and gather people around your table!

Meals 4 Sharing

This is where I share my passion for loving others through the gift of food. Taking someone a meal when in need, to say thank you, or to welcome them to the neighborhood. I hope this inspires you to love on others with food.

Keeping it real.

(I need to update this photo, it’s as you can see very outdated. Our kiddos are now 27, 25, 23, and 21! The oldest is married and living in Spain with his wife Cami, number 2 is in medical school, number 3 is applying to medical school, and last but not least number 4 kiddo is living in Atlanta going to school.)

Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you! Feel free to email me or leave me a comment on your favorite recipe post.
