A Food Blog for Home Cooks and Foodies

I’m here to show you that you don’t have to live in the big city or have a lot of money to eat like you live in big city or have a lot of money.

My name is Christy, and I am a country girl living in the heartland who cooks up easy gourmet recipes for my husband and I almost every day.

Join me as I put gourmet twists on classic recipes right here in our 170-year old midwestern farmhouse.

Follow me to come back for seconds!


Favorite Seasonal Recipes:

Instant Pot Chili With Pumpkin

Homestyle Harvest Instant Pot Chili

This truly is the best Instant Pot chili recipe for fall! Although it is tradition to flavor chili with a lot of heat, this fall chili is milder than most. Autumn recipes don’t have to be spicy to keep you warm, just piping hot!
