We Are the Smith Family

Hi, We’re the Smith Family!

We created this blog way, way back in 2008 as a way for our out-of-town family and friends to keep up with our growing family.

But as the kids grew, it became harder to write posts about them while still respecting their privacy.

It Started With A Chocolate Pie

In 2018, we wrote a post about our favorite chocolate pie that we have been making in our family for many years.

It’s the #1 requested thing for us to make for family dinners and we love it so much.

Smith Mom, Jennifer, has always had a passion for cooking and inventing new dishes and this love has passed on to her daughter as well.

So, with that first post about chocolate pie, we really started cooking together more and posting about it here on

It’s a Family Affair

Every member of our family participates in this blog in their own way.

Not because they have to but because they want to! Both kids help with the cooking.

They also take many of the beautiful photos of our dishes and help with our social media channels.

Cooking together in the kitchen has really brought our family together in other ways and we’d love the same for your family.

When creating these recipes, we thoroughly test them to ensure they turn out perfectly for you.

We break each recipe down into keys to success because we truly want you to be successful in the kitchen.

It shouldn’t be stressful to make delicious food at home.

Jennifer has been cooking for her family for well over 30 years.

When she was just a young girl, she was cooking full meals in her family kitchen back in Arkansas.

She liked to get fresh fruits and vegetables out of the garden and use them in whatever dish she was making.

It was always a challenge to come up with recipes that used what she had on hand, but she would scour old church cookbooks until she found just the right recipe that fit her ingredients.

We’re Unique and Here’s Why

This food blog is really a labor of love from our whole family to yours.

We love sharing our favorite recipes with you and we hope you love them too.

Our recipes are extensively tested and perfected. We keep trying it over and over until we get it just right.

We put a unique spin on a recipe blog by providing the keys to success to make sure your food turns out exactly as expected each and every time.

We value your time and want to be good stewards of it by making things easy for you to find.

We’d Love to Connect with You

We’d love to hear from you if you have questions about a recipe, if you tried a recipe, or if you just want to say hello! You can email us or find us on social media.

Thank you

Thank you for stopping by to check us out. We hope to see you around here again soon. Please let us know how we can assist YOU in the kitchen.
