Hi and Welcome to Mom’s Dinner! I am so excited that you have found your way to my oh so wonderful space on the world wide web. I am Susie, the Mom behind Mom’s Dinner. I live in the Kansas City area with my sweet hubby John, and our two cute little stinkers, Maddie & Kyle and our new puppy, Ollie.
Mom’s Dinner actually started as a Youtube channel. In the beginning I was doing sped up cooking videos only showing my hands (like the Buzzfeed Tasty videos). I quickly realized that I had a lot to say about the recipes, more than just showing the ingredients. So, I took an enormous leap out of my comfort zone and decided to film myself while cooking and talking on camera. And, to my surprise, I loved it!! After a few times being in front of the camera I realized I had more to say than I could fit on a 5 minute cooking video. I needed somewhere to write tips on cooking, reviews on my favorite kitchen supplies, stories behind my family recipes, and details on the products I love. And so, the MOM’S DINNER BLOG was born, I love it and it has thrived since!
I love all things food. I was raised in the midwest and all of my family get togethers were centered around a meal. What we were having for dinner, what dessert we would have, who would be at dinner, what time we were eating… you get the idea… it was all about the food, baby! Thru my life every job I have had (except lifeguarding) surrounded food too, waitressing/bartending in multiple restaurants, event planning, catering, and wholesale food sales. I now stay at home mom with my cutie kids. This job is 5000% food based, especially in the summer. It seems like I am feeding an army, but there are only two small children!
By no means am I a trained chef but I think my life experiences give me some street cred. I hope you stick around to find some delicious easy dinner recipes that you can use in your kitchen.
