Welcome welcome! I am ecstatic to have you here!
Once upon a time, Cami (original creator of the blog TIDBITS and also my very talented sister) approached me about creating an Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook together, and now a year and a half later, I'm jumping head first into running a food blog! I am 100% a girl that craves predictability and control over every possible situation so this is completely exciting, terrifying, and exhilarating all at the same time. I no longer know who I am, how I got here, or where my new adventure is going to take me, but I've gotta admit, I'm kinda liking it!
So here is your personal welcome to join me in my new journey! I've got a tattered, food stained notebook full of recipes that I'm just dying to get into your homes. My brain is going non-stop imagining and planning all the things I want to be incorporated on this here blog, but here's a taste of what to expect-
1 – FOOD! Obviously, right? More specifically I want to filll your homes with my families favorite recipes, my crazy ideas (remember the pressure cooker vanilla extract – I've got more where that came from!), lots of pressure cooking recipes, lots of whole grains, lots of naturally sweetened desserts, and of course the occasional over the top dessert so my kids never forget I'm their favorite mommy chef.
2 – My life is all about family. I find great happiness in being with my family and refer to these bits of pure joy as the “The Good Life“. I'm so passionate about this, I've dedicated an entire section of my blog to it, and I can't wait to start filling it up!
3-In the short 13 years I knew my father on earth, I learned to crave knowledge and learning from his intense example. My desire to learn a subject to the max can on one hand be a curse, the other hand a blessing, but regardless of what it is, it is always an opportunity to share with others what I've learned. I'll be referring to this in a little section I'm calling “Healthy Living“. It's ever evolving of course, but I am anxious to get these life lessons into your hands!
So here we go! There are so many empty spaces on my new blog that I'm just dying to fill up. I've got so much to learn and feel like I need to do it all by tomorrow! I start everyday with a mile long checklist and go to bed each night with a dose of reality as I realize I'm a wife, a mama, a daughter, and a Nurse Practitioner and can only do so much. So have patience with me! I owe so much to my sister Cami for bringing me along on this adventure. It makes it all the better to be doing it with her and I can't wait to see what my future holds. What more can I say? Let's do this!

This sounds a wonderful venture for you. Looking forward to reading what you have to off. Congratulations and best wishes from the other side of the world.
Thank you so much Nancy!
Hi Marci! I am so glad that you will now be a part of the blog and bring all the delicious-ness to it! I really feel that this is a blessing and that it will be a great addition to Tidbits. You are going to add so much to the site as well as bring a fresh perspective on other things too. I love that you will have a part of your side of the blog devoted to family and healthy living. I love that and I love that feeling when you get to “know” the person behind the blog and see pics of their gorgeous family! Yours is just too precious!
I am so happy you and your sweet sister decided on this path and I am very much looking forward to it all! Much blessings on the journey ahead and I kow you will do just fine…I imagine it can be scary and all those feelings that go with it, but the fact that you kinda like it, is a step in the right direction! You have lots of support and many who want to learn from someone like you…so it’s all good! Here is to you, Cami and the wonderful things yall will bring and do!
I’m sitting here writing a post for tomorrow with a horrible head cold, and your comment made me feel 90% better :). Thank you thank you for such kind words. All of this is so new and confusing to me, but Cami is helping me baby step my way through it, and everyday I learn a little more. Thanks again Kim, you lifted my spirits so much????

I only recently got an Instant Pot and your recipes are some of the first I have tried. They’ve all been delicious! I’m super happy and excited for you (and for me)! Best wishes on your new venture.
Cori, That makes my whole day to hear you say that. I’ve got more of my favorites coming soon!
