Who are these girls?

We’re Sonya (mom of 4) and Nicole (mom of 3), who both love to cook. We’ve known each other since birth, as our parents were best friends, and grew up 5 houses down from each other in Effingham, Illinois. In fact, as girls, we used to make up our own recipes in our moms’ kitchens (and, we made unsuspecting younger neighbor kids try out our concoctions)! But the connection doesn’t end there…

Nicole’s husband Matt and Sonya’s husband Kirk worked together in St. Louis at a small bank. Kirk was invited to the Pals/Diehl wedding because he was a friend of Matt’s, and Sonya did a reading in the wedding. They officially met on the dance floor at the reception, and the rest is history.

We are nowhere near professionals, but we both like to try new recipes with our families. So, welcome! We’ll be posting as often as we have something to share!

Oh…and the name? If you haven’t guessed yet, it’s something we say to our kids almost every meal.

    Maybe one day…I can barely get a meal on the table without someone stretching me in some other direction!!

    I finally made it over here, and I’m excited to look around. Meals that are kid (and husband) friendly are definitely high-priority!
    I love the story about your life-long friendship and how Sonya and Kirk met!
