Ivan grew up on home cooked meals.  I grew up on frozen dinners.  Cooking comes natural to Ivan.  Everything he makes is amazing and its a guarantee if he makes you dinner you will tell him to open a restaurant.  Cooking did not come natural to me.  Ive thrown many dinners away.  I now feel confident in my cooking and love creating new meals for my family.  We also love trying new restaurants and letting our kids experience the foods other cultures eat.  We love trying new foods and seeking out the best restaurants all with a family in tow.  Here we’ll share our favorite restaurants and our own recipes we love to make at home for family and friends.


I fell in love with traveling at a young age.  This has worn off on Ivan and the kids.  As a family we love planning our next adventure.  We believe showing our children as much of the world as we can is invaluable.  Traveling with children isn’t always easy but the memories made are worth it.  We’ll share our tips for traveling with kids and having a great time doing it.


We have four kids.  Ages 10 all the way down to 1.  Our youngest was born with TAPVR, a congenital heart defect.  He had open heart surgery at 2 weeks old.  This changed all of our lives forever.  We vowed as a family to make the most out of life.  We love traveling and trying new foods all while seeking out adventure and new experiences.
