Welcome to my cooking blog. My name is Michelle Jenkins. Let me start by admitting that these are NOT gourmet meals, they are NOT fine dining, but they are mine. I have cooked all of these recipes and taken my own photos. They are fairly simple recipes, most of them are quick to prepare and cook and all of them are delicious. I only post my successes! If something doesn't work out, I don't post it. I hope you enjoy this blog.

What's your favourite thing about Christmas?
Is it the food, the family time or the memories?
It's about the memories of course.
It's about capturing those memories with photographs.

My Memories Suite Version 3 digital scrapbooking software is a fun and creative way to keep and share memories, whether you have a Mac or PC. The software's design tools will help you to build entire albums effortlessly using one of the many installed templates, or designing your very own pages from scratch. It's one of the most popular scrapbooking programs available and is valued at $39.97USD.

  3. Being a mother of three I imagined replacing the images in the templates with those of my own children. Having 3 very different personalities it was extremely difficult for me to choose just one from the gallery. So, I have stated which are my favourite for each child:

    My personal favorite for my 14yr girl is: Memo Boards.
    She has never been a fan of pink, and I just love the layout of this template

    My personal favourite for my 6yr girl is: A Royal Birthday.
    She just loves all things sparkly. I am a huge fan of using more than one image per template and can picture her face within this one.

    My personal favourite for my 3yr boy is: Little Boy Fun by Twin Mom Scraps.
    The colors on this board and the use of several images placed won me over.
