Welcome to The Old Summers Home! Being a mom of four and running home businesses with a serious DIY addiction means I’m constantly on the go. I want our family to eat healthy easy meals and I know that is not always simple! I want to make your life easier, therefore, I’m now sharing my Easy Recipes for busy moms – by a busy mom!
Easy Recipes for Busy Moms by a Busy Mom! This section features easy recipes that are tried and true and a breeze for any mom to whip up. I have added a twist to these easy recipes to make them even more delicious than the first time we shared them at our dinner table. I’m a girl who loves good food (who doesn’t?)!
Just like all things DIY, I love to put some love into my cooking. I find a great recipe and I add my own twist. When we go out and experience a great meal I come home and try to recreate it! I have become a pretty tough food critic over the years and nothing is more indulging to me than a great home-cooked meal.

Cooking doesn’t need to be boring, it doesn’t need to be something you just have to do! Join us and add some fun easy recipes to your family home-cooked meals and some happiness to your taste buds! My easy recipes will make your weeknight meals so much quicker and tastier.
I want to help bring back that joy of cooking and meal prepping by sharing my love of cooking with you. There is nothing that makes my heart sing more than sharing great food with my family. I hope that our favorite easy recipes become your favorites too!
