Welcome to My Creative Manner, I’m happy to have you here!
My name is Jennifer, my friends and family call me Jen. Michigan is home where my high school sweetheart and I are raising our three wonderful kids. Our oldest is doing adult life, our middle is a Junior in high school, and our baby is an 8th grader.
Even though life can get busy our goal has always been, family first. Family meals together are a must in our home. We find it's a great time to connect as a family and also catch up on the days events. Simple recipes make it easy to get to that family time.
I started My Creative Manner for a couple of reasons. I wanted to share my love of cooking and baking with others. My hope is that someone will be inspired by some of my recipes. I feel that cooking and baking doesn't have to be an all-day event. That's why many of my recipes are quick and easy recipes.
The second reason was for my kids. I have always wanted to make a cookbook for them, now they have it here. There have been many times since I started My Creative Manner that my kids will pull up my site to make a recipe. Warms this mom's heart.
My kids inspire me to be the best version of myself and to keep pushing myself. My Creative Manner is definitely a way that I can push myself to be my best version. Because of this my recipes are tested and approved by my family many times over.
Along with my love of cooking and baking, I have a love of Christmas. You will find a collection of posts related to Christmas and how I decorated our home for the season. I truly believe in the magic of Christmas.
I also have a need to keep myself busy, which DIY's or craft projects help fuel this need. You can find in my DIY projects, some beautiful wreaths that I have created, even how I have organized some areas of our home, and how I decorate for some Holidays under the Outside the Kitchen Tab.
Thank you for stopping by My Creative Manner. I look forward to sharing many more of my simple recipes and projects with you all.
