Welcome to Dishes & Dust Bunnies!
I'm so happy you're here!
My name is Michelle and I'm a stay at home mom and full time blogger with a passion for cooking, crafting, DIY and life as a modern homemaker.
I started Dishes & Dust Bunnies back in 2014 as a way to share with others the recipes, tips and hints that have helped to make my own messy chaotic life as a mom just little easier! ðŸ˜€
I figure, chances are if something's helped me, it's got to help someone else too!
Who am I?
Now living in the big ol' city of Toronto with my husband and son, I'm a proud east coast Canadian originally from the rural countryside of New Brunswick.
I enjoy sharingÂ my recipes and useÂ a variety of styles and influences in my cooking and especially love to make home cooked old fashioned country meals similar to what I had growing up in on my grandparents farm.Â Â I'm still a country girl at heart! ðŸ˜€
I'm known for my sarcastic sense of humor, great big smile and positive outlook on life when things get tough. You can usually find me cranking up the volume of my favorite tunes while experimenting in the kitchen or re-organizing my sons toys (for the millionth time!). I truly LOVE and appreciate all music – seriously, play me some classic country, metal or even polka and I'll be happy as a clam! lol ðŸ˜€Â I also have a love for art and theater and can sometimes be a little dramatic myself. ðŸ˜‰
Expressing myself and helping others through my writing is something I'm very passionate about. It's an absolute pleasure to share my recipes, thoughts and adventures with you and I'm honored and truly thankful to each and every one of the readers who visit Dishes & Dust Bunnies! <3
