About



Welcome to Simply So Good.  My name is Janet and I live in Utah at the base of the Wasatch mountains.  I have the most spectacular view of the mountains just out my front door.  I love the Salt Lake valley.



When my children were in high school, I realized how important it was to have dinner ready on the table for them every night.  Food brings family home. 

I created this blog for my children as they ventured off to college.  I didn't want them eating cafeteria food.  I wanted them to learn how to cook well.  I wanted them eating healthy food and not living off cheese and tortillas.  I decided to create a place for them to find their favorite recipes with step-by-step instructions. 


This is what means the most to me:

My family.  




This is the day the baby of our family was married.  This is all of us so far.  We'll keep growing.





I thought my life was complete until I had grandchildren.  Now it is complete.







We all love food.  We drove 2 hours once while on vacation because we heard of a great burger joint that had amazing herb fries.  It was so worth the drive.





I love to run. I run with my husband, but have a hard time keeping up with him so I spend my mornings running  with 4 other blondes.  I ran my first marathon when I was 42 and have run a total of 26 so far.  I have run the Boston marathon 6 times.  I consider myself the poster child for:  "If I can do it, any one can".


I love my faith.  Without it I am nothing.

I love my life.  I am content.

I hope you enjoy my blog.
