Hi!  I’m Wendy and I share family-friendly recipes and travel tips over at Around My Family Table.  I’m a published cookbook author and I’m working on book #2.  I love providing a wonderful, home cooked meal for my family.  But I also realize that getting supper on the table cannot take several hours, it has to be under an hour.  So, most of my recipes are quick and easy and most are from scratch!  I hope you will stop by and join me at my table.

Wendy O'Neal is an author, food blogger, and lives in AZ with her family.

My family moved to the East Valley when I was in 4th grade from the great state of Texas.  I’m totally a Texas girl stuck in Arizona!  Both my husband and I graduated from Dobson High and then from Arizona State!  Go Devils!!!!  Yes, we were high school sweethearts and we still live in Mesa!  I’m a stay at home mom to 2 kids (13 & 8) and they keep me super busy!
