I am just like so many busy moms out there. I want to create great meals for me and my family where the food brings us together at the end of a long and hectic day. I want to empower moms to feel like they are able to make Great Everyday Meals by using simple, accessible, and inexpensive ingredients and basic cooking techniques. It’s more about family and less about slaving away in the kitchen cooking. I have been a restaurant industry professional for about 10 years and have a great passion for cooking. I will share tips, recipes and techniques that I have learned to arm everyday cooks with the foundation to simple yet great tasting cooking! Johanna M. Cook

Food Company Review - Sugar Monkey Cupcakes

In most recent years, cupcakes have been all the rage. So many boutique cupcake shops have been popping up and people cannot get enough of them. It's size helps to satisfy a sweet tooth craving without having to purchase a whole entire cake. Some people even opt to have cupcakes at their weddings instead of the traditional wedding cake! In addition, cupcake shop owners and bakers have come up with the most creative and fun flavors to keep customers interested and coming back for more.

Sugar Monkey Cupcakes on 28 W. Chicago Ave in downtown Naperville is a small, quirky and fun cupcake shop. The walls are adorned with pink and brown stripes with 2 small café tables and chairs placed right in front of the bakery case filled with their homemade creations for people to drool over. Their cupcakes are made with no preservatives and all natural ingredients. The cupcakes are also much denser than what most people are used to, and the frosting is made from scratch with the simple ingredients of real butter, sugar, eggs, milk, flour and real vanilla.
