Hello friends. My name is Jill and I love to cook!  I am so excited to start this new chapter of blogging recipes with you. I have to admit most of my recipes are found on Pinterest and modified to fit mine and my families preferences in taste. I love finding a good recipe and changing it up to make it my own.  I like making all types of food, but I really enjoy baking the most, especially cheesecakes.

The reason I choose to name my blog five thumbs up starts with my 5 year old son, my biggest critic.  If the meal is really good he gives me a thumbs up. My family has now started giving me thumbs up when they enjoy a meal; so if we all like it, then it’s five thumbs up!  Now my 5 year old isn’t always the best judge because some of the best meals I’ve made he has called poison.:)

I am a stay at home mom and I have 4 children, ages 8, 5, 3, and one in heaven.  My husband is a pastor, so that makes me a pastor’s wife. Jesus is the most important thing in my life and then my family. I enjoy making great meals, but I get the most satisfaction from making kick butt desserts!  The only bad thing about loving to make desserts is having to eat them all the time, not good for the waistline.

I look forward to getting to know more people who love to cook and finding more recipes out there that get me five thumbs up from my family. I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as we do!
