You found me! Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs!


Most likely, one of my posts brought you in, and then you clicked around and found this about page. Thanks for looking around! The main focus of is to capture my journey of my partial total knee replacement surgery to living life as a mom and foodie! I hope every mom visiting this site feels more confident, knowledgeable, and ready to take on the rest of their day. I also hope total and partial knee replacement patients can find comfort, information, and a better sense of what’s to come from this blog.

About Alicia Louise

alicia louise working on her blog.

As you probably figured out by the blog name, I’m Alicia Louise, A wife for the second time. (you save the best for last, am I right?) I am a mother to 3 kids. 2 bonus and one pure mini-me. A little shout-out to all the step-parents and blended families out there. It’s not easy what we do, and we don’t always get credit for it. Keep it up; it’s worth every second, and you are amazing.

I’m naturally a person who loves to keep learning and stay busy. That brings me to the Foodie portion of the blog. In line with my love of fresh food, fast meal prep, making real connections, and saving time and money, I also work as an Independent Consultant with Pampered Chef. I’ve used the cooking tools, training, recipes, and tips from Pampered Chef to create mealtime moments with family and friends every day, and occasionally, I will share my favorite ones with you here on this blog! You can check out what Pampered Chef offers on my Pampered Chef website.

What made me start this blog in the first place? When the doctor told me how long the recovery was for my partial knee surgery, instead of adding many shows to the Netflix watch list, I decided to create the blog you’re reading now! Okay, I’ll admit I added a few shows to the Netflix list, too.

No matter what brings you to my little corner of the internet, I hope you enjoy it, and thank you again for being here.
