I’m Diane!

I’m a mom of 2 who loves creating in the kitchen! From mouthwatering dinners to decadent desserts, nothing brightens a day like homemade food. That’s why I’m sharing these simple recipes with minimal ingredients. Around here, we like to keep it easy, keep it delicious!

I started blogging back in 2014 when my son was born. That blog, Homan at Home, has gone on to be featured on Buzzfeed, the HGTV blog, and on the Today Show. It’s full of recipes and kid-friendly activities!

Simply Five Ingredients began in 2023 when I realized that the older I get, the simpler I want things to be. As my kids get older, it seems like evenings are spent out at activities or on the go. I want recipes I can put together quickly and that use just a few, low-prep items. That’s what you’ll find here — easy and quick recipes that use five ingredients or less!
