House of Yumm



Hey y’all. My name is Serene and I’m the cook, photographer, and blogger behind House of Yumm.

About me:

I’m a busy stay at home mom raising 5 kids with my amazingly supportive husband. We live in Texas and love enjoying the culture around us. 

I am a completely self taught home cook. I love learning about food, cooking techniques, the history of certain dishes and recipes. And most of all I love recreating those recipes in my own home and making them my own with small twists and touches here and there. 

If you can’t tell some of my all time favorite foods are those that are around me all the time here in Texas. Tex Mex being the main influence! I love everything about it, the smell of homemade tortillas, the bold enchilada sauces, the fresh salsas. 

If you’re new here check out some of my favorite recipes:

Homemade Salsa, The Best Ground Beef Taco Meat, Easy Guacamole, and my kid’s favorite Mexican ABC Soup

On House of Yumm you can expect to find recipes that are easy to follow, that use real ingredients (I don’t use very many box mixes or pre-made ingredients.) I tend to make my recipes from scratch. But I definitely welcome shortcuts to recipes if needed for time or sanity! 

I love cooking, and take the time to ensure that the recipes I share are tried and true, and that they are recipes my family loves and enjoys and that we will continue to make. 

And also make sure you follow along on social media(Facebook, instagram, pinterest) and sign up for the emails so that you never miss a recipe. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me on any of those channels or you can also email me at I love seeing pictures of dishes you have recreated. Thanks so much!
