Thanks for stopping by to learn a little bit more about me.
I live in a small community in southeast Iowa. I met my husband in high school and we have been married for over 30 years. We live on dead end road on a farm just down the road from his family We have two girls. My oldest was just 4-1/2 months old when she had a case of meningitis that left her with special needs. 22 years ago I became a stay at home mom to take care of her needs. Now I use the time to do things for my family that I wouldn’t have time to if I had a job, like gardening and canning. I used to also milk goats and make cheese but since our move we had to sell our goats. I cook most of our meals as well as send the leftovers to school and work for lunches.
I started off sharing pictures of food I was making on my personal Facebook page. I would get requests for recipes so I started a basic page for recipes. One day I was watching “Julie and Julia,” a movie about a lady who blogs about working her way through a Julia Child cookbook. I thought it sounded interesting so I thought I’d give it a go and figured why not. I share new recipes as well as old family recipes. I provide step by step photos to help guide readers through a recipe. I hope to encourage my readers to try something new and prepare more foods at home.
