Welcome to yet another food blog! The world needed one more. What can you expect to find here? (I’m really just winging this and don’t have a plan…don’t tell anyone) Since I’m a harried, working mother of 3, you will find many what can I make quickly with the ingredients that I have in my pantry recipes (think of the show Chopped…with 2 fighting siblings and a 3rd kid crying because his food is “super gross,” which it’s NOT by the way). On the other hand, I love making “traditional” baked goods and working with different dough – it’s my therapy! Therefore, you will not see mention of short cuts in those 2 areas. But, feel free to create and use shortcuts if that’s your cup of tea! Nothing wrong with that, I’m just weird. Taking the time to bake the traditional way gives me a feeling of connection with my grandmothers and the prairie pioneers who came before them. You’ll also find tried and true recipes, new recipes I’ve tackled, scattered with an occasional sentimental blurb about life and family – or my take on it anyway. But be patient with me….I just arrived on the blogging scene! I’m still trying to play with my page, so right now, you’ll find recipes at the top of the menu, as well as at the bottom of each page under “categories.” And if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, I do believe my “search” option is working!
I think it’s worth mentioning what you won’t find here – expert or how to advice (I’m just an average mom who had an awesome cooking/baking mom. And I’m the granddaughter of 2 talented German grandmothers – what do I know?), fussy food, hard to find ingredients or supplies, and professional grade pictures…ummm, I’ve got a camera phone and it’s impossible for me to play hooky from work to take pictures during those magic hours of daylight. But, I do have weekends!! Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, I hope you can hang out with me awhile. Maybe you’ll even find an enjoyable morsel (food or thought) or two during your visit!
