Welcome to my blog! I am happy to be sharing my favorite recipes and tips here. I think in addition to getting the word out about these great treasures I’ve discovered over the years I will enjoy having this record of recipes for my family. My husband, four children and I live 30 minutes from any restaurants or grocery stores. We like cooking the slow way using whole fresh ingredients. Whenever possible I like to prepare things from scratch. We grow much of our own produce and have just added chickens and ducks for farm fresh eggs. We are way off the beaten path and relish our time in the country. Mealtimes are my favorite time of day with my family and I spend a good portion of my days preparing for them. My goal is to provide pleasing nutrient filled comfort that keeps them coming back to the kitchen table for more.
