About Me

Hi I am so glad you have found my blog.

I L.O.V.E. food and I love to share that with people.  

This love was instilled in me by my mother and growing up in the "wilds" of Idaho on a farm.  I loved my life there and learned how to plant and grow a garden, change lots of sprinkler pipes and tubes, can all our delicious produce, drive a tractor (at least until I almost ran over my dad and he said I wasn't allowed to do that anymore), make some downright tasty bread, raise chickens, feed lots of people (there are 11 in my family--9 kids, 2 adults), pitch ends (it's a boring farming thing I had to do all the time and I hated it), and love the sounds and smells of a kitchen.

I now get to do make all sorts of yummy things for my family--the hubs and 2 boys and 2 girls.  We still live in Idaho, but not on a farm, but almost everything I learned about food came from when I was The Farm Girl.

I hope you stick around.  Sometimes it's a little crazy but hey, who isn't!!??!!

You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, or get your post delivered by RSS.

What a cool blog! I know your husband doesn't ask you to cook as well as his mother; that's me! (and I love to have you take over the kitchen when you come visiting.)

Love you, Julie!

Hi - just wanted to say thanks for linking up to my special About Me Pity Party last week. I loved reading about you! I think you need to teach me a thing or two about farming, gardening and all that jazz. I have a black thumb. :( I love to cook and look forward to your links each week so thanks for taking the time to link up!

I know the frustration of being the Mother of a picky eater! Sometimes every bite of food requires major negotiating skills. It’s exhausting. I have now discovered a great cookbook on Kindle – Kid Approved Slow Cooker Meals – by Kelly Cook. My kids love the dinners and there’s 50 of them. Hooray! No food arguments for almost 2 months.
