I do me, you do you...
Look, I LOVE to cook. It's a hobby, a passion, a necessity to live. I enjoy being creative, and that creativity presents itself in many ways. I love good food, I won't ever eat crap. I want my family to eat good, healthy food. I love to make them happy with my food creations. It's my personal goal to make my food better and better each time I cook. This is part of who I am... a cook.
I work full time because I have a job. And life costs money.
We homeschool our son because that's what's best for him, and I always will want the best for my children.
When I share my recipes, or ideas, or organizational skills, or any part of my creative side, I'm not showing off, I'm not doing this with the mindset that I'm better than anyone. I do me. If what I do doesn't fit in your life, that's ok. You do you. But if i can inspire you a tiny bit, I'm thrilled.
I love baking our bread and making almond milk for Griffin. I love that my pantry is full of things I've canned and grown. This is me. This is how I was brought up. It's perfectly ok if you don't make almond milk.
I love to make decorations for my home, and to garden. These are things I grew up watching my grandmothers do. I carry the tradition.
I love being thrifty so I can have money for nice things or fun things. Cooking from scratch is cheaper in my world.
When I share, it's to help others see that eating healthy can be done, with a busy life, with a limited budget, with little cooking skills. If I can share 10 things and one of them makes someone's life a tiny bit better, then I'm making the world a little better.
I may not be skinny, I'm definitely not young, but I have a very good life, filled with people who make me laugh, inspire me, love me. My life is perfect for me, and anyone who wants to be jealous or throw shade can just have a seat. In another auditorium. Across town. I don't want to hear it.
I'm not doing anything special that no one else can do.
Thanks for following and reading and using my recipes. I feel very blessed to have so many people tune in.
