Hi! Its Blair. Welcome to my blog.
I started this blog as a way to help people realize that cooking real food from scratch is not hard. If I can do it anyone can do it.
A little about Me.
I live in super hot and humid South Texas. I’m a wife and mother of four. I have two girls and two boys. I homeschool my middle two while my oldest attends public high school. Oh! and my youngest is only two years old, so I kind of have a little bit of everything on. When I’m am not cooking or wrangling children I enjoy drinking coffee, going to the beach and hanging out with my husband.
I wasn’t always someone who cooked everything from scratch, made her own water kefir or laundry soap. When my husband and I met the only thing I knew how to make was a bowl of cereal. We ate hamburger helper and ramon noodles pretty often. Take out was also a regular thing when we were just a family of three. But by the time we were a family of four living on one income I realized that buying ingredient and cooking my own food was much cheaper. Luckily it tasted better too!
Over the years as our family grew, I learned the importance of reading labels and checking ingredients. I learned how to make more and more things completely from scratch. Things like bread and even mayonnaise. Cooking our own food helped us control what my family was putting in their bodies. Now that we are a family of six I try to do more than just cook real food I also enjoy other forms of natural living and even essential oils.
