I am a mother of 3, young grandmother of 5 and wife of the best husband for 30 years. I love to cook, can and be creative. I am a career woman that balances work and family as best as I know how, so the posts I create are usually things to make life easier and not take up too much time or energy. I will be including recipes, how to tips as well as tried and true hacks for a simpler life. I do have the occasional make it from scratch, takes a long time kind of things and I will try to make that clear up front if it is a long process. Please leave me feedback on what you like, don't like or would like to see. I look forward to sharing how I live life in the country, practically.
