Hello! My name is Sarah and this is my blog. Obviously. Welcome! My family and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest outside of Seattle.
My blog focuses on the four “f’s”:
What I am about:
Good wholesome food shouldn’t be out of your reach. My recipes are designed to be delicious at a low price point, with relatively easy steps. I now work full-time from home, but spent years working/commuting 50 hours a week with kiddos and a spouse gone most of the time. So I understand the time crunch you might face when it comes to providing tasty food quickly and inexpensively. Time management is key, and I hope my recipes can help you spend more time doing what you love.
What I am NOT about:
Making you feel like a douchebag for your own food choices. When I first started reading “real food” blogs, I felt like I was some horrible person because I wasn’t making my family liver, kale, and raw milk smoothies every day. It took me awhile to realize that someone else’s food choices shouldn’t define me. I do not need to answer to some random blogger who didn’t give a tinker’s damn about me.
We practice what I call the “Costco Method” of eating. We primarily eat wholesome food from scratch, but am not above descending like a plague of locusts on the sample tables at Costco. Normally, dinner might look like a plate of grilled home-grown squash and local grassfed beef burgers. But occasionally, it’s more like “hey look, it’s a free half of a tube of GoGurt and one postage stamp sized sliver of beef jerky. Yes please”!
I hate the term “mommy blogger”, so anyone who says that in relation to me gets a swift kick in the clam…also referred to as “the Britney”. I am a mom, and I do blog, but I’ve got more going on that just that.
That being said, family is crazy important to me. So important in fact, that my parents, aka “the gimps” live with us so I can take care of them.
You can read about why we live our lives the way we do here. Frugality plays a huge role in my life, and there are threads of it in everything I do, like canning, sewing, gardening, and stealing unpicked fruit “gleaning” fresh produce from around my neighborhood.
Because life is already too serious to not giggle like a 12 year old boy at potty humor.
Also, I’m not a nutritionist. Or a doctor. Or a Master Gardener. Or a wizard. What I write about is simply my opinion and should be read as such.
So, I hope you enjoy what you read, and like what you see! Feel free to email me with any questions or comments.
