Cooking and writing have been my constant companions ever since I was a small child.

My earliest memories are of my grandparent's garden and watching my grandfather clean fish for our meals. Every bite of food was wrapped in love, and I carry that with me to this day.

My writing is all over the place. For frugal and home cooking- mom stuff, visit The Farming Wife. I blog over at Eartheats.com, about wildcrafting and growing food on our family farm, and I also write about food preservation. Check out my books on Amazon!
