I’m just one of those sentimental types…
I find that so much of nostalgia is of the edible kind. Food connects us to our childhoods, to the people we care about, the places we’ve been, and the places we dream of visiting. I’m building upon the foundation laid by my mom and grandmas. Their farm cooking, baking, and family traditions have inspired me to share their home grown hospitality. Starting a farmgirl’s dabbles from scratch in April of 2010, I have blended the traditions of family into the modern foodie world. You can count on every recipe you see here, as my family has given their approval on each and every one. And along with recipes, you will find cherished family photos, life stories, and other artsy-fartsy dabbles. My hope is that a little bit of my everyday life will spark some inspiration in yours.
