Where I Started
I am a long, tall Texan (yep, I’m a little over six-feet tall). I was born in Texas, anyway. We moved to Denver, Colorado when I was a little six-year-old and I grew up at the foot of the Rockies. Not a bad way to start out.
Growing up, my parents would put us on a plane each summer and send us out to west Tennessee to stay with my grandparents on their farm. At the time, I had no idea the impact those summers would have on my life. I remember well the fields of rolling white, fluffy cotton, chickens in the coop, pigs in the pen, and cows in the pasture. And corn. Corn as far as my little eyes could see. I even set the record in my family for eating twelve ears in one sitting. Yep, that’s right. I ain’t shy when it comes to corn.
For side dishes we love anything with Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix in it (we can’t get enough Jiffy around here. We love that Jiffy is so budget-friendly, too). But, we don’t forget about vegetables, potato sides, or our favorite holiday sides such as sweet potato casserole or homemade canned cranberry sauce.
It seems that in the past few years, this world has become so fast-paced and crazy, that I wanted something to slow our family down. Supper at the table, easy meals for tired moms to cook, and ways to stay organized and on budget.
I love to share all types of recipes. Be sure to comment on your favorite recipes and let me know what you think. I’m so glad you’re here!
