A Blessing of the Simple Art of Homemaking and Natural Living
My wonderful mother, who is in her 90s now, took complete delight in being a homemaker and perfecting the art of homemaking – the domestic arts – especially those that revolved around kitchen life. She cooked real food – in season – and made everything homemade from scratch. She kept her pantry well-stocked so as to never run out of food and be prepared during hard times or bad weather. She always had a garden including a huge herb garden which provided her with the raw materials for creating a a plethora of natural remedies for coughs, colds, the flu, and a myriad of other ailments.
My mom taught me how to cook Real Food from Scratch and to use every last bit of every ingredient we had in our fridge, our pantry, and our garden. Having grown up during the Depression of the 1930s, my mom learned how to make the most of everything. She was a true pioneer in spirit with a bit of Yankee grit thrown in. And I am blessed that she passed her knowledge on to me.
And now I’m continuing on in her pioneer spirit with my Yankee grit in tow – albeit I’m now living and loving in the beautiful Texas Hill Country…with the man of my dreams. But that’s a story for another day!
And so, let our journey together as “Modern Pioneers in the Kitchen” begin.
I’m SO glad you’re here…And I look forward to getting to know you!
