My young girl self never imagined me being a mother to six children and homeschooling.

Life is an adventure.

I like to make the adventure taste good by cooking tasty, wholesome food. Most of what I’ve learned in cooking, I’ve picked up from cookbooks and lots of practice. (Thank you, Fannie Farmer, for the right start. ) I so appreciate cookbooks that tell how and why to do something; that’s why I do the same for my readers.

I want to know what is in my food. I want my family to sit down and share a meal together. I want our food to taste good. Home-cooking takes time, but it gives back rich dividends in budget minding, good health and familial love.

One meal at a time.

  1. Cook,
    I think you need a Question and Answer section. Today I was cutting a butternut squash in half and was searching for the right knife to use because they are rather difficult to just slice in half. I thought “she would know.” So what is the best knife to use when cutting a butternut squash in half? I ended up using a really heavy serrated bread knife. It got the job done, but it wasn’t pretty. Thanks.

    • Butternuts are a tough nut to crack. I found an old meat cleaver coupled with a hammer was effective, though a tad inconvenient what with getting down on the floor with the cutting board and all!

  2. Love reading your stuff. Fun!
