I'm a 29 year old farm wife who shares the duties of a 200 acre "homestead" with my husband Tony. We've only been married 10 months and every day is an adventure! We keep chickens for eggs, hunt wild game (turkey and deer) and grow a massive garden! Occasionally we fish as well. We produce about 1/3 of our food supply and we continue to strive for greater self sustainability.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy pouring over antique cookbooks and trying to recreate the recipes of yesterday! I also enjoy finding tasty and unique ways to use garden produce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Refrigerator omelets and leftovers for breakfast
My cooking triumphs
Fried eggs! Though my victory is sporadic! I just can't fry an egg to save my life.
My cooking tragedies
When we first got married I had a whole new kitchen, with new canisters, and new organizational system. Since everything was so new I managed to confuse the salt and sugar canisters and ended up with a VERY salty brownie pie. Being the frugal sort I tried to save the mess but my dear husband urged me to just throw it away. I guess he didn't want to have to eat it.
