Recently married, had our first baby one day before our 1st anniversary. I discovered that I wasn't thriving well on the Standard American Diet, and since we can't afford to shop at Health Food Stores, I've been learning to cook healthy, "close to the ground" meals from scratch. I love the way I feel after eating these truly nutritious foods, and I feel good knowing my family is getting better nutrition. (By healthy I mean less GMO, less refined, and more whole. Not exactly low fat low salt, just unrefined fats and Real Salt brand salt from Redmond, Utah. Check out realsalt.com.)
My favorite things to cook
Soups, spicy foods, cooking from food storage
My cooking triumphs
100% Whole wheat broccoli pizza-- it's delicious!
Learning to cook from stored foods, and learning to cook scratch period
My cooking tragedies
Bean and Bacon soup in a pressure cooker with not quite cooked bean puree... we got pizza that night
