I am a stay-at-home mama to two beautiful and busy girls. The oldest is almost 4 and her little sister is just over a year. I got my love of cooking from both sides of my family. On my mom’s side, my Norwegian roots make me want to make kransekake and marzipan. I crave lox and roe and real butter. My mom is and grandma was an amazing cook. On my dad’s side, my grandma had 10 children. I have 52 cousins (last I counted!) so there were always many mouths to feed. Grandma knew how to cook cheaply but well and feed a crowd. I have memories of visiting her in my aunt’s health food shop, where she would give me yogurt-covered raisins as a treat. So good food runs in my blood. It’s in every fiber of my being; in every cell. I like to feed my family as healthy, inexpensive, and close to natural as I can. Nutrition is always on my mind. So from me you can expect mostly healthy, unprocessed, but still tasty food to feed your family.
Cassie the closest in age out of all of my cousins. We spent some time together as kids but our lives went in different directions as our parents moved and had major life changes. We were reunited a few times but thanks to social media we are able to be close again, even though we aren’t physically close. We are both at similar times in our lives with young families. Cassie is a wonderful mom and wife. I know that she enjoys her job and loves to take care of her family. We have both had some wonderful examples of this sort of love of hearth and home from our family members and especially from our grandmother. We love talking food and family. We can’t wait to share our recipes!
