Stay at Home Mom & Food Connoisseur
Hi friends! I am Melissa, a full-time wife and mom living in the South. My husband, daughter and I are born and raised from Southern California and transplanted out to our small town in the panhandle region of Florida. My husband and I grew up in the suburbs in SoCal and are now living in a rural town in our farmhouse on 6 acres of land. To give you some perspective, we went from city water and high speed Internet to well water with a septic tank and pretty much dial-up Internet. The cost of living in SoCal was high, the traffic was THE WORST, and we needed some change (geographically-speaking). My husband started a new career out here so we sold our house in SoCal and moved to the South.
With this new career move, I have been able to stay at home with our daughter, and it’s been amazing! I’ve been able to enjoy our new digs and cook some pretty awesome meals in our home too. While posting pictures of a lot of the food I make on my story on Instagram and Facebook has made family and friends hungry, I knew I needed to start a blog about all of the delicious dishes I make. I am going to document on my blog about the meals I prepare and post about the results and any other tweaks I might do to the recipes. I have been inspired by The Pioneer Woman and also from watching he movie “Julie & Julia,” to start a blog about the cooking adventures I have. Some of the dishes I will make will be from the cookbook “The Pioneer Woman Cooks: The New Frontier” over the next year and I will also make dishes in that have been my “go-to recipes.” Hope you all can enjoy my posts and start some cooking adventures of your own!
