Grow Your Own Food: Easy Garden Ideas

 

It’s no secret I love food!  I love eating food, cooking food and even growing food.  My grandparents always had an amazing garden.  Growing my own garden makes me feel connected to them and the memories I have of spending summers helping in their garden and shelling peas as a little girl.  Gardening also helps me feel connected to nature. It’s amazing to me that one little seed can become a fruit or vegetable that I can turn into a meal to feed my family. Not to mention that for some reason homegrown food tastes so much better. If you’ve thought about growing a garden but aren’t sure where to start I’ve got some easy garden ideas to get you going.

So I worked it into my menu plan and gave it a try.  Here’s my Blue Apron Review from a busy mom’s perspective.Blue Apron Review- A Busy Mom's Opinon Continue reading “Blue Apron Review- A Busy Mom’s Opinion”

Pantry Meals- Meal Ideas When “There’s Nothing to Eat”

One of the things I really enjoy about cooking is that you can literally take a few ingredients and make something out of nothing.  Whisk together an egg, oil, flour & milk and you’ve got pancakes or even a cake.  It’s almost like magic.  I always feel like a super hero when I’m able to whip up a meal after my husband looks in the pantry and declares “There’s Nothing to Eat”.Pantry Meals
