Hi y’all, I’m Jessica, wife to Cody, mom to 3 wonderful spitfire kids, family photographer, former architect, wannabe organic farmer, proud Texan, and drinker of unsweetened iced tea, gluten-free, low carb-eating food lover.
And I’m so happy you’re here!! Most of my favorite memories in life seem to take place around the table, especially when surrounded by people I love. My life practically revolves around food, I dream about food…I’ve even planned entire vacations and road trips around food! So I created this site to share my favorite recipes and stories with you, in hopes that they might inspire and help us all to spend more time around the table and savor the good stuff in life.
All of the recipes in this blog are gluten-free, most are low carb, and many are Feingold friendly, meaning in addition to being free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, they are good for kids with ADHD.
You can read more about our food journey HERE.
Here are some fun tidbits about me:
~ I love to travel
~ I am an avid ellipsis user…I write it like I think it…which means lots of awkward pauses and ramblings.
~ I am a serious chocoholic, but I once went TWO YEARS without even a mini morsel of the wonderful food because of migraines.
~ I am an untalented but enthusiastic singer. I like to really belt it out in the car and then ask the kids if I sound exactly like the person on the radio…to which they yell, “NO!” I also tell them I can sing along to just about every song on the radio…it’s mostly true.
~ I hate to admit it, but I love to watch The Bachelor/The Bachelorette
~ I didn’t know I was pregnant with my 3rd child until I felt her kick…at 19 weeks!
~ I love to play games. My favorites are Scrabble, Boggle, Trivial Pursuit, Texas Hold ’em, Spades, and Words with Friends, Scramble with Friends
~ Unsweetened iced tea is my “vice”
~ I love all types of music…Texas country (my husband’s Texas Music Blog), pop, oldies, rock, 80’s hairband, Christian…and I have a strong fondness for ukulele music and pop songs featuring a gospel choir. Seriously.
~ I like to read…non-fiction mostly, and sometimes fiction, but only if everyone else is reading it.
~ I love farmhouse tables, wearing black, cowgirl boots, my husband, surprise hugs from my kids, patina, galvanized metal, inspiring quotes, my girlfriends, Texas Rangers, white peonies, and being right.
