Welcome to Farm Girl Cook’n!
Farm Girl Cook’n is more than just a cooking blog. I originally started it to record stories and recipes that have been in my family for my children and extended family members. I love the stories and memories our favorite foods evoke — the smell of a chocolate cake in the oven, the making of a holiday meal, or a warm bowl of chicken soup when we didn’t feel well.
One of my favorite Irish proverbs is “Laughter is brightest in the place where the food is.” We bond around food, whether it is around the family dinner table, a campfire, a potluck, an elegant restaurant or the local truck stop. Food brings us together; it not only nourishes the body, but the soul.
My blog is about food, but it is much more — it is about living life to it’s fullest, enjoying our passions, sharing the things I love with you, gardening, flowers, farmy stuff, vintage everything and cooking like those that inspires us — mom, grandma, whoever…
It’s also about eating better when we can, cooking and eating fewer processed foods, but not being perfect — just better.
I hope you enjoy my blog, stories, pictures and find something that talks to you on my site.
My tag line “Nothing Fancy” is a tribute to my mom, who tongue in cheek commented often “Isn’t that fancy”…. Love you mom…
Keep it simple and enjoy!
