Blogging since 2009, I'm a 1950s housewife to the bone and I love to share what I've learned with others. I'm a lifelong foodie, raised with Sunday dinners at my grandmother's and daily scratch cooking in my childhood kitchen. I'm a nerdy homeschooling mama of 3, and a wife of 17 years.

I drink tea when I knit and coffee when I do everything else.

Onward and Upward


I’ve been blogging here for 8 years, and a year more than that before I bought this domain and I’ve loved it so much. Every time I almost quit blogging, either due to time constraints or moving on to other things, I always stop myself because I feel like so many opportunities and friendships started here, I’d hate to let it go.

However, over the last few years there has been less and less engagement on blogs in general and more on Instagram and YouTube. I’ve been creating content on those platforms more this year and not only is it a lot of fun, but there is far more engagement.

The plan from here is for the website to be redesigned into a reference website this summer, with homeschooling information and recipes that I point to from YouTube, with a more update-style blog instead of this content-driven blog.

There is so much content here, it amazing to me that I have not just written all these posts, but that I have made all these recipes! I am looking forward to going through it all and organizing it and deciding what to keep and what to let go of. Expect something new in a month or so, in the meantime, find me on YouTube at!
