Homestead Grandma

Collector of cookbooks, canning maniac, master chef of huge family dinners and a "hurricane in the kitchen", that's me. I am a very blessed and happily married woman who is mother to three amazingly wonderful grown children and grandma to three perfect little boys with my first granddaughter arriving in February. I’m an aspiring Kentucky homesteader with a huge out-of-control garden. I love to cook and once a week all the kids and grands come over for a big family meal. It’s my favorite day of the week!

I've recently made the switch to the high fat / low carb way of eating recommended by Dr. Jason Fung in his book, The Obesity Code. So far I've lost 11 lbs in two weeks! Yay! At some point I plant to go through all of my saved recipes here and clean out everything that doesn't support this healthy way of eating. I will also be working on converting our family's favorite recipes to healthier versions and will try to get them posted here.

Thanks for stopping by!
