My name is Lisa. I’m a mom, a wife, a cook, and a Registered Nurse. We live on a new and growing farm in Texas. We are a blended family with five kids (yes, all my kids, the first 3 from my previous marriage). It’s our job to keep them full and healthy with a good heart and hopefully with their heads on straight.
I am originally from Dallas, Texas, a real city gal. Kevin, my husband, is a country boy from East Texas. Soon after we married, we moved to land where we could call it our own. Kevin and I love raising our children in a place that inspires us to discover, adapt, and create.
Things I love include carbs, gardening, farm-fresh food, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and of course, Frannie Merritt Farmer. If you know who Molly Brown is, her strong persona and resilience inspire me (watch the old movie “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”). Then there is Frannie Farmer, who despite being partially paralyzed at 16 years old from a stroke, found and developed some of the recipes and cooking techniques we use today. She wrote and published many recipe and homemaking books that are still in publication today. I wish to be only half the women they were!
I hope to share with you not only times on the farm with the family but also some recipes that can be used and loved at your house too!
I’m obsessed with making this world a better place and eating good food while we are at it. I hope to share with you not only times on the farm with the family but also some recipes that can be used and loved at your house too! All recipes go through a rigorous process that is FARM-ILY approved!
(Above is my Mom and me. Did you notice we have the same teeth?) We have so much fun together. Life is so short, be proud of every moment you have together.
