I’m Carolyn – mother of two littles and wife to a man who dances around the house, although you’d never know it. We like to break it down. If it’s been one of those days and you can’t seem to shake off the funk, dancing like a buffoon is surprisingly helpful. It’s hard to be a grumpus while dancing like an idiot.
Chloe is five, and sweet as can be. She creates killer blanket forts for which she uses EVERY blanket in the house. When my girl’s in, she’s all in. Levi is two, and a fierce snuggler. He loves to growl his way around. And of course there’s Mr. Frosty Boots McPiperson Truett, our fat cat who can usually be found snoozing in a sunny spot near the front door (or peeing on our clean laundry). We just call him Piper.
It’s no secret I love food. I own avocado earrings. I am more likely to buy a paint color if its named after a waffle, and ice cream is ALWAYS a good idea. (I blame my dad for that last one.) If we have to eat to live, why not make it incredible?
The hubs eats a great deal healthier than I do, which by necessity helps me eat better too. This blog will be riddled with healthy recipes, as well as not so healthy. I call those ones healthy for the soul. ALL of my recipes will either be gluten free, or easily made gluten free. I found out four years ago my intestines hate gluten. (I wish my brain would catch up) Yep, I have Celiacs Disease.
My little ones are more eat-to-live kind of folk, and although I can appreciate that my four year old discriminates when it comes to food I look forward to sharing my thoughts, recipes, inspiration, and all things food with human beings who don’t think Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is the greatest gift to man. (Um, hello that’s Lucky Charms!)
