Life in Leelanau

Mom, writer, wife, cook, farm girl, cookbook addict (this order is constantly in flux)

As an ahem, mature, mother of two it is something of stretch to still call myself a farm girl. Growing up we were definitely not what one might consider to be well off, but when it came to food we were self-sufficient for the most part and as such always well-fed. However, in my lifetime I have watched this situation completely reversed, sadly evidenced by the long line at the local food pantry. This blog is about my attempts to salvage some of the self-sufficiency I learned growing up as I work to bring some farmhouse comfort to the next generation starting out under my roof in beautiful Leelanau County (go Lakers!).

I hope these recipes will inspire you to spend lots of enjoyable time in the kitchen, and I do try to make all the directions as thorough as possible. However, I cannot accept any responsibility for problems with the recipes or mishaps/injuries that you may encounter.

Thanks for coming on this journey with me!
