Welcome 2013 Ultimate Blog Party participants!
I’m happy to be joining the Ultimate Blog Party for the first time this year. I love connecting with other bloggers to share ideas and tips, and this virtual event is a great opportunity to do just that.
I’m a married mother of two wonderful children, a 9-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter. I work from home as a part-time grant writer here in Massachusetts. I’m on the PTA board at my children’s school, and I love being actively engaged in their education. I enjoy spending time outdoors and cooking up new snacks for my family.
My website focuses on healthy, whole foods recipes that are affordable and delicious. Real food has a reputation for being expensive, but I’ve found lots of ways to create nourishing meals while sticking to a budget. I’m known in my daughter’s classroom as the mom who makes her snacks from scratch, from muffins to crackers to chocolate popcorn. I like playing with my food and finding new ways to use ingredients or salvage scraps from the compost bin. Last week I took three limp scallions out of my produce drawer, cut off the top half, and put the bottom portion in a glass of water.
After 10 days, they grew into this:
I love this kind of thing!
