About Me

Hi, I’m Ashley. I’m a FCS/Health Teacher turned Stay at Home Mom. I live on a farm in rural Iowa with my husband, Dylan and my daughter, Hallie.

For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for food and creating new recipes to share with others. Though I am not in the classroom anymore, the desire to share my knowledge with others and to create inspiring content still burns strong. As much as I love a tasty recipe, health is also a top priority for myself and my family.

When I first moved to the farm I had hardly any clue on how to grow and store my own food. With an opportunity that would be hard to pass up I began my journey as an “amature homesteader” in 2017. Fast forward to now, going on year 6 of our weedy, yet productive organic garden that seems to just keep growing. Along with our second flock of chickens and learning to make more and more staples from scratch and source more of our own food.

Health can have many different interpretations, but I have come to a happy conclusion that a healthy diet includes balance, sustainability and focusing on using real foods. If you want to learn to make more recipes from scratch, while making them fit into your busy schedule, and enjoying food that is still full of flavor, then you are in the right place.
