I am a birth mom to 3 kids, adoptive mom to 1 kid, and a stepmom to 4 step-"adults." Yes, you read that right... 8 kids. I am wife of actor Michael Beach, home cook, taxi driver, herder of children, terrible housekeeper and blogger of mom truth.
I can't unplug, switch to off or silence the constant chatter in my brain and it’s ridiculously exhausting. Is it just me???
I want a gold star for all the laundry I wash, load after load, week after week.
What I didn't realize is that motherhood was going to completely knock me on my butt and all my so called “needs” would become secondary or nonexistent.
Those images of the blissful mother easily breastfeeding a peaceful baby with an almost ethereal glow are a setup because the reality is much more complicated, painful and messy than that.
There is nothing like homemade including chicken stock which is actually quite simple to make on your own.
This week, as promised, I am taking you into my freezer.
I am going back to the basics this week to show you how I stock my fridge with simple ingredients so that I am always prepared to put a homecooked meal on the table for my family.
This week Nolan and Ledgend join me to help make my mom's homemade granola.
These Garlic Roasted Thyme Chicken Wings are super easy to make and literally finger-licking good.
We are starting in our cabinets with Spices and Herbs.
I want to help make cooking a more enjoyable experience by providing real life cooking tips, easy recipes, and practical ways to help your kitchen work for you.
I may not respect my privacy but I will respect yours.
I am looking forward to sharing more mom truth with you. Check out my latest blog and share your mom truth with me.
