Hi! Thanks for visiting.
My name is Mary, and I am the blogger behind Oh That's Good! I live in the beautiful northern California foothills with my husband Michael and terrier Tucker. I am a former nurse, former hobby farmer, former vintage shop owner, and current food blogger.
I am at the stage of life where I start checking items off my Bucket List. I never really thought I'd have a Bucket List, but when I was given a life expectancy of 6-29 months, I decided I needed to make one. That was almost twenty years ago!
Back then, faced with my own mortality, I began thinking about all the things I had hoped to do when I retired. I always wanted to raise chickens like my grandmother. Soon, four chickens on a city lot, became 99 chickens, 2 donkeys, 4 fainting goats, and 4 emus on a five-acre hobby farm in the country. In 2009 I started blogging about cooking and hobby farming. Several years later, health issues forced us to re-home the animals and move into town.
Eventually I opened a small vintage shop, checking off another Bucket List item. I still dabble in all things vintage today, but find myself drawn more to food blogging.
I love to cook and create recipes and Michael and Tucker are my willing taste testers. In addition to creating original recipes, I like to try recipes from cookbooks, food blogs and food magazines. I am a bit of a food magazine addict and it takes much willpower to resist them at the grocery checkout. When I find a good recipe, I share it here, giving credit of course!
I hope you find something here that you like. Please know that the fact you are here makes my day. It checks a big-ticket-item off my Bucket List. I hope you visit Oh That's Good! again. If I'm not here, it could mean that the doctor was correct, just off on his timing, or I have started blogging about crochet and kittens. Either way, my life has been blessed.
Mary, Michael, & Tucker
