Hi and thanks for visiting.
I am Mary, a retired nurse, living the California retirement life with my husband Michael, and terrier Tucker.
I grew up in a home with my Mom, Dad, and five sisters. My mother cooked a lot of food for a family of eight. Unfortunately, I learned what I lived, and throughout my adult life I cooked as if I had eight mouths to feed. In fact, I had only four, and now just two.
Cooking this way results in lots of leftovers, high grocery bills, a stuffed freezer and waste. In recent years I have made a concerted effort to change my bad habits, buy less and cook for the number of mouths in the house. Dogs not necessarily excluded!
Since the days when this was a hobby farm blog I have been sharing my favorite recipes. I am busy working my way back through 13 years of recipes, tweaking and adjusting them for two servings, with an easy option of adjusting up to four or six servings with the one click!
If you're cooking for two (or for four or for six) we have something you'll find delish!
Mary, Michael, & Tucker
