Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!
My name is Allison, and I am an 18-year-old Christian young lady. I live in rural Missouri with my family, and our various animals/pets. I am the oldest – I have two brothers and one sweet little sister. We are all homeschooled.
I am so thankful that I am saved by Christ. I am amazed at his love and mercy to me, an undeserving sinner.
I love food. I love to read about food, cook food, shop for food, think about food, and eat food. I particularly love cooking and baking. Baking is definitely my favorite, but I *try* not to do it too much, because I end up eating what I made. 🙂
I also love health/nutrition/herbal remedies and the like. I read a lot on these subjects, and I also try various home remedies. I am currently really into making my own beauty/personal care products. I just successfully made lotion (look for that in an upcoming post), and can’t wait to make it again (with a few herbal infusions)!
I eat a semi-paleo gluten-free diet. I try to avoid all grains as well as most dairy (I still eat butter and cheese).
I am enrolled in a midwifery correspondence course, which I am enjoying so very much. It’s provided all kinds of new information, as well as new experiences.
I love the country. The peacefulness. The views. Being more “in-touch” with nature (as much as I hate to use that over-used phrase). I feel as if I have a greater appreciation for God’s lovely seasons, as I can see the dramatic changes right outside my window. I love old fences, old dirt roads, and old barns.
Over the past few years, I have been enjoying photography. I am not very good (at all!) but I have so much fun doing it. I particularly enjoy portraiture, macro photography, and (you guessed it) food photography.
I post my photos, recipes, pictures of food I make, funny things that happen, as well as just normal things (if you can call life “normal”).
So here you’ll find a few recipes (mostly gluten and grain free), lots of photos, my ramblings, and plenty of funny things that my siblings say.
I really hope you enjoy!
Oh, and drop me a note if you stop by.
