Welcome to pure & yummy!
I have a passion for good food made from scratch. I am a mother of two adorable little girls, Katelyn and Ashley, my husband’s name is Chris and we live in Orange County, CA. Since becoming a mother in 2006 I have been very passionate about the quality of food that I give to my children. As soon as they were able to eat solids I fed them homemade baby food purees (I wish I could say that I went as far as to make their baby cereal too, but I just bought the Earth’s Best Organic Oatmeal). I read most labels avoid hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, nitrates/nitrites and foods high in sodium as much as possible. I have found a lot of joy in making things from scratch and knowing exactly what I am feeding my children, my husband and myself. I am trying to instill good eating habits in my children by feeding them fruit and veggies at every meal and teaching them all about the food we eat. We have been taking in the local farmers markets and produce filled markets and my oldest daughter has such a fun time picking out all the fun fruits and veggies to eat. She also really enjoys helping mommy out in the kitchen.
I also have a joy of making and eating all things food. I love exploring the grocery stores for special ingredients and tackling new and exciting recipes. There is a simple joy when you create something delicious that is enjoyed and loved by others. As a stay at home mom, it is the simple things in life that bring me much joy. I am new to this foodie blog world, but I am very excited to see the journey that it will take me on. I hope you enjoy the journey with me as well. Bon Appetit!
