So, what have I been up to?
I catered a wedding shower for a room filled with beautiful women celebrating in a way only women can; with generosity, kindness, and unconditional love. No mean girls in this bunch. Just beautiful, strong, supportive women celebrating with the bride-to-be and making memories.
I am excited to announce that our new steak seasoning is being featured in the June 2019 summer crate from Cultivate Central Illinois. I am so proud to be a part of this awesome list of women. Cultivate Central Illinois features products that are handmade and homegrown in Central Illinois. The businesses they feature are owned and operated by women. Read More.
A big part of sustainable living is a ‘nothing goes to waste’ philosophy. A few weeks ago, we lost one of our oldest and biggest oak trees and then a few days later another storm rolled in and we lost a cedar. To see these mighty trees fall was heart wrenching.
Yet, out of tragic comes beauty. I have an upcoming wedding that I am catering and I decided to make a cake stand out of the cedar. Made with the couple’s vast record collection in mind, after the wedding the box can be turned upside-down and become storage for albums. But more about that in a few weeks.
I don’t know how it happens, but time just starts slipping away. All of a sudden I had several projects started with deadlines approaching. Hence, the time-off. I had to get caught up. One of the projects I can now check off my “to-do” list. The greenhouse is completed. Stay tuned for the final reveal.
Change is Coming!
I have decided to do something completely unheard of in the world today, I am unplugging. I realized I was spending too much time on other social sites liking, commenting, replying, and depleting my resources. I was not spending enough time here on my own product.
I realize I am
closing slamming the door on becoming a social influencer and to that I say, hallelujah! That had never been my intent. My goal has always been to share my recipes and my passion for sustainable living, and I can do that best right here on this platform. By turning off other social media I can concentrate on the things I love. One of those things is YOU! If you followed me on Instagram, follow me here.
Lastly, I moved the market from The Wacky Spoon and gave it it’s own legs. I felt the market was getting lost in all the dirty dishes from cooking. It now has its own voice and platform. Go forth grasshopper and make me proud. Check it out!
Expect new recipes starting Monday!
