Back in May of 2010, I started a blog named, The Girly Girl Cooks. My first blog was created as a place for me on the Internet to document my attempts of learning how to cook while attending college. I wrote about my experiments with food, recipes, and different cuisines all while finding myself and winning the heart (and stomach) of my long time college boyfriend.
It’s been 5 years since I started The Girly Girl Cooks and now I find myself wanting a fresh start. I am no longer a college girl trying to impress her boyfriend’s palate while dealing with the stresses and joys of college life. Now I am a farm wife, nurse and new mother to a wonderful baby boy. I live on the Hi-Line in the gorgeous state of Montana. My priorities in the kitchen have become more focused on creating healthy and fresh meals that are delicious and nutrious for my family, rather than anything and everything that tastes good despite how healthy or unhealthy it may be.
Living in a rural community with few resources brings many challenges in the kitchen. The ingredients in the grocery stores in this area are basic with very few “fancy” ingredients. For example, cumin and smoked paprika are rare finds in the spice department. So if I can find the ingredients used in my recipes, then anyone can find it!
Over the next few weeks I’ll be transferring my favorite recipes from The Girly Girl Cooks and placing them here on Hi-Line Healthy. So be on the look out for some really fun and tasty recipes that are near and dear to me.
I look forward to sharing these recipes and new life experiences with you!
