Why I will blog...as if my life isn't crazy enough!
I know, I know, It's a flavorful life is a cheesy spin off of "It's a Wonderful Life", but it's the best I could do. :) So, here is why I have started this dandy little food blog. I have always enjoyed cooking. Even as a kid I would create and make up recipes when my parents weren't home. (I use to pretend I was sick so I could stay home from school on days my mom would work...shhh) I can't say that those creations were very tasty, but hey, it got me started! Recently I had my second child. I decided that I needed to start eating healthier to get rid of the good ole baby belly. :) Also, after watching Food Inc. I decided I needed to try to cut the crud out of our daily food and go as organic or natural as possible. So in order to create healthier and tastier meals I have started tweaking recipes to fit our life style. I also have NEVER followed a recipe! I just don't usually think things taste quite right so I take stuff out and add stuff in. The hardest part about this blog will be actually measuring things out in order to pass them on to you! I will start off with a few recipes that I have been given and tweaked, or a recipe I have made up. My goal is to create meals that are healthy and yummy!! If you have a recipe you would like tweaked or if you have a favorite food you would like me to look into making a recipe for, please comment and I will do my best to get to them. I am a mommy of a soon to be 4 year old and a 5 month old, so who knows how long it will take me to get em out.
