One of my joys of being a wife and mother is to give my family good, delicious food. I love cooking from scratch and baking with sourdough. I love to make quick and easy meals and recipes. I hope you will enjoy these recipes and find joy in making them for your family!

Behind the recipes

Hi, I’m Alissa

I’m so glad you are here! 

Just a little about me… I’m married to my best friend, Aaron, and we have five boys. We have homeschooled all of them from the very beginning and I can’t believe our oldest will be graduating soon! My favorite things to do are care for them and our home. 

I grew up in a large family. I was the second oldest of 11 kids. All I ever wanted to be was a wife and mother. And I truly treasure the life the Lord has given me. 

I love baking and just being able to give all my guys lots of yummy food! Staying home and living a slow, simple life, is my favorite. I also love to do DIY projects… sometimes to my husband’s chagrin. HA! But really, he’s super handy and the muscle behind our projects and loves it… because he loves me. 

I hope you’ll stick around and join me in the pursuit of homemaking!
