I’m a blogger based in Iowa who loves to cook, create, and travel with my family. Although I grew up on the East Coast, I have lived all of my adult life in the Midwest, thanks to my husband who is originally from Illinois.
When we had our daughter we decided that Iowa was the place to raise our little family and we have been exploring the state, and the entire Midwest, ever since.
I especially love all things related to food, family, and fun.
I’ve always felt that I see the world differently than most and this site allows me to share my perspective. Being different comes in handy as a blogger and I thrive on that.
I like to share unique travel destinations, healthy versions of traditional recipes, and homemaking tips but you can find a variety of useful articles throughout the site.
While I moved a lot as a kid, I didn’t get to see the places I wanted to see or the way that I wanted to see them.
So with this blog, I am sharing my unique perspective on travel and highlighting all of the interesting experiences I have all over the country.
What Do I Mean By Unique Travel Destinations?
In an effort to keep my travel ideas unique, I often feature popular destinations in a new way that intrigues my readers like when I explored Las Vegas in an RV and when I shared the unexpected things you will see during a visit to Yellowstone National Park.
One of my most popular features is a series of four posts highlighting the best rock n’ roll history locations in the midwest.
What Kind of Recipes Do I Share?
This includes information on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet which has helped any people heal themselves with food.
Most of these recipes fit well into a Specific Carbohydrate Diet so be sure to check out both if you are looking for a variety of gluten-free recipes that are easy to make.
What Do I Do For Fun?
Seriously, I actually enjoy cleaning and making my own cleaning products, it is a great stress reliever for me. I also enjoy working out, running with my hound dog Daisy, and spending time with my family to unwind.
I also share how to use those fresh fruits and veggies in your kitchen, like this post that shows you how to make tomato sauce from Roma tomatoes.
I also enjoy doing DIY projects, home improvements, and upcycling garage sale finds. On special occasions, I go to concerts but I am an introvert so I usually avoid crowds whenever possible.
Sometimes I power through the anxiety in order to enjoy a great experience like when my daughter and I got to see LS Dunes first show and she got into the media pit to shoot My Chemical Romance at Riot Fest.
If you want to know more, just ask.
I read through all of the comments and try to respond to as many as I can.
