Welcome to OhMyGoodyGoodness! I’m Bekah, and this blog is a look inside my multi-personality kitchen…it’s a cross between a wanna-be 1950’s housewife – who is always dressed in a fancy dress with perfectly done “nest” and make-up, sipping on a perfectly blended cocktail while cooking and entertaining her friends…
…and the stay-at-home, home school mom of two – who is sometimes still in her pajamas when she is in the kitchen cooking dinner, hair a mess and no make-up, rushing around to get a hot meal on the table before the love of her life walks through the door from a hard day’s work, the house is a mess and the kids are “cruisin’ for a bruisin’!”
As if things weren’t crazy enough around here, my husband and I also have our own business and I squeeze in time to handle all of the office work.
In early 2010, when I was teetering on the edge of insanity, I decided that I needed to find something for myself to do. I didn’t want it to be something that would take me away from my family, but something that would help me get my “groove” back! I saw a quote from Julia Child that really got me thinking, “Find something you are passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
After putting some thought into it, I decided that “something” was going to be cooking. I could learn new things and find new recipes while at the same time feeding my family! I became moderately obsessed with it and found such joy in it and it made everyone around me want to “flip!”
When my husband and I met in February of 1995, I had no clue how to cook. Really, I was a real “closet case.” Over the years I taught myself how and slowly but surely I got better at it. Now, instead of eating most meals from a box off the grocery store shelf, we eat gourmet mostly every night. Not everything is a hit with all 5 of us, but it sure is fun trying so many new recipes!
I have a collection of original recipes as well as recipes I have found on many other blogs and in cook books. I hope you enjoy taking a walk on the wild side with me, learning new things in the kitchen and “getting a big tickle” at the craziness of my family along the way!
