Hi! I’m Ruthie…
I’m a mom to 3 amazing kids and 2 dogs. We love our dogs SO much that they have their own page… check it out here- Jack and Lila
This site came to be in the summer of 2010… my Grandma Louise had a cooking show in the 60’s, which was the inspiration for my blog. You can read more about ‘What’s Cooking with Louise’ here.
I grew up cooking with my Mom and Gram in the kitchen. I learned the love of cooking and sharing recipes from both of them.
I’ve always loved to collected recipes, as I began to learn techniques to make food healthier and lower in calories, while still keeping all the flavor- I started developing recipes of my own. I loved food but it was not loving me and as a result I was quiet over weight about 17 years ago. I’ve written about my weight loss story part A and part B in hopes that maybe others’ can gain something from my experience.
Eventually, I found I needed a creative outlet AND a fun way to share my passion. So, that was the beginning of this blog.
As my site started to evolve I added some Home and Garden, DIY/Crafts, Personal/Life Style posts and a little of whatever happens to be ‘cookin’ around our house. AND oh how I love to cook. (yah, eat too!)
I’m sure I have a bazillion (yep, I know that’s not really a number) mistakes and typo’s BUT… I love this space. I’m so happy to learn, and grow, and cook, AND become great friends with all of you! I AM so grateful for the friends I’ve made, the things I’ve learned, and the ability to share some of Gods light along this blogging journey. Thanks for spending time with me- I love to have you visit! Please come back again soon.
Fall of 2013 begun a new adventure in my foodie life! I started the Culinary Arts Program at UVU, a local university. I’m excited to share my culinary journey with all of my readers. Click here to read about my Culinary School Adventures.
