About Me

Welcome!  How do you do?  I am so glad you have found Love and Butter.  I feel so trite in saying, I am another SAHM trying to formulate my thoughts, so that somewhere, someone (over the age of 18) will listen to them.  My life is sometimes a whirlwind of a million things that must be done, and I always have a really long list of things I want to do.  But somewhere between phonics lessons, play-dates, and grocery shopping, a lot of that gets lost.  I am in someways thankful that I started blogging, just because now I have a black and white reminder of my "want" list.  I blog mostly on the topic of real food, because in my world that is a necessity.  Then in my free time... ha! free time!...I will sew, craft, or even try to get my husband to help me build something.  At the heart of who I am lies an encourager, who yearns to listen and exhort anyone trying to make a change for the better.


On the topic of food, I am always trying to "get the junk" out of my family's diet.  But in reality I cannot just buy all of our food at the health store or spend hours in the kitchen each day.  I cook from the heart.  Food must always taste good...really good!  And we must reconcile taste to our body's needs.  I use ingredients I can pronounce and try to know where they come from.  I read the ingredient list not the nutritional facts.  I want to feel balanced and energetic and I create meals that warm the bellies and the hearts of my family and friends.


One reason I want to blog recipes and techniques, is because I want people to know it doesn't have to be that hard.  As you've heard, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  And so it is with real food.  Each time you pass the drive through and put a real meal on the table you have conquered a battle.  Each time you begin a new habit that will ensure healthy eating, one more mile down.  I would love for you to join me on this journey, of health, of awareness, and of self-reliance.  You can read how I began my own journey here.  There is a better life than prescription drugs and fast food...real life, and it begins with REAL FOOD!!


There are a lot of ways to get real food on the table without a lot of work, most of my recipes will include slow cooking, bulk cooking, or freezer meals just for the sake of convenience.  I also love to spend my time sewing, crocheting, and making other random things with my hands.  I'm so glad you're here to join me on this adventure.


Love and Butter,


Mishelle
