Hi! I'm Hannah
Wife, homemaker, adventurer, urban homesteader, and Christ follower.
At the beginning of 2020 and this whole Covid thing, I started learning about traditional cooking.

Along the way, I learned a significant deal about the body’s ability to heal itself as well as the negative influence of our instant gratification culture on the health of our guts. I certainly have a lot to learn, as I try to get to the bottom of things like migraines, but I hope some of what I’m learning can help you. My goal is to inspire you on your journey whether in seeking health, learning to be a better home-maker, or getting started with food preservation.
