Hi, welcome to the country. I’m glad you’re here. My name is Jackie and this blog is where I share my love of food. I am in constant pursuit of the perfect recipe and hardly a day goes by that you won’t find me in the kitchen. I am by no means an expert on anything you’ll find here. I am a work in progress and there’s lot’s of work yet to be done.
When I was 20, I met my husband-to-be at the local vet office, the place where our two world’s would meet. I was from the city and he was from the country. I worked for the vet and he needed the vet. It wasn’t long before he caught my eye and I caught his and we quickly married and had 3 boys; Ryan 21, Tyler 19, and Jordan 17. Cooking for them has been my life and my joy.
We live on a farm and life is busy but that’s what happens when you marry a farmer and I wouldn’t change it.
Nothing about this blog was measured, researched or planned in advance. In fact, I knew almost nothing about blogs or blogging or how difficult it would be to do this. I now have great admiration for people who do it all and do it so well. Most days when I’m ready to throw in the towel, people like you will stop by and leave me a comment or a thumbs up and then suddenly I think that maybe I can manage one more post.
Why am I blogging? Mostly I hope that as my family grows (which they are doing ever so quickly) and my boys start to cook for themselves, that they will be able to turn to this site for some guidance and insight into the recipes they were raised on. Secondly I hope that it will connect me with you. I love to meet new people and I’ve come to learn that the people in this crazy world of food blogging are genuine, sincere and very caring individuals. I love your visits and your comments so feel free to leave me a little note. It will really make my day;).
I’d like to thank you for visiting me. While you’re here, tie your apron, preheat the oven, hang your hat or pour the lemonade. It doesn’t matter if you’re here for the photos, the recipes or the company … I’m just glad you’re here. Welcome to the crazy, country life of “This Sweet Wife”.
