Farm to Table Fanatic

Hi! I'm Nora and I love to share fresh & easy family meals on my blog Savory Nothings. Before I had a baby I used to think moms completely exaggerate when they talk about not having time to cook. And then Baby Savory came along and had a slightly different opinion on things. Because I grew up on a farm, using fresh and seasonal ingredients has always been very important to me. Now I just incorporate all the fruit and vegetables we buy at the farmer's market into simpler recipes like sheet pan dinners and one bowl cakes instead of slaving over a seven course fine dining experience. I pride myself in cooking (mostly) from scratch with fresh produce while keeping dinner time stress-free. There’s always a fussy toddler at my feet - so I know my garden-fresh recipes are 100% easy and foolproof! They are tested and approved by me and my picky family. Did I say picky? I meant wonderful.
