A Note About My Recipes

Why I sometimes don’t post exact amounts of ingredients…

These would probably fall more under the category of “no recipe recipes.” For baking, I will post exact amounts as those are more important than in cooking.

We didn’t want the bustle of a city, we wanted nature and solitude, a chance to connect as a family.
