Mommy Made From Scratch

About Me

At the Dayton Air Force Museum in 2011

I am a stay at home mom of two adorable children, Tatiana, age 5 and Asher, age 3. I have been married to my husband, Jon for 8 years now.

Notice the baby drool on my sleeve?

I have a degree in Photography but have put that part of my life on hold as I stay at home with my kids. I love to incorporate my photography passion and skills into my blog. I love to do most all things creative which now includes cooking. I occasionally blog over at my photo blog, Heidi Zapolski Photography.

I began this blog as a way to learn how to cook for my family without the help of boxed or frozen meals. I am constantly learning new things. I hope this site will help me as well as anyone reading this to learn how to fix meals in a healthier way with less preservatives and more fresh ingredients. Not all of my recipes will be healthy; after all, I do love desserts! But regardless of health reasons, I also want to know how to have better control over what flavors go into our meals and to provide a larger variety in what we eat everyday. I invite you to come along with me in my journey as I learn to cook with the ingredients and (hidden) talents that God has given me!
