About Me

I write this blog from an old farmhouse at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, which I share with my sister. We have a little flock of chickens for eggs, and a variety of vegetables in the garden. My favorite meals come entirely from my own backyard.

Of course, I also enjoy tackling complicated recipes and special projects — just so you don’t expect everything to be simple and/or local.

I’m a self-taught cook and photographer, and fairly new to gardening and keeping chickens as well. So don’t count on me for sage advice. But I do hope you’ll learn a few things from my mistakes, and enjoy reading about my adventures along the way.

    How might I be able to send you a message/post with photos? I just read “how to know before they crow”. I am hoping that my “Raquel” isn’t a “Rocky”. I think I know the truth… but I’m holding on to any glimmer of hope that she really is a she…
    I also want to know what came of your “Crispy”! boy or girl?
    So cute!
    Love your blog!

      Hi Bridget!
      Thanks for your kind comments. Feel free to send pics to Sara[at]homegrowngourmet[dot]org and I’ll be happy to weigh in on Raquel! PS Crispy is all girl and still ruling the roost 🙂
