I’m Sarah. I’m a super busy, stay at home, work from home, homeschooling mom of 7 children. Wow, that’s a mouthful, isn’t it?
I’ve been married to my amazing husband Ryan for 20+ years and he’s one of the reasons that this blog has gotten any legs of it’s own. Back when I was a young mom, in my 20’s, my husband began complaining when I announced my plan to serve spaghetti again for the bazillionth time. He wasn’t really one to complain about his food too much, so I took notice and realized, that every time I didn’t know what I was going to cook, it was spaghetti. Again.
I decided that if I was ever going to get out of that spaghetti rut, I’d have to use my crockpot, because I’d never remember to get dinner started in time if I didn’t use that. (Yeah, I’m a little distractable.)
Ryan and I have 7 kids. 2 of them are adults and in college already. Sometimes I feel like life is flying by as they get older and older by the minute.
Not only am I their mom, I’m also their teacher (we homeschool), friend, cook, chauffeur, and house cleaner (but maybe I should hire one?!)! They keep me B U S Y!
I am so thankful that God has given me the opportunity to stay at home with my children so that I don’t have to miss a thing!
I’m a somewhat disorganized, fly by the seat of my pants type of gal. I get sidetracked easily (thus the name) but love sharing about our crazy and chaotic life and all of the food that we eat on a regular basis.
Our family loves to camp, travel, eat and play A LOT. When we’re not traveling far away, you’ll find us at our local lake, basking in the sunshine and camping in our camper only a few miles from home. Sometimes we wish there was more time to explore everything, but as time goes by, we’ll continue exploring all that we can. We may even share bits and pieces of our journey here with you.
Meet our family on one of our recent trips:
On this site, you’ll find lots of easy recipes. I definitely lean toward doing a lot of slow cooker and Instant Pot recipes. (I’m one of those moms who likes to just toss dinner in the pot and have it magically ready by the end of the day.) In fact, my site became known for my easy Crockpot Meals after I published a bunch of Freezer to Slow Cooker Recipes.
Because of the popularity of my Crockpot Freezer Meals, lots of my email subscribers started requesting a monthly meal plan. Finally, we were able to provide them with just that and launched our regular and low carb Freezer to Slow Cooker Meal Plan Subscription. We would love to have YOU join us any time you need to get out of your dinner rut.
