The Woman Behind the keyboard…..
Am I the only one that thinks it’s weird to spend time creating an “about me” page? I mean seriously, who really reads these things? The other odd part for me is that, this blog is about me. It’s about my passions, my life’s struggles and victories. It’s about the things that I enjoy, and don’t enjoy. So by reading this blog, you will get to know me.
However, if you are reading this, then you probably want to learn a bit about me and this site. So without further ado, I give you, the woman behind the keyboard.
My name is Rebecca, the creator of this site, the writer behind the blog, the chef behind the recipes, and the crazy person behind some fun ideas. I was born in San Diego, moved to Missouri when I turned 9, and finally moved to the beautiful state of Colorado in 2015.
I created this site for several reasons. Like many folks, I need an outlet for my thoughts and ideas. Crazy From Scratch is that outlet. I also want to take the things I have learned in life to help others. Maybe you are going through a struggle that I’ve already been through. Perhaps by sharing my experience, you will learn from my mistakes and do better!
The two things I am most passionate about are creating things and learning. I know that’s vague, but when I look at the core of the things I enjoy doing, that is the common ground. As I post articles on this site, I will tell you about experiences in life that I’ve grown and learned from. I’ll also show you things I have created and teach you how to do the same.
My primary focus will be all things culinary. In my early 20’s a spark started within for culinary arts. I was married at the time and spent a lot of time cooking. From there I decided to go to culinary school and enjoyed every bit of it. I may not have a “career” in the kitchen, but when I’m not at work, you are likely to find me in the kitchen.
Other topics that will be covered in this blog will be broken down into Personal, Home, and Adventures. Personal will cover anything from mental to physical health as well as finances. Home will cover all things related to the home, both in and out. I will share tips I learn as I raise chickens, gardening, organizational tips, and DIY crafts for in the house. Adventures will be my fun space. Where I share adventures that I go on, such as hiking, camping, or maybe even a motorcycle ride in the mountains. I will also share tips, tutorials, and any other informational items that may help you out on your own adventures.
So, why the name, “Crazy from Scratch”? Because if I had to sum up my personality, life, and everything I say or do into one word, it would be crazy. My friends, family, and most definitely my boyfriend, would all agree. And I’m sure as you read this blog, you’ll see bits and pieces of my silly and slightly crazy nature as well.
On top of that, I believe all things in life are best understood when you start from scratch. I know it’s not practical to make everything, everyday, from scratch. But trying that dish one time from scratch, will teach you whats involved in making it. Building that shelf or doll house will give you a deeper appreciation for the craftsmanship that went into that dining table you bought, or the house you live in. And sewing or knitting a simple dish cloth will give you a taste of what it takes to create the clothes you wear, the curtains in the window, and the sheets on your bed.
Why Crazy From Scratch? Why NOT?
