Everything You Wanted to Know About Way More Homemade

I'm Donna. I am a working outside the home wife and mother to 2 children: Sarah, the princess (8) and Nathan, my little man (4). I have been married to my college sweet-heart for over 14 years. I work mostly part-time as an administrative assistant for a financial planner and full time as a wife, mother, school volunteer, occasional Bible study leader and VBS director among other hats that I wear. But most of all I am striving to be a woman of purpose. And that being to know my God and Savior more intimately and deeply each day.

Way More Homemade
This blog has gone through several changes and while the internet address has always been waymorehomemade, it started out with the title "Did I Say That Out-Loud?" Which, if you know me, is quite appropriate. However, in an effort to create some blog cohesiveness, I changed the title. Read about where the Way More Homemade name comes from here.

I really do like this title because, like my brownies, my life doesn't just come from a box. Homemade implies that it takes more time, more attention, and it's the "real deal" as a friend put it. For certain, God has had to spend more time and attention on me to make me closer to the real deal than I would like to admit. But I have seen that I need to allow Him to make my life from scratch, and not allow our culture or society to try to hand me a boxed life.

If you haven't noticed, this isn't a Martha Stewart, I sew all my kids clothes, grow my own vegetables, cook an entirely organically grown meal every day kind of blog. It's my life that's Way More Homemade these days. And while that's how I prefer my food, I do live in the real world, and Way More Homemade is about so much more than just food.

The tagline says it all. This is where Faith, Family and Food collide.

The Recipes

All that said, I do still talk about food a lot. I recently started posting recipes on a separate blog so that they would all be in one place and easier to find and search through. Visit The Recipes here or see the link at the top of the page. And don't miss a single edition of Foodie Friday. It's just a fun little thing I do and I usually post a recipe (or two) (or three).
