My name is Britney, and this is Cherie, my mom. Food is intuitive for my mom. She can make bread or muffins without
consulting a recipe. When she started changing recipes on her own to make them
healthier, that started to be a problem. No one could replicate what she was
making. Sometimes she couldn’t even replicate what she had made to her
So I encouraged her
to start a blog, and I promised to help her. That way she could share the
recipes with her kids and keep track of what she made herself. And since we
often laughed about her adventures as she brought home odd grains like teff or
spelt, we called it Grain Crazy. I’ve learned a lot about cooking as I’ve
helped her. And a lot about eating healthy. She is the genius in this blog.
While I can only claim a handful of these recipes as my own, I’ve made a lot of
them with her. As a mother of three little boys, I’m learning how to feed them
healthy food and finding which things go over well in my own home. Mom has
seven children (I’m her oldest) and she’s used all of us and my dad as her
guinea pigs to test her new recipes and ingredients.
This blog represents our food
partnership. The recipes are Mom’s, and I’m still writing for her and learning
as I go. We hope you enjoy it.
