Home Cooked Harvest
Welcome friends! I’m Tristin, the food lover behind Home Cooked Harvest. As a busy mom, I enjoy recipes that are quick and fuss-free, especially on week days. So, I wanted to bring you some meal ideas like these easy cheese enchiladas that are easy enough to make on those nights when you are running low on time, as well as some that can be utilized when you have more time on your hands like these impressive stuffed poblano peppers.
I feel very fortunate to have been brought up in a multi-cultural family and getting to eat foods from around the world. So I hope that you enjoy the variety of worldly foods that I bring you and I encourage you to try something new. You never know you just might find a new favorite.
Here at HomeCookedHarvest.com I try to cook as healthy as I can while still keeping our meals delicious and for the most part, family friendly. I try to squeeze in as many fruits and veggies as I can into our home cooked meals. I am also an avid believer of living life in balance, and that’s why dessert is a definite must-have around here. Luckily, I have a love of baking and as a result, you will find lots sweet recipes here also!!
I really enjoy using kitchen appliances that make cooking a little easier (and more fun!). I especially love my air fryer, it cooks food so much faster than traditional methods. Try this air fryer chicken breast or london broil. My slow cooker and my instant pot are also both near and dear to my heart.
Joining me on the Home Cooked Harvest team is my #1 recipe taste tester, (my husband), and our two little chefs-in-training. My kids enjoy helping me in the kitchen especially if I’m making something sweet. It’s guaranteed that there will be spoon licking, flour on every surface, and plenty of dishes. But, those are the days I cherish most of all, those beautiful chocolate covered memories!!
Some Fun Facts about Me:
- I love to travel, explore new places, and eat the local foods.
- Naps are a must.
- I’m an animal lover!! I volunteer with a local animal rescue and foster kittens in my own home. We also have 4 rescue animals. A black lab/chow mix named Bailey (recently passed away, Feb 22 2021) and 3 cats – Toe Fuzz, Mystery, and Sparrow.
- I am originally from California, but now live in the South in beautiful Northern Alabama.
- I dream of someday living on a lot of land, like acres and acres!!
I’d love to hear from you! No, really I would!! You can reach out to me through email with concerns or questions. Also, please feel free to leave comments on any of my recipes to let me know your opinions and tweaks. Follow along with me on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
I hope these home cooked recipes will bring your family and friends together at your table. If you need me, you’ll find me making a mess in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy! Happy Cooking!!
