Welcome to The Bitter Side of Sweet. My name is Nancy.
-I’m a mother and wife first. Being a mother is my main job and I love it. I am so blessed to be able to stay at home and be with my kiddos and watch them grow.
-I am afraid to admit this but I am a blogger next. It’s hard to say this because it doesn’t seem real some days. It’s an amazing experience and I love sharing my passion for food with you.
So why The Bitter Side of Sweet?
I feel it represents my life in once simple line. It can be bitter but it can be sweet. The sweet moments are the ones I live for and I know that those moments will eventually out way the bitter ones.
So how did I get started?
I decided to start this blog so I could talk about and share food. For about half of a year or more before I started this blog I was taking pictures pretty regularly and posting them on our Shutterfly account so I could share with my family. As the year went on and I started to read more food blogs I realized that starting a blog was something I really wanted to do.
I originally wanted this to be a dessert blog but then realized that didn’t represent well with how our family eats. There are so many great savory recipes that we eat that how could I not share it with you? Home cooked meals are important to how our family eats but they are also easy meals.
