My mom

I know that I have a great group of followers out there and I wanted to tell you why I haven't posted and why it might be a little while before I do again. My sweet mom passed away suddenly from Acute Leukemia on Friday. We had no idea,there were no warning signs and when we found out, it was too late. It still doesn't seem real and I can't believe that this is happening. I love her so much and miss her more than words can describe. She encouraged me to do a food blog. She is the one who taught me how to cook. She made the best food, healthy and delicious and is famous for her cookies. I know it will take time to heal, I know that we will be together again someday and I know that families are forever. My life is better because of her and she made me the woman, wife, mother and person that I am.

I know that life will go on, we will be strong as a family and I will have the desire to make yummy food and share it all with you. Please don't give up on me, I am here and will be back soon.

Hiking in Scotland. I was pregnant with my first little girl. I always wanted to be a mom, just like her. I love you mom.

Making her yummy salsa last summer. I will make it always.


  1. Oh, Britney,

    Words can't describe how sorry and saddened we are for you and your family at this time. She raised the most talented and amazing daughters. Because I know you and Brianne, I feel like I knew her too. You both have the most wonderful quailites and she REALLY taught you how to cook. What an amazing person she is and I know, as you said, you will be with her again someday.

    Thank you for sharing your love with us and Zak all these years. I know Zak will miss her very much, along with Mary Kay, Walt, and Ben. We are truly sorry and we love you all very much.

  2. So sorry to hear about your loss. Take Care and don't worry about not posting. We have plenty of recipes to keep us busy!

  4. I love these pictures Britney! Your Mom is the best!

  5. I am so, SO sorry! My little sister knows Brianne and helped me to find your blog. I am sorry.

  6. I got to hug Brianne when I came home from Idaho a few weeks back, and I feel like I should send a hug via cyber-space for you. I only got to meet your mom for a moment, but I feel like I know her better through you and Brianne. The two of you are amazing.
    You and your family are still in our prayers.

  7. I'm so sorry for your loss! I haven't checked your blog in ages (I don't think I ever commented, but I couldn't not comment)
