I’m Tasha, a wife, mother, self-taught allergy free baker, health enthusiast and lifestyle blogger. I’m thrilled you’ve stopped by to get to know me better! Let’s get this party started!
My marriage is special to me. Marriage has been one of my biggest blessings yet. I love my husband with all of me. His character encourages me, pushes me and is an example of true grace. He’s the only human that knows me, all of me and he handles that very well! It’s an understatement to say that he makes me better, our union has made me golden.
I love being a mom! Motherhood is amazing. Though my marriage refined me, the joy of parenting my son Jayden often leaves me speechless. I take this job seriously and everything I do is carefully thought out that he may be the best version of himself. I often get compliments on the way that I care for him, my philosophy is to do whatever it takes. So far this includes hours of research and a total lifestyle change, check.
I love writing. I wrote poetry to cope with life-stressors as a youngin. Writing has always been my escape and a way for me to connect with others. My favorite style of writing is ghostwriting. It’s so fun and mysterious. When given a topic, I can connect with others and write their heart’s desire. It’s amazing, soothing and humbling.
I love Jesus! I have an incredible freedom to be myself in any setting. This is because of my love for Jesus. I understand that everyone has a “story” and I no longer view my story is shameful. I have embraced my past mistakes and continue to utilize that knowledge to make better life-choices. I am free, I aim to be who God wants me to be, period.
My family is important to me. Creating the atmosphere, traditions and defining our lifestyle is my goal and desire. I cook three meals a day, double, triple check labels, create DYI products and more because I love them and want the best for them. Jayden’s story started us off but it was my desire to go a little bit further.
I’m a researcher. I love to learn. I live to know the truth! I just have to have it. All of it! I think I’m also sort of nosey, maybe? I’m usually up late nights reading and discovering new things. My love for research continues to evolve. I will be sharing some of my research on this blog and hope that my findings ignite a fire for others to do their own research too.
I taught myself to bake. Before the birth of Jayden, my big boy! I was unable to bake a cake box mix, really! I was a horrible baker and I can’t even believe how far I’ve come with baking. I was the best at ordering baked goods and picking them up without the thought of the ingredients. However, Jayden’s allergies to gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seed and fish put a halt to that. fast forward to learning more about ingredients .. I had no luck locating gluten-free and vegan baked goods without the use of corn products or corn byproducts, sign. Many gluten-free and vegan bakeries use corn products and by-products like xanthan’s gum or other chemically made binding agents. Jay’s little tummy could not digest them properly. I wanted Jayden to enjoy what children were enjoying and I put all of my energy into making that happen. Everyone deserves a birthday cake, right? Though I cried many times in my kitchen because of crumbling cookies and tasteless cupcakes I know the drive was my love for Jayden. I keep my eyes on the prize knowing that it was possible to make treats without compromising Jayden’s restricted diet. I continued practicing, testing and believing. I later mastered re-creating and revamping recipes. Baking became a delight at our house. I am now the proud owner of Simply Healthy Treats.
The first gluten-free, vegan treat I made was out-right disgusting, but I pretended to like it so much that I convinced my husband it was good, ha.
I absolutely love the hallmark movie channel! My happy place is snuggled up watching movie after movie especially during the holiday season… love!
I’m goofy, I love to tell jokes especially sarcastic jokes, yelp!
I take pride in annoying my husband, Jonathon. It’s hilarious! It’s one of the things that is so nerve-wrecking yet loving. I believe he looks forward to it now. I’ve done it so much that our son does it to me now :-/
I have a love/hate relationship with grocery stores. I always dread going but love to go at the same time…Sign
