Welcome to my blog!


Hello everyone! I guess I should start by saying that I’m not tech-savvy at all so expect multiple changes to the site as it grows.

Cooking has always been more of an ongoing experiment. We use whatever we have on hand, ultimately substituting, eliminating and/or adding in an ingredient.

My family has a tendency to never write anything down, as a result, much of my family’s unique creations were lost as years passed. In an attempt to preserve these experiments Growing Up Original was created.

I hope you enjoy my family’s successful (and sometimes not-so successful) inventions!


P.S. Measurements may be a bit off since we usually eyeball it. Practice makes perfect…
