My name is Lizzie and Strayed from the Table is about the real stuff in life. Keeping food honest by creating seasonal recipes, making from scratch, growing our own, sourcing local and choosing ethically farmed meats. Join me on my journey of eating, cooking, exploring, organizing and providing a natural home for my family.
I am a country girl and I grew up surrounded by farming pioneers who taught me the basics of practical living and self-sufficiency. My grandmother taught me to cook traditional cakes and how to preserve. Real food has always been a part of my life; eggs came from the chooks in the backyard, milk from the dairy cow, meat from pigs, chickens and cow. Grains were grown to feed the animals and ourselves along with a veggie garden to produce amazing harvests.
Our family has just relocated to the Byron Bay Hinterland and we are trying out town life after living on our farm for three years. The goal for us now is to simplify. Keep our veggie garden small and grow what we need, meet new producers in our area and have more family time. This means more time to explore, cook and eat surrounded by friends and family.
Eating well is something I am passionate about. I love having freshly picked produce to add to meals. All my recipes are seasonal and are quick and easy to prepare, making more time to spend with my family. I have recently created a 30 MIN MEAL Cookbook with plenty of our staples to help you organize your meals throughout the week.
Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear from you, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.
