About Me

It took forever just to get one shot where Joshua wasn't looking at the ground. I wish we had somebody behind the camera to call his attention there!

Thanks for visiting Cook At Home Mom.

I’m Laura. I’m a wife, a mom of two (don’t mind the old photo above), and a semi-vegetarian. Our family picked up and moved to the Lynchburg, VA area in 2013 back. Depending on the month, I’m either ultra dedicated or completely lazy about fitness. I’m always on a budget, and I’m a total germophobe. I’ve tried pretty much every diet out there, and here’s what works best for me: No hard and fast rules, just an overall goal of health and wellness. Many of my recipes are Whole30 or Paleo compliant, and that’s because I truly believe in balance and doing what works for you. We feel our best when I eat clean, so that’s how we eat (most of the time).

I really love food. I love to cook it, eat it, and serve it. I try to eat as much organic, local, healthy, and unprocessed ingredients as I can… although I definitely have to have french fries and cookies every now and then! I refuse to spend tons of money on fancy gadgets and appliances – in fact, my kitchen is a fairly standard apartment set up. No bells, no whistles. I definitely don’t cook food with ingredients you can’t pronounce and can’t find in a typical market. I guess I’m just your run of the mill mom and home cook!

I’d love to hear from you, too! Please connect with me on instagram or send me an email at cookathomemom@gmail.com. Thanks for your support.
