About Debbie T @ thatsjustme

I live in Massachusetts with my husband and two rat terriers. My blog started as a way to document my weight loss journey and it has morphed into a home for my recipes, gardening tips, reviews, and frugal budgeting. I love to make a lot of our food from scratch, and we try to eat as healthily as possible. Grinding my own grain was the next step. The Grain Mill Wagon gave me a wonderful opportunity to experience grinding my own flour and I'm so grateful for the learning experience. I've read a lot of excellent recipes and found some unique ideas! I love my grain mill now and will continue to use it, especially for unique flours like quinoa.
