In My Kitchen Doing What I Love!

Hey there, friends! I am Gina Abernathy, and I’m glad you stopped by!

I’m on a mission to make your dinner table a place of conversation, joy, and ultimate flavors. Here, you’ll find a collection of family-friendly recipes, Southern recipes, quick dinner ideas, and easy homemade recipes that my family loves, and they are sure to become loved by yours.

Home at Cedar Springs Farm is where I write about things that inspire me. This blog has a nice mix of ideas, tips, inspiration, everyday life, and recipes scattered across the pages.

I started this recipe blog to organize and share my recipes with my family and friends. I am from a big family. We like to cook. We like to gather together. We like to EAT. Each recipe is family-tested and approved. I don’t cook a lot of fancy food, but it’s good food.  I try to create easy recipes that are family-friendly and can bring your family together to your dinner table at the end of the day.

Not only do I have a passion for cooking, but I also have a passion for life! I enjoy doing a little bit of everything from crafting, decorating our farmhouse, canning vegetables, saving money, traveling, and DIY projects. This blog is a reflection of my life.

I’m sure you might be wondering how I came up with the blog “Home at Cedar Springs Farm.” Well.. Cedar Springs Farm is the name of my farm here in Alabama. Yes, I live on a “real” farm with many animals, including a milk cow, and we gather eggs from our chickens. True country life!

My Journey:

As a home cook, I’ve always believed that great meals don’t need to be complicated. I’ve spent years creating stress-free, time-efficient recipes that allow you to savor the flavor of dinner without the fuss.

Family Approved Meals:

With a family of my own, I understand the importance of delicious, family-approved, kid-friendly dishes that bring smiles to the dinner table. I’ve got you covered with comforting dishes, Southern recipes, and budget-friendly meals that won’t break the bank.

Huge Flavors, Simple Ingredients:

My recipes contain simple ingredients that are easy to find in your local grocery store. I believe everyday food should be delicious and full of flavor.

Dinner Time:

I’ll take ordinary food and turn it into extraordinary dishes for your family. Turn dinner time into an enjoyable time, one dish at a time. Each recipe has passed the toughest taste test at my dinner table before being added to this collection of recipes for you.

Homemade Cooking:

Turn your kitchen into homemade goodness with made-from-scratch recipes to mouthwatering desserts. Sift through the pages and find a dish or two your family will love. You are in the right spot if you love Southern recipes.

Whether you’re a busy parent, a full-time worker, or a stay-at-home mom, I’ve got your back with weeknight dinner inspirations that will elevate your meals. Dinnertime magic awaits, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

I hope Home at Cedar Springs Farm inspires you to live your best life.
