About Me

Hey there!

I’m Brooke Reimer and I’m so happy you’re here. 

I’m the mom of two precious twins, the wife of a newly graduated dentist, and a career woman turned full time mama. I love finding use out of everything, and re-connecting my family to health and nourishment through from-scratch cooking and home-gardened foods. 

Here I share my recipes, tips and tricks for how to be resourceful in your home for the benefit of your family, health, and budget.

A few fun facts about me: 

  • I’m an identical twin, who married the son of an identical twin, and then a month after being married in 2019, got pregnant with fraternal twins! You could definitely say twins run in the family. 
  • I’ve always loved writing, I actually started my career as a journalist and worked briefly with The New York Times before moving on to my own freelance writing for multiple news agencies. I specialized in writing about renewable energy policy and sustainability, which is still a passion of mine!   
  • My family is a true outdoors family – I grew up backpacking, hiking, running barefoot literally everywhere. Growing up in Southern California, I had a basic farm for a home with horses, dogs, chickens, goats, sheep….even 2 cows! Not what you’d think of as the typical California lifestyle, but we loved every minute of it.  
  • I’m bilingual, I am fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) as well as English. I have an older sibling who is deaf and my parents actually taught me to sign before I could talk! My husband is trilingual, he knows ASL, English and Spanish fluently – maybe I’ll catch up to him one day. 🙂 

The Favorite Red Enchiladas 

Today I’m sharing one of those easy, could-eat-this-3x in a week kind of recipes. These are my favorite enchiladas of all time, so, naturally, they’ve made it into our regular rotation of meals. We love them!  This recipe was inspired by a New York Times chilaquiles recipe, which introduced me to cooking with rehydrated guajilo […]

Sourdough Focaccia Herb Bread

As summer draws near for us, my meal plan (or should I say my stomach) just SCREAMS for Italian food. Maybe it’s because tomatoes are ripe and in season, and homemade marinara simmering on the stovetop is nostalgic for me (my dad was the king of homemade red sauce growing up!). Or maybe it’s because […]

Sourdough Hot Cross Buns

Happy Easter! I’m excited to finally share this festive recipe with you. These hot cross buns are sweet, spiced and I can’t help but say…they’re JUST SO NICE.  There, I said it.  But really – If you’re anything like me, you’ll absolutely love this recipe and want to make it way more often than just […]
