Ilina on the North Carolina #farmtopork tour

I am a neat freak who can’t function amid clutter. I recently bought a label maker and spent a Saturday morning labeling my spices. Sometimes I just open the spice drawer to revel in the organization.

I have two sons ages 9 and 7 (hence the Dirt & Noise). One is gentle, affectionate, and yummy like his dad. The other is just like me – sassy and smart, but he’s such a whiz with numbers that I wonder how he’s mine.

I am a progressive left leaning girl who has a soft spot for kids and animals (but not snakes). I love all things food related and wonder where my metabolism went when I turned 40.

You won’t find high fructose corn syrup in my house, but you will find a secret stash of chocolate and gummi bears.

I’d rather walk than run. I exercise because it’s good for me, not because I love it.

I luckily have a dream husband who really loves me in spite of myself.

I spend half my time home with kids and the other half working as a freelance writer and marketing consultant. I feel like I half-ass both sometimes because 24 hours in a day are just not enough.

I can’t remember the last time I slept 8 hours. In a row.
