Aimee the blogger


Aimée Wimbush-Bourque is the editor, main writer, chief cook and bottle washer around here. She’s wife to Danny, mom of three kids, boss of two cats, and farmer of six brown hens. A former chef-turned modern homesteader and food blogger, Aimee chronicles her family food life from the dining room table surrounded by toy cars and cookie crumbs.

Aimée could never cook without good quality spices, olive oil and sea salt and loves dabbling in gardening, foraging, and canning. When she’s not scrolling through Instagram, that is.
