Hello and Welcome!
On The Good Hearted Woman, our focus is on tried-and-true family-friendly recipes - always thrice-tested (or more) to ensure successful results for our readers, like you!
Here you'll find new and heirloom comfort food recipes, fresh seasonal recipes for farmers market favorites, copycat recipes painstakingly replicated, traveling recipes for BBQs, picnics, parties, and potlucks, and unique original recipes - all from our kitchen to yours. (Have an heirloom or lost recipe you want us to figure out or revive? Let us know and we'll give it a shot!)
A Little about Me & Mr B
Rick and I met in choir our sophomore year in high school and were engaged by the spring of our junior year. However, the universe had different plans for us, and we eventually took separate paths - until almost three decades later, when we got a second chance.
Now, in addition to being my best friend and cheerleader, Mr B (as he is affectionately known) is indispensable to GHW. He is always ready to play sous-chef, and we have a blast testing out recipes and discovering new places together.
We hope you'll join us on our good hearted journey - and come back again soon!
Renée, The Good Hearted Woman
This website is, in many ways, a love letter to our grandchildren. Someday one of you - Kyah, Hannah, Arie, Carson, Ellie, and whomever may follow - will find this website, most likely as you're looking for an old family recipe. We hope the things we share here help you get to know and understand us a little better.
With love, Nana & Poppy ♥︎
