Hey, y’all!

My name is Lisa (AKA Farmer Franny). I live on a new and growing farm in Texas. Here we believe tex-mex is a basic food group and our trucks are part of the family. I’m a wife, a mom, and a Registered Nurse by trade. I have a passion for cooking seasonal fresh foods for my family. They are picky eaters, and so am I!

I have an amazing husband and father to our semi-blended family of 6 kids. All 6 are unique and beautiful in their own way, but through and through, we always meet back in the kitchen where we all love to be.

Why am I Farmer Franny?

I grew up in Dallas and when I say Dallas, I don’t mean the suburbs or outskirts, I mean Dallas. I grew up middle-class with loving parents in a great neighborhood. There were trees to climb and roads to ride bikes on. But, as I grew older I sought for a simple-king-of-living. I wanted to raise my kids to think for themselves, entertain themselves, seek creativity and invention, and not be influenced by all the rift-raft that the city holds. That’s right folks! This city girl is country-fied and I love it! I love the small town we live in and the space we grow on. I may never go back to the city 😉

What kind of farm do you have?

On our farm, we have many animals including cows, donkeys, pigs, chickens, dogs, and cats. I grow a garden, sometimes year-round, and love to eat from it. Fresh food is where it’s at! Moreover, we grow flowers of all types and varieties and sell them to local vendors and stores. Every day, there is a lot happening at the farm. Yet, we might be more of a funny farm than anything.

Why the name FARMER FRANNY?

It all started working the night shift in the ICU. My co-workers loved to hear about the farm and family, so that’s all I talked about. Therefore, they coined the name “Farmer Franny” to me! I really chose to embrace their endearment. I love the name Farmer Franny because it reminds me not to take myself too seriously.  

What kind of website is this?

Well, mainly a food blog. I love everything farm and family can be hard to pick just one topic. Food is a huge passion of mine. I love sharing kid-friendly new and fresh recipes tickles my fancy. If it brings the family together, I’m all about it.

Some would ask, “Are you trying to quit Nursing?” My reply is NOOOO! I’ll always be a nurse. I’m just doing something I’m passionate about 🙂

What I believe in.

Simplicity!! Dialing it down to where we came from and enjoying the simple things. Do you ever feel like everything is consuming you and all you do is spend money and run in circles to keep up? I can’t do it anymore. I have found it’s more important to do the things that mean the most to you, not just survive. So here I am, out in the country enjoying sunrises, sunsets, and the birds singing their song.

I also believe you should do the things you love and that excites you every day. First of all, this life is full of unexpected things, enjoy them, embrace them, and cherish each step God has sprinkled into your life. We only have today, so love what you have. Therefore, let today be the bacon bits of your salad.
