Getting Social with #UBP14

Several years ago when I first started out on twitter, I discovered a hashtag called “UBP.” After doing a little investigating, I discovered that it was a blog party of sorts hosted by 5MinutesForMom and joined in! I found some fantastic new blogs, met great people, and to this day still follow some of them. Each year I have tried to make a point to join in. It’s always nice to discover new people and blogs!



For those of you who have just found me via the UBP14, let me share a little about myself.

I’m Constance Smith…


…a “seasoned” army wife, shutterbug, homeschool mom, artist and blogger. I am the mother of three nearly-grown kids and in the summer of 2013 made what will most likely be our last PCS, from Alaska to Alabama. Now living in the land of sweet tea and rocket scientists I have begun putting down some roots for the first time, and looking towards life after the army. Besides my passion for food, I love hiking, kayaking, geocaching and other outdoor activities including hunting – you’ll find a few wild game recipes here.

I have maintained a food-related website since 1998, and moved to blogging in 2006. Portions of my content have been published in local and national print, including Home Gourmet Magazine, the Fairbanks New-Miner, the Alaska Post, Military Spouse Magazine, and Keeping It Home Magazine. I have a passion for teaching so if you ever have a question, shoot me an e-mail!

I am primarily a food blogger, sharing gobs of family recipes with easy to follow photos showing every step.

I also occasionally share things from our family life…such as my son recently attending a homeschool prom with his sweetie.

Oh, and I also recently started vlogging!

I look forward to meeting all of you, and if you are finding me by way of the UBP14, share your website URL so I can get to know you!

And let’s connect! You can find me at all of these places…
