I’m Jacinda, and the Northern Nester is my blog about making our Canadian house a home. It’s also a virtual recipe box for our favorite Trim Healthy Mama-friendly creations.
We’re a single-income homeschooling family of seven. Most of the projects you’ll find here will be from free material or thrifted, second-hand, and discount or clearance purchases, and my Trim Healthy Mama-friendly recipes use no special or expensive ingredients. I’m usually preoccupied with things like math and spelling quizzes, meal prep, laundry, and changing diapers, so my projects and recipes also tend to be quick and easy…with the exception of our recent kitchen reno. 😉
This blog is reserved for recipes, tutorials, and how-to posts which take longer for me to churn out. You’ll find me more active on Instagram, where I can share a photos with greater ease.
I’m an aspiring minimalist and truly believe that less is more. I love the challenge and freedom of making Large Family Minimalism a reality in our home.
Thanks for joining me!
