About NanaBread

Welcome to the “Inside NanaBread’s Head” blog. It’s a lot like my junk drawers – filled with tidbits, trash and treasures. When you open it, you never know what might fall out.  I hope you’ll join me as I share my life with humor, common sense, and a pinch of sarcasm. I was born and raised in the Bermuda Triangle of the South (Texas/Oklahoma/Arkansas), which means I am usually polite, thoughtful, friendly and very family oriented.  I’ve been married to The Complete Package for 30+ years (I got married when I was a baby). We have a beautiful daughter who lives in Austin with her wonderful husband and our two gorgeous grandkids.

I have four sisters, so I come from a large family of women with some men-folk married in and lots of children to boot.  We’re a large, diverse group known for being loud, funny and fiercely loyal.  Most of all, we love each other warts and all, and when we get together, hilarity always ensues.  Come to my world!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I really mean it. I live for comments, so if you like something, please leave a comment and tell me what you think. If you’d like to contact me, I can be reached by e-mail at heynanabread at yahoo(dot)com.

  1. So what you’re saying is, you’re in your early 30s, right? =) Heh heh. I love your humor.

    Just found your blog through my niece. The owl blanket and bib you sent her is precious. We can’t hardly wait for Drew to get here (although she will always be my Butterbean) and look forward to seeing more of your blog.

    • I love Butterbean as a nickname! We called Jonah Bear “Peanut” when My Baby was pregnant with him. Thank you for popping over to visit the blog. Your niece, Alex, is a special person and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her through her blog… as well as Nigel, Nash & Natalie. I can’t wait for Drew to join the party. I’m sure the family is beyond excited.

  3. What a great “about” you wrote up. Is that a photo of you as a baby? Super cute! Look forward to checking out more of your writing.

    • Thank you so much! Yes, that is a photo of me as a tyke. I was about 16 months old, and we were visiting my grandmother’s farm outside of Denison, Texas. My older sister and I were eating berries on the screened porch. It’s one of my favorite old photos of me as a wee one. That’s why I selected it for my blog. It reminds me to be fun and carefree. And a little mischievious.

    Hola, espero que hables alguito de español. Me gustó mucho tu blog, pero lo que más me gusta, son las recetas. So, i invite you to visit my blog….. in spanish! ;) http//criandonos.wordpress.com

    • Cristina, me temo que no hablo mucho español pero me encanta Google Translate, que ayuda a mi comunicación cuando sea necesario. Pido disculpas si la traducción está apagado en modo alguno. Gracias por leer mi blog acerca de las madres. He visitado su blog, y amaba la fotografía de usted y su pequeña hija. Muy lindo! Espero leer más de su blog y mirando a sus recetas, también. Feliz Día de la Madre.

      For readers trying to follow along, I said (in English): Kristina, I’m afraid I do not speak much Spanish but I do love Google translate, which helps my communicate whenever needed. I apologize if the translation is off in any way. Thank you for reading my blog post about mothers. I visited your blog, and loved the photograph of you and your little daughter. Very cute! I look forward to reading more of your blog and looking at your recipes, as well. Happy Mother’s Day. -NB

  5. I too come from a big family. We are 7 kids – 5 girls and 2 boys.

  6. It was really sweet to read about you. And the golden baby locks are so cute! Love the picture and the emotion in all you wrote. :)

  11. I’m having fun clicking around your blog and following random links. Nice work! I also love comments so couldn’t leave without saying hi.
    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed.

    • Thanks, Dianne. Feel free to dig around as much as you want. I hope you’ll find it entertaining. And thanks for the ‘congrats’ on Freshly Pressed. What a pleasant surprise! -jeanne

  12. I love your pinch of sarcasm..,is The Complete Package a part of that? In any case I’m laughing up a storm right now…

    • Is the moniker “The Complete Package” part of my sarcasm? Hmm… I’m going to have to plead the Fifth on that one, Ameena. Since he GAVE HIMSELF THAT NICKNAME, I’ll have to let him respond to that one. That said, he really is one of the good guys.

      Right honey? {He’s a reader, too.}

    Funny just notice where your from no wonder I was drawn in. I was born in McRae, AR. Raised in Arizona, but did a lot of visit back there as a child until I was 15. So I have fun memories of the good old country life.

  14. Hi NanaBread! Connecting with you via Eileen at Joy of Caking – we’ll be “working” together on her fall dinner! Looking forward to following along with your blog.

  15. Great blog and pictures NanaBread! I’m following you now so I can’t wait to see more of what you cook :-)
