The Gate Is Open!

Lifestyle, Video | May 15, 2015 | By


My name is Ruth and I have an obsession, ok…a few but COOKING is my ultimate pleasure, I’m so obsessed that I took one year to write, shoot and put together a demo video to use to sell my idea for a cooking/lifestyle show. I just released it on YouTube and I’d love for you to see it.
I’ve been perfecting and collecting recipes, raising a family, building, antiquing, gardening and living a simple, rustic life. It’s very different than my life when I was a model, but this is where I’ve always known I should be. My blog is a way for me to share over 30 years of country living in an old log cabin in the woods. I’m teaching my girls everything I’ve learned about cooking and making a beautiful happy home. Hopefully we’ll all be cooking together in our new venture!

My husband and I have carved out a little sanctuary, a refuge in this fast paced, crazy world and I’m ready to open the gate and let everyone in!

    Can I please come and live at your cabin in the woods? It looks like something straight out of a Country Living article! Love the barn and I can understand how my old chiffarobe fit in your mom’s place. It’s huge! What a wonderful place to come home to after shooting with some of my clients! Loved the show, the food – you’re like the Midwest Giada! But we all know you’re much sweeter, kinder and a better cook!

    Congrats on a great project. Thrilled to get to see it!

    I cook and like your recipes. I had a modified version of Korean shortfibs last night, with Brussels sprouts and cardamom rice. Great! Looking forward to the filet mignon!
