My name is Trina, I’m a Mother to three amazing Children, two in my arms and one with his angel wings. Becoming a mom was the best thing I ever did in my life, it pushed me to take a look at my own actions. I don’t want to teach my children only by telling them how to behave in this world, I want to show them with my own behavior. I believe that starts with following your dreams and WhiskingMama.com is my dream. It started out as a small dream, I wanted a place to share all my delicious recipes and craft ideas. I also pushed myself to open up about my grief and losing my first born son Patryk, back in 2009. What this journey has done in healing my heart I’m forever grateful for. Whisking Mama has become something much greater than I could have ever imagined.
Shortly after starting this website my dream began to expand and I didn’t want to be held back. There will always be negativity around you when following your dreams, but I have learned to drown out these voices. I want to focus on this new dream and I hope to inspire others to follow their heart. I believe we should all do something with our lives that gives us hope and purpose. Here on this site you will find forever changing content. This is because as I continue to grow and change so will the topics. One thing will always be a constant when you come back and visit, and that’s amazing recipes. Food is a passion of mine that only grows greater with time. I hope you all are thoroughly enjoying the recipes thus far 🙂
One last thing I want to leave you with, Project Mindful Mama, this is my pride and joy. My first fundraiser that I held back in February of 2016. I wanted to do more than just wish there was support for the parents who unexpectedly ending up in the Pediatric ICU. This project is sending support to parents during possibly one of the most difficult times in their families life. Click here to learn more about Project Mindful Mama and how you can help support the families in need.
At the end of the day it is all about sharing stories, connecting with one another and enjoying great food, that’s what Whisking Mama is all about.
3 Cooking Tips From Whisking Mama
- The quality of each ingredient going into a recipe matters, so taste each component on its own to ensure a great tasting dish. I especially recommend this step when a recipe calls for wine! 🙂
- Relaxing while cooking will allow you to think more clearly. When possible I cook to music I love, dancing not required but is encouraged!
- Cook from the heart and remind yourself, even the best cooks in the world make mistakes. Just keep trying and loving what you do!
