Hi I'm Tanna.
Welcome to Wild Oats and Aprons!
How do you make whole grains as accessible, fast, and craving-good as your favorite restaurant food? Good news; I've got about a million ways. Consider these classes and instruction your own personal Kennedy Space Center, launching you on your own fun journey with whole grains. You will be amazed at how easy and super tasty whole grains can be, and how many ideas will come to you, once you start out. In fact, it would be my best compliment if YOU became better than me, coming up with multiple ideas of your own.
Some have asked me about the glamour girl logo, if I think its a likeness of me.
Good grief, no! She's a "bread babe", and me, at age 45, could be considered more of a 'bread broad'--but don't call me that. That would make me feel all unhappy inside. We both have blond hair and blue eyes, and we both smile a lot, but thats where the likeness ends. (Btw, the wild oats girl, as well as my website, were designed by my incredibly talented niece. Check out her work: http://www.kikiandsquishy.com/chris/info.html
Still, is "bread babe" too cutie-pie for representing whole grain living? I know, right? When you think of whole grains, don't you picture unshaven legs, no make-up, no style? Ha! That was so last decade. You and I are going to make whole grains CHIC! Whole grain dishes will be soon fought over at potlucks, for sure. The Wild Oats and Aprons Bread Babe represents YOU, the customer: smart, chic, happy, super cool. Yeah! Run with it.
Now on a personal note. At present, my wonderful mother is dying. She has had Alzheimer's for some 15 years now. She is my inspiration, my teacher. She was the original Wild Oats and Aprons girl! Just about every adult day of her life she cooked up whole grains, in incredibly delicious ways.
And even though we, her 13, yes! 13 children (I'm the youngest), will be happy she will soon be free, it will be devastation to not have her with us anymore. I hope I live my life in honor of her. I hope I can share with all of you her vast knowledge and experience with wholesome food, as well as her goodness.
So onward! using whole grains, THE NEW COMFORT FOOD. You just wait! If you don't already, you are soon going to LOVE everything about whole grains!
Enjoy the ride. And thanks for your interest. You won't be disappointed.
I love your Mom. She is still inspiring us through all of you.ReplyDelete

I am so sorry about your mom. Sally told me about her back it 2004 when we were still friends. She alway treated me so good, even better then my own family. For years I wished she was my mother and she sure raised all of you so well. I am one of ten so I know can relate a little. Now Henry had his role and he was the onloy man I ever feared. Different story. If my mother ever come around to where she talks again about old times I am sure she will ask me again about your mom. I wish you all my best. MikeReplyDelete
