Hello and welcome!! My name is Ashleigh and I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am a Mama to 3 little ladies: 8 year old twins and a 5 year old, plus one on the way in August! We are all so excited for the new addition, even though it was quite a shock–you better believe that Ricky is hoping for a boy! There are also two rescue dogs. Let’s just say, I like to keep it interesting!
With the new baby coming soon, I will also be focusing on more baby centered posts: how to save money on baby goods, what items you need and making food! My lactation muffin recipe has been taking off on Pinterest. I would love to collaborate with brands that focus on baby items, since everything has changed so much in the last 6 years!
Aside from blogging, I am also very active at the girls’ elementary school as the PTA President. I am a huge advocate of early literacy and providing children with as many experiences as possible! We love to travel to visit museums and historical places around the Midwest.
My blog is a mixing bowl of ideas, hence the Dash of Evans name…a dash of tips, dash of food…a dash of the Evans family!
I started blogging at my first site, Being Cheap is Easy in 2010, when I was stuck home with twin babies. Last fall, I decided it was time to change my site and focus more on food! While food is my main interest, I like to share a dash of everything else going on: family, fun, crafts, travel and more!
Also, I like to share tips on how to save money since I am quite frugal. Since I spend most of my time in the kitchen feeding 3 little girls who eat like football players, I share tasty recipes for easy and inexpensive meals. Heads up: I also make killer cocktails and I’ll never pass on a nice glass of wine…well, when I’m not pregnant. Now I’m enjoying Fre wine. 🙂
I like to make sure people know that being on a budget is not a bad thing, its a SMART way to live your life! Everyone can save money, it doesn’t matter why you are doing it! Also, cooking great homemade meals does not have to break the bank, or take up your whole night! Join me in my crazy life. I hope you learn something new while you are at it!
