About Sherry Brubaker
I’m Sherry Brubaker, a wife to an incredibly handsome Wyoming cowboy, mother of three cute kids, and lover of creativity. Welcome to Backyard Bohemian, a brand inspired by family recipes I grew up on and my deep-rooted Italian heritage. To me, dinner is a time to reconnect with the ones you love the most, and disconnect from the constant day to day chaos. Here you will find delicious family recipes that are healthy, easy to make, and accessible.
My Papa immigrated to the U.S. from Vieste, Italy, and settled in Massachusetts. He was an award-winning chef that loved to feed people fresh, healthy, Italian-inspired meals. I remember as a child he would always be busy in his kitchen cooking something delicious up. He’d deliver your plate and proudly shout “Mangia!” which is Italian for “eat”- his loving demand.
As I have grown, I realized my love language is feeding people. I have always looked forward to gathering around a table and sharing a meal with people. It’s not just a meal, it’s the bonding experience, the engagement of all senses, the togetherness. It really taps into our primal need for nourishment and belonging.
We’ve all been there- exhausted, standing in front of the fridge, wondering what to throw together for their family. These recipes were created for you! Using simple, healthy ingredients, my farm to table recipes are something your family is going to love gathering around the table for. Picky eaters, and adults, alike!
We owe it to Mother Earth and ourselves to slow down, enjoy a nourishing meal, and reclaim the day! My recipes take the guesswork out of meal planning and help you get your family eating healthier, more satisfying meals.
So, grab a coffee, and stay a while! We have some eating to do, mangia!
