Give me an adorable apron, a glass of red, a fist full of herbs, and time. I will give you my heart. I am learning that I am a storyteller, or rather a memory keeper. I have just always shared through movement, and most recently with food. Years ago I would have not imagined my wanderlust could fit inside a domestic, mundane life. But it is here, in my kitchen, where I overflow with gratitude, and where purpose fills my bones. As a wife and a Mama, cooking and baking have become my everyday means to find joy, and celebrate life. Creating and savoring whole food dishes has become a visceral pursuit, my domestic adventure.
This blog is a space for me to document and share the colors and tastes that fill our bellies, and the stories that weave in and around our lives. It’s a collection of recipes, but also our stories and truths, so that one day my daughters can cultivate and share this beauty with their families. This space is a place to feed my appetite for color and my longing for substance that grows far beyond my plate.
