My entire family is from the deep south, so you can imagine our food delicacies. Growing up, my family gatherings were centered around Carolina style barbecue, decadent pies, and game-time boiled peanuts. My grandma was known for her pecan pie – chalk full of butter, white sugar, and corn syrup. I never met my grandma, but I’ve been told she was an incredibly grounded, honest, whip-you-into-shape kind of gal. I steer clear of pecan pies these days, but I’m honored to strive towards my grandma’s sense of strength and kindness.Read More›
When I was growing up, my mom and I spent every Tuesday night together because my dad worked late. For years, we watched Full House and ate goat cheese broccolini eggplant sandwiches (a recipe she invented), and as the ritual developed, it came to feel like a special treat during the school week. I’ve probably eaten this sandwich more times than any other meal, yet I’m still not sick of it!Read More›
This is an old family recipe from my aunt who passed away when I younger. She was such an inspiring women and was always the one pulling our family together, especially with her crunchy cheese carrots. My sister has been making this recipe every year in her memory.

Adam and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary, which is to say that we’re most definitely family at this point. Though we’re thinking about having kids soon, right now we’re pretty obsessed with our sourdough starter. We feed it, hire a babysitter to tend to it while we’re out of town (my sister or Adam’s brother), and do a lot of fun things together. And it doesn’t cry…so should we just leave it at three? Our most recent experiment was sourdough pancakes, and we think they turned out pretty flippin’ great (get it?). Here’s the recipe for you:Read More›
If you’re anything like us, you might find the outdoors intimidating and sometimes even a little scary. Sure, you can hike like a champ. Maybe you run outside. And obviously laying out in the park or at the beach–done and done.
But talking with Trish Cloutier, a Grassroots Team Leader for the Outdoor Women’s Alliance made us realize it might not be our fault? And that it’s kind of a thing. Trust, it’ll all make sense soon.Read More›
