About Me

Hi, I’m Emily! Thanks for visiting my blog! I’m a wife, mother, and lover of all things edible. I have a serious passion for cooking and trying new recipes. After getting married, I wanted to cook awesome meals for my husband but had a lot of learning to do. My little farmhouse kitchen is where I fell in love with food. I am always on the hunt for new recipes and find them anywhere I can: food magazines, cookbooks, blogs, Pinterest (who doesn’t love Pinterest!?), cooking shows, etc. I also love taking food photos. I am relatively new at this and try my best to capture photos of my food that look delicious and make you hungry!

Join me on my quest for finding great recipes while having fun in the kitchen! I will also be sharing with you some food destinations I love where you can be sure to find good eats!


My husband Alex and I met in 2008. I was working at a bakery where he would come in to get lunch quite often. I must have made some delicious sandwiches because he was hooked. One day after ordering his sandwich and a hot chocolate he asked me out on a date. We dated for 4 years, got married in November 2012, and now have two beautiful 14month old twins, Danny and Mackenzie. Alex is my best friend and the man of my dreams. He loves all of my cooking adventures and doesn’t at all mind being my taste tester.

I am so excited to share my passion of cooking with all of you! I hope I can inspire someone to get in the kitchen and try new things.
