I believe this is where I am supposed to draft some catchy words to grab you so that you become so caught up in the poetic cadence of my words that you bookmark this stripped down website as one you'll return to again and again.

Well, I hate to disappoint you.

This is not that kind of website.

It's a blog.

About food.

And whatever I happen to be thinking about while I cook my way through a cookbook.

I need to confess this is not my first blog.

I published my first blog in 2012 and wrote nearly every day for six years.

I loved it. It was a cathartic experience. I made loads of virtual relationships. I got to publish a few words in collaborative works. I got to co-host a podcast.

But in 2018, a little more than a year after a family pivot, I decided it was time to not only stop blogging, but to also delete the blog.

I've never regretted it.

I'm not quite sure when I thought it was time to begin again, but I do know that lately, I have missed writing something fierce.

And I have missed the community that comes with online writing.

So I am beginning again.

For those of you who knew me when, I imagine you'll still find the same me within the words I'll share in this new space. I manage a local brewery now, but we still live in our same neighborhood, still serve the same church plant, still school our kids in the same schools, still love our same community, and we are still learning to thrive with mental illness.


Life is full.

Yet, fuller still when shared with friends.

And I long to share a bit of life with you over this table.

So welcome.

I hope you've come hungry.

Click on over to the Blog to join me as I cook my way through Sean Brock's Heritage.

I'm sharing the mechanics of how this blog is going to work, what you can hope to find each week, and an invitation to cook alongside me each week!




Join Me?

You can order your own copy wherever you buy books.

I'll do the hard work of choosing our menu for each week along with supplying us a list of ingredients and special equipment needed to prepare each dish. Don't start wringing your hands, yet. I'll only choose one or two dishes each week. 

Sound like fun???


Yes it does.
