Hey You! Thanks for Stopping by!
This site was born when my oldest daughter Emma married in the Fall of 2017. Once she returned from her honeymoon and settled into her newlywed apartment she started calling with how-to questions. See, I’m obsessed with food and creating pretty things and spend most of my spare time playing in the kitchen or styling a corner of the house. Now that she has a home of her own she wants to learn how to do all of those things for herself.
The questions kept coming and one night as I talked her through the steps to making my grandma’s Italian style chicken cutlets in browned butter she said, “Mom, have you ever considered writing all this stuff down? You have all of these recipes and ideas in your head but you haven’t written them anywhere. Your children need to know how to make this chicken! Think of your posterity!”
This blog is my response. Here you will find recipes I’ve been creating, adapting and curating for twenty years along with DIY projects, how to tutorials, design inspiration and gardening tips. So stick around, feel free to ask questions and feel free to share your own take on some of my favorite projects.
XOXO — Kristi
