When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?

My earliest memory of being interested in baking was at my great grandmother's house-- she would effortlessly whip up an amazing array of pies and comfort foods for the holidays and somehow have so much energy to spare, it was a beautiful thing to witness. I also have such fond memories of baking with my aunt and cooking with my mom + dad who are all wonderful cooks.

What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?

We currently have a tiny kitchen, although it has a pretty decent amount of counter space for it's size. My husband has taught me the art of cleaning as you go along-- I'm a bit scattered by nature, so this has really helped us to stay organized. And we have a small shelving unit dedicated to the blog so we can easily access items we use on a regular basis for cooking and photography.

What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?

Love and respect your ingredients and don't be afraid to make mistakes-- sometimes what at first seems like an error can actually lead you to the best dish you've ever created! :)

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?

That is a tough one, I could imagine many scenarios, but I keep coming back to family, including those we've lost. And it would just be a great big grain-free Thanksgiving feast.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I love to crochet, although I'm not the best at it. Singing and baking are my great loves.

Which cooking blogs do you love to read?

Minimalist Baker has always been a favorite of mine, as well as Fit Mitten Kitchen, America's Gluten Free Sweetheart + Too Precious For Processed.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

So excited to be featured, thanks for thinking of us! :-)
