Summer, summer, summertime–eating a brat at the Minneapolis Farmers Market. And yes! That is a dangling foot behind my head. How good of you to notice. About me
I’m Erin. I love writing. Creating, reading, talking about it, and editing it. And I love food. Looking at it, smelling it, tasting it, making it, celebrating the variety that we have. Two plus two equals four…so you put them all together, you do the hokey pokey, and I write about food here, among other things. I’m notorious for making things once and never again, for not measuring, for not using recipes, and for not remembering how I made something. I created this site to force myself to keep track of dishes I make, to write, and to give myself a creative outlet.
I graduated from Brigham Young University, and yes, I’m a Mormon. I studied nutrition, editing, and English–all of which I am passionate about.
In real life, I’m a professional freelance editor and writer who also teaches piano (you know what they say about variety). I’m also a professional mother, wife, baker, recycler, maker of yogurt and sower of seeds (during our two-week growing season here in Minnesota), and candlestick maker (except that last one). I have two children and one husband and one medium-sized puggle. The puggle might like food more than any of us combined. We live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Hello!
