We’re a team of do-ers.
You can see our small team and talented contributors below, both past and present.
We started blogging as a way to support our local boutique and bakery, in southwest Missouri. But along the way we realized we loved sharing recipes, craft tutorials and home decor so much that we made blogging our focus.
We’ve also written three books on: photography, DIY, and a cookbook! And Emma has one fiction book out: Handmade Murder.
Our background and interest in cooking and creativity mainly comes from our mother. She was born in Venezuela and moved to the Midwest later in her childhood. While our grandmother would have told you she wasn’t much of a cook we do have found memories making Hallacas with her around the holidays. But we have a lot of influence from our great grandmother Lula who lived with our mom for a time after they moved to the United States. Being from Oklahoma she was all about the country cooking and church potlucks.
