Hi! I’m Sarah—wife, mama, writer, and omnivore.
In my previous life, I worked in the nonprofit world. For several years I was on staff at By The Hand Club For Kids, a Chicago-based organization serving kids in under-resourced communities. After that I worked with Feed My Starving Children, a nonprofit providing food for malnourished children around the world.
Now, you can usually find me chasing around my twin toddlers or snuggling my baby boy - although he’s on the verge or walking, so I’m chasing him around more often than not, too! When I’m not hanging out with the littles, I’m often reading, writing, or creating in the kitchen.
My family and I eat paleo-ish, but thanks to no major food allergies or intolerances, our diet includes a little bit of everything. You’ll find paleo recipes here, but part of my own journey in learning hospitality includes learning to cook for a range of diet preferences and restrictions. That means you’ll see vegan dishes like Curry Stew and indulgent recipes like Bacon + Dark Chocolate Cookies. Whatever the dish, I’m all about food that delights, which sometimes means a green smoothie to feel my best or at other times a cocktail to share with friends.
You’ll find a few other posts mixed in with recipes, like how to make homemade salt scrubs or personal essays. In addition to writing here, I contribute recipes and essays regularly to Coffee + Crumbs, a collaborative blog about motherhood. You can also check out some of my work at The Gospel Coalition, (in)courage, and Willow + Sage magazine.
Whatever you end up reading, I pray it’ll be helpful, encouraging, and inspiring. Most of all, I hope you feel at home.
So grab a drink, put your feet on the coffee table, and relax even if red wine spills on the carpet. There are probably spit-up stains there, anyway.
