When I think of the word “grounded,” I think earth, I think of roots-both in food and also in a sense of where we come from and what makes us who we are. My Cookbooks are just that. With family recipes, recipes inspired by our travels, and foods that bring comfort (in a fresh way, with whole ingredients.) Food is art, eating should be an experience, and it can (and should) take our breath away! Delicious food CAN (and should) also be feel-good food. We strive to celebrate small moments and help elevate your everyday gatherings. Every moment, every family dinner, every picnic on the floor, can be special when we make it so! Food can create connections, heal relationships, and bring people together. You can find and create grounded moments daily.

Being part of a physical church is wonderful. When it comes to fellowshipping and lightening burdens, having a large body makes it easer. But we are imperfect people, and sometimes we can get feel a little taken aback when some says something or does something that feels offensive.

I believe that people are good, and I try to give the benefit of the doubt, but when this does happen I really try to remember Who I’m there for. He’s the reason.

What a week in N-Y-C!!!

I’m honored to have been invited back for the Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker Event!

“Mama cut out pictures of houses for years, from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.”💛 How am I even here?! I get a little emotional here and there, because I’m still surprised about it and incredibly grateful! Loved being there with old and new friends!

We ate Breakfast at Tiffany’s! (For real!) I went for the first time to Wicked! We visited the Manhattan Temple! Went to the most gorgeous public library! And ate some incredibly delicious food!💛

Thanks, NYC!


I had the honor to attend the BHG Magazine 100 year anniversary party last year, and as we gear up to head back to NYC, I wanted to reflect on the fun and special experience this was for me! I was able to chat with many people about and give out my cookbook, “Grounded”, and learn from industry leaders. It’s always fun to see friends that you’ve made on social media in person, also!
