About Emily

Hi, I’m Emily! I cook for myself (vegetarian, recently gluten-free) and my husband (a carnivore who is slowly learning to like vegetables) in Portland, Oregon.

Addy- the self portrait
About Addy

I’ve always enjoyed making a mess in the kitchen.  As a small child I used to sneak into the kitchen to make “rabbit stew” (this consisted of emptying my mom’s spices into a large pot of water.  Yeah, I was a great kid.) These days I spend my time in the kitchen cobbling together “what-ever-the-heck-you’ve-got […]

About Dawn

Hey, I’m Dawn. I am a trained researcher and enjoy the science of baking. I’m also a professional crafter who specializes in recycled materials. That same theory follows me into the kitchen – I absolutely hate throwing food away. I work hard to find ways to use up that last bit of canned pumpkin or […]

About Patricia

Hi, I’m Patricia. I grew up in Georgia with a Korean mother who cooked everything from homemade biscuits and gravy to bulgogi equally well.  She rarely used recipes except when she baked a red velvet cake. I believe this is why I don’t really follow recipes (and why I love red velvet cake).  I may […]

I am mostly a vegetarian, though […]
