About me

Location ILLINOIS, United States
Introduction Welcome! My name is Lynn & I started this blog almost four years ago. I wanted it to be a place for sharing my love of food & photography as well as my random musings. Not only has the blog changed since it first began, but I have as well. Suffice to say we are both a work in progress. I am neither a professionally trained chef/baker nor a photographer. Rather I am someone who loves to cook, bake, entertain & capture as much beauty as I can find through the lens of my camera. I genuinely believe the world would be a much better place if we gathered around the things that connect us. For me, gathering around a table of food made with love, makes meals more memorable & deepens friendships. The recipes shared here come from a myriad of places. From my extensive cookbook & food magazine collections, from friends & from various media outlets. Yes, some of them are my very own. I am a baker at heart, but this is a place where you will find both sweet and savory recipes. If you are new to this blog, please take some time to go through the Recipe Index. I look forward to sharing things I have learned & inspiring you to bring joy to the people in your life you care for & love.
