well. hey there. it's me. kristen. a mama to three rascally boys. trying to figure this beautifully messy life out one day at a time. i hope to inspire you to find the fun in every day. find the yum in every bite. and find the ca-ute in every outfit. it will be authentic. it will be full of love. and full of laughs. and maybe even a few shed tears. but most of all it will be like coming home. like sitting down to coffee with your very best friend. i am so thrilled that you are here. now cozy up & let's have some fun.

after years of people asking me where i got that cute tee shirt. or how to make the fluffiest pancakes. or where i purchased my bazillion throw pillows. or how to keep a tidy home with three rascals running wild. or how I find the courage to forge a new path after divorce. i figured this would be the perfect little spot for us besties to all come together. sharing our love for food. fashion. family. and fun. all while finding your truest & most honest self. but hey. full disclosure. i do not know all the answers. nor am i the greatest fashionista. and hello spoiler alert. i am not even a real chef. but here we can pretend that we are all those things together. we can admit that we most certainly do not have it all together. but we are most certainly in this life together. and i am glad that you are here with me. you're my people.

hey there!

you are my people

oh Lordy. these crispy strips of goodness are highly addicting. consider yourself warned. the sweet salty combo is just so dang good. I can almost promise that you cannot eat just one piece. you just wait . . . as if bacon isn’t good enough on its own. add in some toasty pecans & caramelized […]

this is a super simple but hugely delicious side dish. the bites are salty & crispy, loaded with parmesan & topped with scallion sour cream. just really, really yummy. I love that these could work beautifully for a brunch dish or paired with a filet for dinner. super versatile & sure to become a favorite […]

I kid you not. When I assembled this dish. I immediately ate the entire plate full. With my fingers. Standing up. Without stopping for one little breathe of air. It is THAT delicious. It is so light & fresh. Literally bursting with springtime flavors. If I didn’t think that I would turn into one big […]

the thought of eating a quiche aways makes me laugh. as a child my mom would make us quiche & she could not get us to eat it. like ever. she would beg, plead, force, and still end up with no quiche eaten. being a mom now . . . I can totally empathize with […]

this is hands down my very favorite brunch recipe. if I had to choose just one brunch food to eat for the rest of time . . . this would be it. we have made this blueberry crumb cake for years & years & years because it is just so dang good. its like a […]

this may be one of my all time favorite lower carb lunches. and yes, I said lower. this is definitely not no carb. it is lower carb. in the faster way, we practice carb cycling, which allows us to incorporate LOWER carb days. and this lunch is the perfect option for one of our lower […]

hi. im so glad you are here. if you are here it is because you are likely craving authenticity. you want the real reel. not the instagram reel. you are just like me. maybe you follow me on instagram and know that I am divorced. or that I struggle with anxiety. or that sometimes I […]

Gang. I have been cooking away for over a decade. my love for cooking sparked in college & has just grown over the years. I love the experience of it. I love the deliciousness of it. I love the comfort. The connection. And the memories of it. To me, food is a lot like love. […]
