Welcome to the table!

I'm Anna. Ever since I was little, the kitchen felt like home to me. I grew up in a family where food was of the upmost importance and many of my sweetest memories have distinct flavors and smells attached to them. And I know this is not just true for me. Food is a special companion that connects people to each other and I think that is something to be celebrated. I write to share the food that shaped my stories, my day-to-day creations, and to learn about others' experiences through the flavors they bring. Food is the very best storyteller and stories should be delicious!

I am a wife, sister, daughter, teacher, writer, reader, and pastry chef. I love Jesus, good wine, the elusive perfect chocolate chip cookie, putting kale in anything I can get away with, friends you can be in your sweats around, exploring new places, sunshine and sandy feet (because I'm from Florida), fancy cheese, books that you can't put down, hiking, farmer's markets, a good gin and tonic, crime dramas, road trips, and dinner parties. 

So come on in! Leave your shoes at the door, pull up a chair and gather around my table.
