Welcome! I’m glad you found this place. Stick around if you like; and bring your friends – the more the merrier.

I’m Niki.  I’m a mama, a wife, a daughter, a friend.

I cook. Mostly I try to make good stuff using real, local ingredients.  I don’t always succeed, but I try. And there’s success in trying, I think.

I bake. I try to use whole grains and unrefined, natural sweeteners.  I often adapt conventional recipes for baked goods to accommodate freshly ground whole grain flour and honey or sucanat.

I write. About food mostly, but also about life and kids and gardens and chickens and other stuff that makes me happy. And sometimes things that make me sad.

I take pictures. Of food mostly, but also of other things. Like kids and gardens and chickens. But mostly food.  You get the idea.

I believe in stories told around the dinner table, and in sharing food with friends because it just tastes better than eating alone.

I believe food, when prepared and consumed thoughtfully, does more than nourish our bodies; it also nourishes our souls.

This is a glimpse into my life, in recipes.
