Howdy-do. I’m Alisa and I have a red headed toddler, a blonde headed baby, a sweet white dog and a rather amazing husband. I am a photographer on the weekend, but during the week, my love is in the kitchen, at the stove, sitting down to a meal together and watching my girls grow up. I live for those things and they enrich my life daily. I think food is so much more than nutrition – it’s the way we commune and feel comforted and recall wonderful memories with friends and family. I guess in my early thirties, I’d finally had enough of talking about things that didn’t really matter. So I started this blog.
