Welcome to my blog!
I’m Caroline and I am super excited you’re here, reading this, right now. Oh wait, now I’m nervous.
A couple of years ago I started a blog with a friend of mine called A Cozy Kitchen. It was great, cause I got to discover a passion for food. More importantly though, I rediscovered a passion for writing and photography. I thought it might be cool to have a blog where I could write about other things like this, or take photos of stuff like this. I hope you think it’s cool too. I really, really do.
I am a completely self & Mom taught cook with no formal training. Sometimes this means I make really delicious and easy-to-make recipes. Other times, I don’t…but you probably won’t ever hear about those. Also – I’m a pescatarian. Don’t be scared, that’s just a snotty way of saying the only meats I eat are fish and seafood, so you won’t see many meat recipes on my site, but I PROMISE everything here is delicious. I may not eat much meat these days, but I’m a Southern-Italian raised on homemade pasta sauce and BBQ, so I know what good food tastes like.
When I started blogging back in 2009, I was living in Los Angeles. A year ago my husband Chase and I found out we would be inheriting a house in my hometown of Hendersonville, NC, and so we’ve since moved back. We moved from a small rental apartment and are now slowly renovating a large house with a few acres of land. To put things diplomatically, it has been an adjustment. I am still in denial about living half a mile away from my childhood home. When I can pull myself out of the anxiety cloud that home ownership brings with it, I try to update what we’ve been working on at the house. Please forgive me if I’m bad about this.
I take all of the photos you see on this blog. I have a Nikon D40 camera with a 100mm macro lens and 50mm lens. Sometimes I use my super fancy Speedlight Flash, but natural sunlight is my favorite. I’ve also been known to use my Iphone when it’s convenient.
Thanks for stopping by, I really like you a lot. For reals.
