I’ve always been a believer in beautiful food. Ask my dad… as a kid I used to ask him to give me a letter grade for the ketchup designs I made on my fishsticks. It was my art! And it still is. That’s why I created Pretty/Hungry!
To me, cooking is creating… and food truly is art. But it’s certainly not enough for it to just look pretty, it also has to taste awesome!
After coming through a season of life where food was one of my biggest sources of struggle, I’ve found complete healing and delicious freedom! I’ve come to understand that we truly can “have it all” when it comes to our food. It can look gorgeous without sacrificing taste! It can feel indulgent without costing a fortune! It can be decadent without being unhealthy! I’m passionate about sharing that news with anyone who will listen.
The purpose of Pretty / Hungry is to provide you with the recipes I use, the tips I can offer for making your food both beautiful and delicious, and sometimes even photos of the process so that the more complex recipes can be carried out easily in your own kitchen!
Another convenient bonus is that you get to read and feel better about the state of your home and kitchen, just by reading about my completely insufficient housekeeping skills! Happy to be of service! (If you need a dose of “feel better about your kitchen” medicine… just check out my White Lasagna post. My kitchen was a real jaw-dropper that day!)
Read. Enjoy. Create. Eat. Share!
