Hello!! I’m Brita. I’m the writer, photographer, videography, and chef around these parts. I started my blog in 2013 thinking that it would be a lifestyle blog (whatever that really means). As it turns out, taking pictures of food was what I seemed to like the most so I went with it. I’ve enjoyed testing and creating new recipes and sharing them with you! If you have a suggestion for a new recipe, please let me know!
Since starting this blog, I’ve transitioned to a mostly plant-based lifestyle and diet. What does that mean? It means that I eat a vegan diet about 75% of the time and a vegetarian diet 100% of the time. So, you can expect to lots of yummy recipes that seasonal, fresh, and filled with lots of natural ingredients and (mostly) healthy :)
I live in Nashville with my husband, Stephen, and 2 fluffy puppies, Lexi and Zorro. In the past couple years, we’ve also added a cute orange kitten to our family as well as 5 backyard hens. Stephen does the recipe testing; Lexi and Zorro clean the kitchen floor and double as occasional models for my photography practice.
I’m a Nashville native and pretty much think that it’s the best city ever! Have you ever been here? It’s pretty great. Shoot me a line if you’ll ever be in town and I’ll tell you ALL the best places to eat.
Other random notes worth mentioning: I’m on a mission to bake the perfect vegan cookies. I hate push-ups (but do crossfit so push-ups are part of my regular life). I love listening to songs on repeat (it drove my mother crazy growing up). I’m 1/2 Italian and therefore love all things carbs, especially pasta and bread. Bailey’s Irish Cream is the best drink that was ever invented and I’ve heard rumors that a dairy free version is being released soon (!!!).
What can you expect from this blog?? Expect to see recipes that, in my opinion, are delicious. My recipes are almost completely plant-based although I do often eat eggs as well since I have pet backyard chickens. While I do make quite a few light and healthy dishes, that’s not the focus of this blog. My hope is to give you recipes that you will enjoy making, love eating, and, maybe most importantly, that you will be eager to share. Food is such an important part of our community and our culture and I love to embrace that.
