Hello, I’m Erin. I live outside of Portland, Oregon with my husband, Dave, baby daughter, Phillie, and tuxedo cat, Burt.

Braising is my favorite cooking method. There is something beautiful about taking a tough piece of meat and simmering it low and slow until it becomes magnificently tender.

When Dave and I met I worked three jobs, and seven days a week. It didn’t take me long of being with him to realize I needed to slow down to nurture my life and our relationship. That choice led to most of my dreams coming true. Now I’m here to chase some others. Welcome.
