If I had to sum up what I want this blog to be about in 4 words they’d be: crafting, cooking, living, learning.

Growing up I spent a lot of time reading and doing arts and crafts, but it’s only been in the past few years of living on my own that I’ve started learning to cook and do household chores.

I didn’t have a domestically-inclined grandmother living nearby to show me what she knew. As Alanna Okun says in her book of crafting essays, The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater, “Sometimes the grandmother is YouTube”.

I want to use this blog to document the recipes and ideas I’ve tried for my own reference, but also to share with others.
