10411431_747827650818_8733087267916638269_nHi, I’m Emily! 

I’m a graphic designer and non-profit development person by day, and an at-home cook and volunteer lacrosse statistician by night.

I live in Houston with:

  • my husband Bill – a classicist and language teacher
  • our puggle Bueller – the best dog of all time
  • our cat Finnegan – who I think is the first ever autistic feline

Expect to see recipes, some personal blogging, outfit recap posts, and a few of my favorites here on the blog since I like baking for special occasions and friends, mishmashing recipes from all over the internet, reading and being a homebody.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Emily,
    You are a total nerd…but you knew that already. You write really well and it is a great way to keep up with you. Thanks for bringing a smile to our faces this summer. It won’t be the same without you 😦 Anytime you want a Texas taco just come back to SA.
