About

It is a life well spent to do the quiet labor of being a good and kind homemaker. I want to work hard to make our home beautiful and to be a hospitable family, where people can stop by and feel loved. Simple treats like lighting a nice candle, or making hearty food, or sitting with a soft pillow over conversation gives people a glimpse of love and gentleness. Cooking and all of that, at its best, does more than nourish us physically. In a paragraph, that is what my blog and life are about.

It is a great loss if we let domesticity fall out of trend. I am one young wife and mother who wants to celebrate and protect it. This blog is a place for like minded girls to do the same. And of course, also just a little help to simply answer that plaguing question – what should I make for dinner?

I live in Michigan with my husband, David, and our two children.

Here is a professional head shot of one of us and then the other one comedically and artistically parodying the other’s professional headshot. Decide for yourself which is which.

I am currently obsessed with renovating our 1970s colonial home in Michigan. I love asking questions. I like when little kids pronounce “wolf” like “wuff.” My happy place is Sam’s Club. The whole oxford comma debate is continuing to not go well for me (firmly pro).

A few of my favorite things: cake, nutella, bubble baths, The Lord of the Rings, the smell of coffee, David, going to church, books, chocolate covered pretzels, yogurt covered pretzels, basically anything covered pretzels, and cake again.

David S
My husband David (or “Dave” if you’re feeling crazy) is my one true love, muse, and original KitchenAid mixer. One thing all the middle school boys at my church and I have in common is that we think Dave Schultz is extremely cool and super good at sports. He is the podcast editor, food taster, tech guy, and occasional hand model around here.

His favorite things: sauerkraut, basketball, The Lord of the Rings, babies, the woods, sushi, and The Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack.

FAQ

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING YOU HAVE EVER MADE?

My three favorites (right now) are: roasted strawberry & chocolate grilled brie, black bean & spinach chicken enchiladas, and cocoa zucchini bread.

DO YOU CREATE ALL YOUR OWN RECIPES?

My favorite thing about food is that it is a communal event that brings people together. Many recipes are developed myself from scratch, and lots of others are tweaked from other recipes, perhaps from my friend’s mom or another blog on the internet (always cited!).

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ALL THE PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE?

I do! Up until December 3, 2012, I used a point and shoot Nikon Coolpix P500. Then until 2016 I used a Nikon D5100 and I now have the 5300. I use either the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 or the 50mm f/1.8 lens.

MAY I SHARE ONE OF YOUR POSTS ON MY WEBSITE?

Thank you for asking!

Photos – yes! Here is an example: These Strawberry French Toast Cannolis look great. [cannoli photo] Check out Rachel Schultz’s blog for the full recipe.
