Welcome to hearthomemade.  My name is Kelly.  Currently, I’m somewhat of a wandering scientist (read as fluctuating work schedule / pre-midlife crisis / career change contemplation).  If money weren’t an issue, I’d love to be a suzy-q homemaker.  I LOVE to cook and bake.  I find it extremely rewarding to spend time in the kitchen experimenting with different foods, flavors, and textures.  Last year, my love of all things culinary turned into copious amounts of food photos, an addiction to food blogs, and a huge jump in the number of recipes I try.  So of course, I decided to start my very first blog, and center it around food.

Why else have I decided to share my kitchen endeavors?

– to have an easy format for recipe sharing (a simple way to fulfill those “ooo can I have that recipe?” requests)

– try to give back on the inspiration front (I’m constantly inspired to play with new methods and flavors by reading my favorite blogs)

– feel like I’m doing something productive with the hundreds of photos I take while cooking (I can’t tell you how many times my husband has asked me what I plan on doing with all these photos and why it takes me so long to start eating)

Please comment away on the posts.  I hate feeling like I’m talking to myself  :P

Hope you enjoy your visit!

  1. I love your blog, Kelly! Being a fellow food blogger I totally relate to your statement above about your husband asking why it takes you so long to start eating. I am always rushing around to take a few photos before we eat dinner, which can leave me very hungry, indeed! ;)

  2. Thanks for checking out my blog and About page recently! I hope you get a chance to stop by again and make a recipe or two for yourself. I look forward to following your posts in the future!


  3. Hi Kelly! I remembered you mentioning to me you would love to get your hands on some sumac. I just picked some up at the market and got an extra package for you! I would be most happy to forward it to you. :) Let me know…my email address: tinywhitecottage@gmail.com. I know you are traveling so if you would like to just wait until you return I’ll hold on to it for you. Happy travels!

  4. I so enjoy reading your posts. I think your writing is imaginative and thoughtful and your photos are gorgeous!! I have to ask, are you on Instagram? I have a feeling that I would love your photos.

    • wow, thank you so much for the lovely compliments Meret! No, I’m not on Instagram (a Windows phoner), but once I get back in the States and get blogging again I’m definitely going to get onto Pinterest, revamp my blog a bit, and up my online presence :)
