About Me

Welcome! My name is Lauren and I’m a young married woman trying to juggle full-time law school and other things in life, and by other things I pretty much mean FOOD.

I was born in California and raised in Georgia, so I love making food that is inspired by Southern cuisine. I try my best not to mess with ingredients that were made in a lab or factory instead of in the earth. I believe that food is intended to heal, fuel, excite, sustain, comfort and thrill us!

But I also believe that eating healthy foods should NEVER feel like deprivation.

My husband Jason and I live in Williamsburg, Virginia (nicknamed “the ‘Burg”) where our law school is. Ironically, I used to vacation with my family in Williamsburg when I was a kid and used to look forward to going all year long. Now I live here! We both love the ‘Burg and are enjoying spending our first years as husband and wife here.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog! I hope you like what you find.

    As a fellow Knottie who avoids homework all weekend to cook for my husband, I love your blog! I have never had collard greens but your description makes my mouth water. I have only ever used it in my kale soup, but I think I may be trying your recipe! Enjoy the Oscars/homework 🙂

  3. I saw the name of your blog and had to come over and say hi. I love it! Such a cute name – and your wedding photo is gorgeous!

    Wow – I can’t believe I just found this blog! I am also a newlywed and first-year law student – and I almost went to William and Mary! I am always avoiding studying by cooking for my husband and myself (or hosting Easter Dinner for 12 people). I have thought about starting a blog but have no idea how…your blog is amazing! Good luck with Finals!

  6. Hello! Our blogs were both mentioned on saminacooks today, and I couldn’t believe it when I clicked on your link to find that I recognized your photograph! I hope you’re doing well… I’ll have to remember to check out your blog now. Cheers!
