Quality time with friends and family

shouldn’t be rare. 

Rediscover time together

by gathering around good food

You dream of time well spent, but you’re wasting it trying to do all the things. 

You’ve been on Pinterest, You’ve been on Instagram. 

You could *never* host a dinner party like that, so why bother… 

But, you’re craving a deeper connection with the people in your life.

Have you ever said these things to yourself?

  • “I’m desperate to spend time with my people.”
  • “There has to be an easier way…”
  • “How come Ina Garten is so happy when she has people over?”

Yet, you go on about your life, wondering if it will ever slow down so you can enjoy it…

Simplify the ability for people to spend time together.

You're hosting dinner, and you’ve got two things in the oven, your stress level is rising, and the doorbell just rang… EEEK!!

Tell me, friend, have you thought about any of these?

  • How do you keep the prep simple so you can enjoy the event instead of being in the kitchen the whole time?
  • How can it be the nicest AND simplest at the same time?
  • What are the easy crowd-pleasing dishes?

Have you ever wanted to ask someone the questions you think you should know...

  • Like, what the heck is queso fresco, and why isn’t it melting into white queso like at the Mexican restaurants?!

  • Or,  I need a cheeseboard for two on a budget, what do I put on there, and how do I make it look like the ones on Instagram?!

When was the last time you truly enjoyed a gathering

with your people? 

  • Where you didn’t stress about having recipes timed correctly... 
  • You didn’t stress about ‘tablescapes’...
  • You didn’t stress about missing everything...

When was the last time someone didn’t interrupt your conversation during a party…

When was the last time you truly enjoyed your party and didn’t have that dreaded “Why am I doing this?!” feeling…
