Fall is here, kids are back in school--and I’m definitely feeling  the shift in the season. From a carefree work environment to one with more structure. Seriously, my first day back from vacation at the end of August felt like October was booked already! With fall comes the smell of cinnamon, hot drinks, and cozy fires...but before I pull out my scarves or dust off my boots, I want to share some things that I learned on our break this [...]

Food Allergy Awareness + The “Original” Mary Lee Kitchen Cookies

By | 2016-05-17T15:13:29+00:00 May 17th, 2016|Categories: Blog, Gluten Free|Tags: , , |

Instead, I am using this time to reflect on the past several months I’ve been exploring the Mary Lee Kitchen recipe archives and trying out foods I know and love, but altered in small ways in order to be enjoyed by all. As I’ve mentioned before, [...]

Frustration, Confusion, + Food Advocacy

Everyday I wake up with uncertainty about what the day holds for me. I don't plan what I’m going to cook, nor do I really know the direction of my business. This becomes frustrating when I look at the rest of the world and see others with the appearance of having it together. I find myself longing for the day that I’m able to authentically look the part of confident businesswoman, but then I wonder: maybe I am not supposed [...]
