About Emily

Hi folks! I’m Emily.

In Seattle Central Library

I work at the North Carolina Museum of Art and live in Raleigh with my husband, James, beautiful baby boy, Max, and cute little dog, Roo.

I started food blogging after reading washingtonpost.com’s food blog, A Mighty Appetite’s Valentines Day post. But you can also read my own interpretation of why I love to cook. .

Bottom line: Life is too short to eat mediocre food.

    Before you move to N.C. to open up your dream cafe…could you give me a crash course on all things food? You are a pro!

    Sounds like we share a love of our Mamas and their kitchens!

    I’ve started a blog and an underground restaurant in DC in honor of my Indian heritage and my mother’s kitchen.

    Check it out or come join us at HUSH:

    Please open it North of Strickland. Apparently all the “other” coffee houses don’t seem to think us folks up here drink coffee.

    Emily, i love your stuff! Suddenly Seattle’s feeling fall today, too – so veggie chili it is! Glad DC is cooling off, too.

    Sending love to you and James. Cheers,

  8. Hi Emily! I’m a 14 year old and I belong to Judea Reform; my mom forwarded me the link to your blog because she thought it was super cool (which it is). My blog is lenaslunchbox.wordpress.com if you’re interested!

    Hello Emily,
    I came across your poppyseed bread recipe on the internet. Anna (Butenas) Yesenofski is my Great-Great Grandmother. I inherited the recipe from my Great Aunt Helen and have been making this bread for years. I hope to hand it down to my children someday…
