Hi, I’m Courtney. I am a wife and mom who thinks good food tells a story, and I love sharing that story with my readers. I share accessible recipes focusing on fresh, seasonal ingredients and plenty of sweet treats.
I started this blog in 2008 as a way to chronicle recipes I was making as a newlywed. Along the way, my husband Eric became interested in cooking and baking, and we’ve been unstoppable ever since. Our palettes have grown and expanded the same way our confidence in the kitchen has. Neither of us has any training, but we do have a lot of experience (along with the burns and occasional failures that come with it). We love trying new recipes and techniques and are constantly pushing each other to do so. No matter what we’re making, we always have fun doing it. We hope this blog will help us continue to learn and evolve in the kitchen and inspire you to spend time in the kitchen with the people you love.
We currently reside in Central Virginia and love all the wonderful foods, wines and craft beers the area has to offer. And yes, our last name really is Champion.
