Where Flavor Meets Family: The Heart of Our Kitchen!

Welcome to my kitchen where we celebrate food and family. My name is Sarah Allison. I’m a former corporate professional in the food industry turned food blogger, author, and photographer. I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, son, and daughter, along with our cat, Lucy, and our golden retriever Vida.  

On this blog, you will find family-friendly meals, dessert recipes inspired by my kids, and Mid-Atlantic fare. As a self-taught cook and baker, I’m fiercely dedicated to providing well-tested recipes and sharing everything I’ve learned along the way. I am always striving to develop maximum flavor with minimum effort.

I’m thankful you’re here to join me in this adventure.  By the way, Sass was my nickname growing up!
