Hi there. I'm Samantha. Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is a small space I've created, in my very own corner of the internet, to share my life essentials—my bread and butter—with you.

I have a deep reverence for [slow] food as an art form—as a way of expressing beauty, learning about the environment, and learning about ourselves. When produced sustainably and prepared with the highest-quality, locally sourced ingredients, food is not only delicious, it is rejuvenating and life-supporting in boundless ways.

My love for food is analogous to my appreciation for slow lifestyle: a way of living that is essential to human health and happiness, yet is absent in so many of our lives today. In our fast-paced world we often rush through each moment, forgetting to enjoy, savor and fully engage in what we do. I firmly believe this is the root cause of much of the suffering we see today—from disease, to poverty, violence, and war. If we could simply slow down and take the time to appreciate our most basic needs and most heartwarming necessities: each other, our food, and our environment...oh how our world could change, and how much more lovely it would be.

I hope you find something here that provides you with the inspiration to go out and do what brings you happiness. Whether that is to cook a beautiful meal or simply spend more time with the people you love, just remember: it is the simple, most basic things in life—the bread and butter—that matter most.

With love,
