Hi. I’m Ashley Stursa!

I’m not a fancy cook or a foodie, and I’ve never watched a cooking show.  In fact, I don’t even have cable TV.  I appreciate marvelous tasting food, healthful ingredients (usually) and the pleasure of sharing my creations with people I love.

My blog now has its very own PO Box!  Send me fan mail, letters, recipes, or whatever you feel like.  I believe hand-written letters and cards are special, and so should you!

FAQs:

Any photo tips?

Natural light is my best friend.  My photos are taken with light coming through the windows, not a flash.

Where do you get your recipes from?

A lot of times they come from me.  I think about food a lot and brainstorm ideas all the time.  It’s a passion and is always on my mind.  I’m hungry just thinking about it.

Otherwise, recipes come from a few places.  My mom, who is a great cook.  I use The Joy of Cooking for basic recipes and tweak them to make them my own.  I also have a few favorite food blogs I frequently read.
