About Me

My name is Jeanne, and I love food. Eating it, cooking it, taking pictures of it and traveling to experience new versions of it. Food is a creative outlet. I wish I could paint or sculpt but it’s just not in the cards for me. I can however cook. It’s sort of my blank canvas.

We live out in the boonies in an old ranch house and Flo is my 1940 Norge stove. Yup, my stove has a name. She was probably brand spanking new when she came to this ranch house. She is pure cast iron cooking poetry. I wish she could tell her stories.

Along with my vintage stove, I also love vintage housewares. There is nothing like cooking with a well seasoned old cast iron skillet. I enjoy the stories behind their manufacture and appreciate the qualities that have allowed them to stand the test of time. I’ll share some of my favorites and why I find them so charming.

In my former life I was a big city girl, an airline employee, and a military wife after 9/11. For a long time I just wanted to stop the world and get off. Well, here we are, on a small ranch in the middle of nowhere New Mexico. Life is more interesting than you would expect….

This is Flo:
