This post combines two of my absolute favorite things: cookies and photography. I have been in photography classes for the past four years. My photography classes put an emphasis on black and white film photography, and we have our own wet darkroom and developing chemicals. I have recently been working on a cumulative photography assignment that is centered on food and the role that food plays in culture; I have been photographing the start-to-finish processes of cooking and baking, and also document restaurants, cafes, and farmers markets in the surrounding area.

¡Bienvenidos!

Dear Readers,

My name is Sarah. My sister’s name is Elizabeth. We are two sisters, Maryland born and raised. Our childhood was a steady stream of delicious home-cooked food and awkward dinnertime conversations instigated by our doctor parents.  We now live in different states, but these early habits have not faded, and now traverse space and time to bring us together. We spend our weeknights sending each other great looking recipes, and sharing hilarious stories about our days.  Through this blog, we hope to bring a bit of our kitchen table and our sisterly love to you, delicious food and awkward chats included.

Bon appétit 😉
