Hi, I’m Averyl.
I’m a makeup buyer by day, crafty cook by night and a domestic enthusiast every moment of the day.
I once had a boyfriend tell me that Thanksgiving is my Super Bowl and that’s just about right. I love to cook. I LIVE to cook and I’d rather be in a kitchen than just about anywhere else in the world.
While I love sugar and butter as much as the next gal, I also try to be mindful of health. Often on these pages you will see substitutions- a little whole wheat flour here, a little almond meal there- but never at the expense of flavor. I suppose that’s what you get when you’re raised in California by a doctor/ yoga teacher parenting duo, but so far I haven’t heard any complaints!
You’ll also see the occasional nod to my closet, or my sister’s closet or a post about my latest DIY project. I think high heels are the perfect compliment to heirloom tomatoes and I know, in time, you’ll feel the same way.
Thanks so much for stopping by. It really means the world to me.
