About Me

Hello & Welcome to Our Love Language is Food!

I’m so glad you’re here.

Meredith Headshot

Elevating the everyday through easy family friendly recipes, healthy eats, yummy treats, and delicious drinks. 

Let me introduce myself. I’m Meredith. A photography nerd who loves to cook, bake, and mix drinks to share with my loved ones. 

Growing up in a tight-knit family in the Midwest, so many of my favorite memories were made around a big table sharing food that everyone helped to prepare. I started Our Love Language is Food to help other aspiring cooks and bakers feel confident in the kitchen so they can bring these types of experiences into their home too. 

Keeping meals interesting, fun, and easy.

My husband and I love spending time planning fun meals and working together in the kitchen. Our kiddo is also learning to help and has fun making yummy food with us now too! This is one of the reasons I’m here. I want to share this joy of cooking, creating, and experimentation with you!

My goal is to provide you with awesome recipes to share with your family and friends, taking the guesswork out of it for you.

Simple, local, and seasonal ingredients.

I’m a big advocate of using what you have and purposely use standard pantry items for most of my recipes (there are some exceptions…hello matcha powder!). I do this because I believe cooking and baking should be approachable for everyone.

I do my best to eat seasonally and like to use ingredients grown and produced locally. I tag my recipes by season when applicable so you know when the fresh ingredients in that recipe are in season. This gives you the opportunity to look for these ingredients at your local farmers market. It also lets you know when you will find the very best version of these ingredients at your local grocery store.

Let’s get cooking!

You do not need a big, fancy kitchen with all kinds of special gadgets to create amazing food. A few basic tools, a good attitude, and a willingness to have some fun in the process is all you need.

So let’s dive in and make something delicious!

Fun Facts

Did you know?

I spent a decade as a vegetarian. While I’ve incorporated meat back into my diet, my family continues to make at least half of our weekly meals meatless.

My mom and I have an annual Christmas cookie baking marathon. We typically make at least a dozen different kinds of cookies, including family favorites and new cookie flavors we haven’t tried before.

I love everything breakfast. Breakfast foods, making breakfast, going out for brunch with friends… breakfast is just the best!
