Welcome to my table!

My name is Abby. I love eating. I’ve always loved eating. But what I love more than eating is eating with friends. I’m a 31 year-old lover of all things food, Jesus, decor, and my 9-year-old Papillon Baylor and a spunky puppy named Mowgli!


I didn’t go to culinary school to learn to cook nor did I watch a ton of YouTube videos to learn. Cooking for me is therapeutic. The kitchen is my happy place. And originally - that was the goal of my Instagram handle: encourage you that getting food on the table is not an exact science - it's a fun journey.


Let’s be real. I mess up food a lot, but the goal is to sit down at the table with friends.

Why is the table so important to me?

Some of my fondest memories have happened around a table. It’s a place where memories were made as a child with my family, It’s a place where I brought new friends, and had deep conversations with old friends. The table is meant to be a deeply personal experience.


Jesus designed it that way. His last deeply personal moment with his closet friends was around a table. In Revelation 3:20, it says “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone heard my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Another translation says “and I will sit at the table with him and we will break bread together.”


There are so many references to the table in the Bible and Jesus’ entire ministry was done while eating with people. His food was never extravagant, in fact we don’t know what He ate. Because that isn’t important. What is important was that Jesus desired to sit around a table and share a meal. He knew that when people sit down together around a table and share a meal - life happens. Things change. Brokenness happens. Peace happens. Joy and Laughter happens. Most importantly, our stories are shared around tables. Embrace them!
