I’m Caroline Steffens, a lover of the finer things in life including food, fashion, and travel. I have three sisters who I cook with, two dogs I hike with, and one set of amazing parents who support all of my endeavors. My sisters and I were raised on freshly cooked meals, playtime outdoors, and the entertainment of each other. Often you’ll find these things on my snapchat, which was the original inspiration for this site.

One of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving because my sisters, parents and I will each pick a dish to make through countless hours of browsing and planning… let’s just say I don’t settle on a recipe until I am 100% sure there isn’t a better one out there. This years production was one of the biggest yet, a spread with traditional dishes as well as unconventional ones, such as Yotam Ottolenghi’s root mash with wine-braised shallots, my sister Isabel’s specialty.

When creating a recipe, I like to focus on simple ingredients that deliver a lot of flavor… think delicious spices, rich sauces, and plenty of toppings for texture. Most of my recipes are adapted from inspiration I find online and in cookbooks, as I really like to be creative! You’re definitely welcome to modify them however you need to in order to accommodate your lifestyle.

I hope my lifestyle site motivates you to be the best version of yourself by spending time outdoors, cooking fresh and clean food, and indulging in life’s simple pleasures.
