Hey there.

I'm Mallory, a storyteller, writer, adventurer, avid reader and wanna-be-yogi. 

Stick around for adventures featuring my sassy af corgi and incredibly kind husband. 

Eat with your people.

Eat with your people.

Jake has been nagging me for years (not joking) about how many cookbooks I have that I never use. I also get 8 million magazine subscriptions to mags like Real Simple, Southern Living, Food & Wine and the list goes on and on. I cut recipes out and tuck them away in the recipe book I created in college. 

And then when I want to make something for dinner I head straight to Pinterest or Google for a recipe. 

NO MORE. 

I am taking the Sunday Supper Challenge (you know I love a good challenge). What is this Sunday Supper Challenge you ask? 

Here's how it is going to go down. 

  • Every Sunday, you have to make a homecooked meal ONLY using magazine/cookbook/previously written down recipes. 
  • You must invite your people over and feed them. For me, this is going to be small dinner parties/hangouts each with week with different people I want to spend more time with. 
  • No expectations allowed. This needs to be enjoyable and experimental. If the weird recipe from a cookbook my dad gave me is a complete flop, you are allowed to order pizza and move on. 

The end.

I took the first day of the challenge last Sunday with my BFF, Alex Anna, from Las Vegas and some friends! I made sloppy joes on biscuits with broccolini and strawberry cupcakes from Real Simple Magazine. I added a salad that I had in the fridge and of course some wine from Winc.

10/10 

Although, I sucked majorly at documenting it I took the challenge successfully and I even shared it with you despite the lack of photo evidence. 

It was a bit of a crazy week from Alex Anna visiting, to flying to Orlando with Jake to honor his grandfather in his passing, to running a 10k. Life is messy, really messy. And it just felt good to cook and bake for people I love and then just sit down with them without the pressure of creating a perfect blog post around the experience.  

Stay tuned for this Sunday's birthday dinner for a dear friend!
