I’m Erin and I’m glad you’re here. This is the little space where I share recipes, simple thoughts, and a few of my favorites.
I’m searching for the big stories in the little things. When I write about food, it’s never just about food – what is equally as important as what is on your plate is who is beside you, where you are, and how you got there.
Sharing food is, for me, like confession. With what I make with my hands, I reveal a little bit of my creative spirit. Along with the ingredients in a dish there is some the past, reflections of those who came before me and made me, and a hint of what is to come. You can’t always taste it, but it’s there.
I thrive on sunshine and close relationships. I prefer simplicity and quality in all things, and particularly in the things I surround myself with. I am a military wife, a daughter, a granddaughter, a great-granddaughter and a friend. I aim to be a lifelong learner, and I always have a book or two in my hand or on my bedside table. I am a list-maker, a goal-setter, and a recovering perfectionist.
When not in the kitchen I’m probably on a long walk along the river, searching for new flavors in another city, writing or trying my hardest to keep my plant collection alive.
New to little dutch wife?
This blog has changed a few times in the last year, first with the design and then with the direction of the content. I strive, however, to always keep my little corner of the world honest and true to life.
Mostly I write about food and the simple details of a simple life. Here are a few of my favorite posts: a recent trip to the thrift store, super-C sorbet, ash wednesday and the beginning of the lenten season, zucchini hummus, growth, curried coconut pumpkin soup, decadent coconut buttercream frosting, number six, sweet potato hash and a story, man salad.
