My name is Sarah. I live in and love Montana. I appreciate so much of what growing up in Montana has had to offer me: a love of the outdoors and the activities that go along with (skiing, climbing, camping, hiking), that small town feeling, and of course the beauty of the open land, majestic mountains and amazing BIG SKY.
I’ve been most comfortable in the kitchen from the time I was a teenager. Convinced I would finish high school and head straight for culinary school, then open my own restaurant, life had other plans for me. Even so, the yearly subscriptions to Cooks’ Illustrated (a birthday gift from my Auntie) and the one to Bon Appétit (another gift to my mother) kept me intrigued, and I always find myself coming back to something food-related, whether it be playing in my own kitchen, spending countless hours reading cookbooks or scouting out new recipes online.
I definitely attribute my love for cooking to time spent with my mother. Oh, how we looked forward to a new issue of Bon Appétit and the next new recipe we might try. My mom was never one to follow a recipe exactly, and I’m certain both my sister and I have inherited that trait. A pinch of this, a splash of that…Even now, my husband teases me about how a dish is never the same twice. But hey, he’s not complaining.
Over the last few years, I’ve been on a journey to find health and balance after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s (an autoimmune thyroid condition) and infertility. It has been a challenge, yet I am so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to learn more about not only my own health, but ways of adapting and making changes in our everyday lives that I want to be able to share here.
I hope that this space will satisfy my need to share as well as to cook and to write and to write about what I cook and that my passion for living and eating well is something worthwhile.
I’m no photographer, but that doesn’t stop me from snapping away with my iPhone and posting to Instagram when something strikes me as wonderful or beautiful.
My husband Scott has the role of taste-tester/guinea pig the majority of the time. Occasionally, the animals living with us (our sweet Golden Retriever and two cats: one sassy ginger and one lazy Siamese will get lucky and snag a morsel or two. From time to time, I get to travel and I absolutely enjoy trying new places that focus on quality ingredients and have a passion for how we nourish our bodies, both with food and wellness.
I hope you’ll follow along as I travel back and forth across the state as well as some other far off places.
Stay tuned as I dive in to find my way in the food and health writing world. -OhSarahMT
