Hi! We’re glad you stopped by.
The Short “About Us” Story
What you’ll find here is a collection of stories interjected between simple recipes inspired by our flannel wearing, cabin dwelling, maple syrup & marzipan covered Vermont life. I’m a kitchen mess maker, sprinkle hoarder and cockapoo mom.
Want to know more? read on…
This is us, Aimee and Loki. I’m the gal, Loki is the cockapoo.
What’s a Loody?
Loody is the nickname that my grandma gave me when I was little (and still calls me…). My grandma and I use to make a royal mess of her kitchen fishing eggshell out of the cookie dough, whirling the Foley Mill at max speed for making raspberry jam and rolling up my favorite pinwheel pie crust cookies. So in short, I’m a Loody.
So what kind of blog is this?
Like I said before, what you’ll find here is a collection of stories from our life (hem hem, tons of Loki pictures) interjected between simple recipes, mostly desserts and baked goodies (occasionally a savory dish). Oh and I promise you will not find any dessert recipes here laden with cans of beans. Life is too damn short for that.
You won’t see my 40 square foot kitchen featured in Apartment Therapy with its ancient gas stove that cranks up to 500° whenever you set it to 350°, no dishwasher (sob), zero counter space and refrigerator that is leaning towards the wall and causes all the veggies to roll towards the back and freeze. We won’t even talk about the lighting situation (okay, its mostly resemblant to the yellow lighting in an interrogation chamber). No, it’s nothing to write home about or snap gorgeous “Kitchen Reveal” or “A Peek Into My Kitchen” photos for future posts. BUT, it gets the job done and I’m still here, whipping up some delicious treats for you.
A little bit about the gal and pup…
We currently live in
Boulder, Colorado Burlington, Vermont. I’m from a small town in Upstate New York, but Mr. Teeps is a Colorado Native. He wanted to get that bumper sticker for his car, but I wouldn’t let him. We recently made the trek back across the ol’ US of A and are loving Vermont so far.
I like yoga, running, shredding pow, baking all the things, traveling, reading, hiking, and camping. Basically all the things you need to like in order to pass your Colorado naturalization test (maybe its the same in Vermont??). Oh and if you have a dog, their leash MUST be made out of recycled climbing rope and a carabiner.
Loki likes long hikes off his climbing rope leash, chasing pinecones, swimming, sweet potato, stealing my pillow, and cuddling. Loki also goes by the monikers Mr. Teeps, Bompy and Loki Bear. So be prepared to see all those names. Loki is a cockapoo. That’s a cocker spaniel and toy poodle all swirled up into one energetic, needy, endlessly loyal, sweet hearted, too smart for his own good pup. Yes, I am obsessed with him.
You may also see this guy, my better half, from time to time. He’s from Boston, but we don’t hold that against him.
Thanks for stopping by! We hope you enjoy some good eats and reads here.
