My Story

Willa Friday* loves good food, and she loves a good glass of wine, so after years of working in restaurant kitchens, and then styling food, she decided to start a blog. Living in the heart of wine country in the Sonoma Valley she naturally had to add wine into the mix.

Willa’s passion for food and lack of time had her turning to meal prep. Meal prep enabled her to eat the luscious foods she craved, and save time. As the owner of a restaurant, time for personal cooking was at a minimum. Now, as a full-time blogger, time seems to be even more scarce.

The recipes shared on this blog are for people with real lives, people who don’t have hours each day to spend in the kitchen, even if they love to cook.

You’ll see recipes and meal prep ideas. Willa will share clean eating recipes, but she also likes to get dirty, so there’s that.

Lots of posts on great kitchen tools to make your life easier. And maybe a post or two on food styling and photography.

Stay tuned, because Willa’s passion for good food is contagious. And her wine pairings are excellent.
