hi! i'm molly. i like to cook, write, play music, and take photos. i recently moved from brooklyn to a farm on the north dakota-minnesota border, where my husband is a fifth-generation farmer. the farm life is pretty swell: i get to bake all day with wheat from our fields, hang out with my little flock of chickens, and hunker down for some very extreme (but cozy!) winters.
i graduated from juilliard with a degree in percussion but during my time in new york, i fell wildly in love with food. i currently spend most of time playing with food but still play music occasionally!
i've documented my life in journals since the day i could write, and since 2009, this blog has been an extension of that. most of my posts include recipes inspired by my jewish and asian roots and my new midwestern surroundings, bits about life around the farm, or tales from adventures near and far.
thanks for stopping by!!! 🤗
