Welcome to A Food Lover's Life! A Food Lover’s Life was founded by Chris & Sara Kennedy- a garden to table team, each passionate about a commitment to making their lives happy and healthy. Sara was one of my first food blogging mentors, so I’m incredibly excited that we’ve decided to join forces. I’m Callie Quinn, founder of Binge Worthy Bites. Binge Worthy is also a food blog showcasing recipes that range from healthy to comfort food. I have an extensive background in design and photography, and much like Sara and Chris, I’m extremely passionate about gardening.
Although I will be at the reins of A Food Lover’s Life moving forward, as Sara graciously turned over her site and amazing recipes to me when she was ready to move on to a new chapter, you’ll find all of the original content here as well as brand new recipes. My vision is to create helpful bridges between Binge Worthy Bites and A Food Lover’s Life. Sara and Chris have built an incredible library of tutorials and gardening tips in addition to her recipes, and I’m really looking forward to expanding it.
While Sara navigated a lifetime of cooking and baking both at home and in professional kitchens, I come from a family of restaurant owners and people who genuinely love to cook. Recipe development and testing is one of our family’s favorite pass times. While my background started in digital photography and design, I was drawn to the creative influence of developing my own recipes and food content. I assisted in graphical menu designs for several restaurants and found a whole new opportunity for an artistic outlet with recipe creation. My recipes have influences from all over the world and I love sharing any tips and tricks I’ve stumbled upon as I fine-tuned the recipes I share.
My husband Aidan frequently helps with not only taste-testing for the blogs, but custom-designing gardening equipment to support our ever-growing garden. It started with self-watering deck planters and has expanded to self-watering, raised planters with heated enclosures for our produce that is more susceptible to the temperamental Chicago area forecasts. Aidan is an architect by trade, but our mutual love for DIY projects has evolved into numerous products we’ve designed (and he’s built) to complement our efforts with Binge Worthy Bites and A Food Lover’s Life.
Aidan and I want to continue to encourage your endeavors in growing your own food, and inspiration for cooking and baking. Please take a look around and stop by often. If you have questions or comments please let us know!
Thanks for visiting our corner of the internet!
Callie & Aidan Quinn
