About the Blog

One of the first things my friends will tell you about me is that I love to cook, to feed people. For me, food is about so much more than just eating or cooking. Sharing a meal around a common table brings people together. It sparks conversation, creates happy memories, and strengthens our relationships with one another. Food and community are inextricably linked. Neighborhood barbecues, church potlucks, and family-nights of Chinese takeout and evening T.V. all have one thing in common: people and food are the recipe for these connections.  

The problem is people have lost their taste for cooking and eating around the dinner table together, so we are starved for connection. We are hungry for opportunities that allow us to celebrate and come together, to share our stories and experiences, to live abundantly and fully. Eating together is such a simple act, and requires very little of us, but its significance cannot be overstated. 

The importance of enjoying a meal with family or friends — of cultivating community — has motivated me to create this online space where people can find easy and tasty recipes. There is something for everyone here whether you’re a seasoned cook, craving to learn more about the culinary world, searching for inspiration, or simply hungry. 

About the Blogger

Hi! I’m Taylor, and I’m the creator of Serving up Spice. I’ve always loved being in the kitchen and I’m a writer by nature. A recipe-focused food blog seems like a natural way to combine two of my favorite things: food and words. The recipes you’ll find here are approachable and uncomplicated — the same way I like to cook and eat in my own kitchen!

I do have some help running the site, and you can find a picture of my cute coworker, Andy, down below.

Let me know if you want to see more of lil Andrew, and I will be happy to oblige.

My life is pretty much dedicated to the blog but I also enjoy: painting, attending St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, spending time with my besties — B.J and Patty (we like to call ourselves 3 Bitter Bitches or 3BB for short), and playing sudoku.
