Hey y'all, I'm Jae and I make healthy versions of my

favorite southern comfort foods. Welcome to my world of food!

Hello, it's nice to meet you. I'm glad you found your way here. I'm passionate about preserving southern recipes that  that I grew up on and clean eating. Here on my blog, I combine these two passions to create delicious healthy comfort foods that will either take you back to your childhood or introduce you to a new level of warmth and comfort.

How I started…

In 2015, my husband and I got engaged. My daughter and I moved to south Louisiana. After a few career trials and a short return to college, I decided I wanted to start a blog to share my faith. I then began, and then coaching, and even website building.

In November 2022, after finally building a successful business, my website was hacked, and I lost everything. That was heartbreaking, but liberating. It freed me to build what you see today.

 I've worked with all kinds of brands, and I've created content in every niche possible. I've made tons of money, and I have lost it all. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I'd be where I am today. I pray you find my story to be inspirational and motivating.

Some fun facts.

I went to the University of Louisiana at Monroe and I majored in Secondary English Education. I wanted to be a high school English teacher. 

Turtles and sunflowers are two of my favorite things. Ever!

Although I love baking, I prefer simple desserts. I don't like too much razzle dazzle when it comes to sweets.

I am a true crime junkie. From documentaries to books, I love a good mystery. If I wasn't a blogger, I'd be a forensic psychologist. 

I was vegan for a few years and although I eat meat and other animal products now, I still enjoy vegan meals and vegan desserts every day. 

My husband and I have four beautiful children together.
