About Us: The Story of You & Me
What once started as a simple food blog to document my recipes turned into a place where I get to connect with you and you get to connect with others.
To me, food always represented connection. It’s a way to bring people together but at the same time, it’s also a way to connect with yourself. Every time I step into the kitchen and watch Netflix while whisking my cake batter, I feel like I’m in my own cocoon. A soft, comforting cocoon.
Then one day I thought: “How can I bring the togetherness without leaving the cocoon?” As someone who used to run in-person cooking clubs, I know the joy and fun of cooking with friends and geeking about someone’s kitchen gadget. But, I also know how peaceful it is when you get to be in your own kitchen, with your own tools, and in that PJ you’ve been wearing since 8 AM. Out of that though is where Live Love Yummy & The Live Love Yummy Cooking Club was born.
Unique Eats Right From Your Kitchen
This community is meant to inspire you to be creative with recipes. We’re always trying to create rare dishes by trying new flavors and experimenting with techniques. Whether it’s a unique eat we tried at a restaurant or a dish inspired by a country, in this community we’re always up to trying something new and exciting, like my Oreo-Cheesecake Brownie. Think of it as the show ‘Unique Eats’ by The Cooking Channel, but this time you’re the chef.
Cooking as a Hobby
Some people play ball for fun, but you and me, we cook for fun. Cooking is our hobby and it’s time to make it official. Let this community inspire and motivate you to be intentional with your cooking project and do more of what you love.
An Ode to Self-Care Moments in the Kitchen
PJs or sloppy old shirt. Music on blast or trashy T.V. in the background. Ingredients everywhere or an impeccable mise en place. We honor your ritual and celebrate your creativity. At Live Love Yummy, you’ll find exciting and revolutionary recipe ideas and a motivating community that will encourage you to carve time for creativity. Time for yourself, honestly.
The Culture Over Here
Everyone sits at our table
We not only respect everyone, but we celebrate everyone. We’re empathic, inclusive, and supportive.
We're not afraid to go deep
This community isn’t only to talk food. Food brings up emotions and self-care is about feeling. We’re here for it.
Niks moet, alles mag
The Dutch way of saying, do whatever rows your boat. There are no ‘musts’ in the community only ‘cans’.
We Treat Recipes with Respect
Every recipe has a story or cultural background. Be creative but with respect to the source.
Leave it better behind
We do our part to contribute to a better planet. However small, big, or imperfect we make an effort to be sustainable.
We’re all here for each other. To connect with each other, be creative with each other, and relax with each other. I got your back and you got mine.
