Welcome to my kitchen.  I am so glad that you stopped by!

I am June.  I am a wife, mother, high school culinary teacher, blogger, contributor to our local newspaper, practicing photographer and cookie enthusiast.  My life revolves around the kitchen and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  While I enjoy cooking dinner for my family every night, baking is what really makes my heart happy.  I live in a very small town in rural Oregon with my husband, Darby.  My two children {Taters and Tales} have both grown and moved away from home but we get to see his sweet girls daily.  No shortage of taste testers around here.  Of course, our family wouldn’t be complete without our Yorkie, Sage {aka Sagie}.  When I am not in the kitchen you can find me running and hiking with friends, traveling to visit my kids or watching the girls play ball.
