Welcome and thanks for joining!

Since I can't have you all over for lunch, I'm sending a little gift - all the recipes you need to make your first Haitian meal. I hope you try them and fall in love with the fresh Caribbean flavor!

Remember, this is just a sneak peek - a few pages of the Cafe au Lait Cookbook. The full version is your go-to guide for simple, easy to make, authentic Haitian recipes. It also includes 2 other sections with simple baking recipes and everyday American and cross-cultural food that you can make from anywhere in the world.

So you have my email address, now what?

You'll be happy to know I'm not going to try to sell you anything. I mean, I'd love for you to grab a copy of the Cafe au Lait Cookbook, but I don't write emails about it.

All you'll get is notifications of my (usually!) weekly blog posts about my life as a white girl living in Port au Prince.

I married my handsome Haitian, Eliezer Pinchina, in the summer of 2020. We met while I was volunteering at an orphanage in 2015. I grew up in southwest Louisiana, trained wild mustang horses for awhile, worked for my accountant dad, and also spent a great 3 years teaching at a Mennonite school in Missouri.

Since everyone loves a good love story, here's a handy link to all of our juicy details!

Or if you'd rather, here's a podcast episode where I was interviewed about our story.

 

Nowadays, I mostly share little details of Haiti life and inspirations about living a life filled with faith and hope - even in the middle of imperfections. Links to previous posts, by category, are below.

 

I'm happy you're following along!
