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.
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!
