THE LAND O'LAKES BLOG — Bringing inspiration to those who share our love of good food. —


Writer for the
Land O'Lakes Blog

Born the ninth of ten children, Emily learned the art of cooking from watching both her food-loving parents create hearty, homemade meals for their hungry brood. An extensive collection of cookbooks were used to plan elaborate Sunday meals based on various world cuisines. Asian, Mexican, Greek, Indian – from entrée to dessert she’d share a culinary adventure that still sparks her passion for good food. 

Today, she continues the tradition of creating made-from-scratch meals for her husband and two children. With a “one-bite” rule for any new foods, she's managed to raise some fairly adventurous eaters. Home-grown vegetables and herbs in a few raised-bed gardens mean summers full of fresh produce, while her job in the Land O’Lakes Test Kitchen further “feeds” her obsession with all things food-related. Emily believes it’s possible to turn the necessary chore of feeding your family into a delicious shared adventure.
