Welcome to my blog and home and table! I’m Sandy—lover of food, family, cooking, charcuterie and cheese boards! We live in central Oregon, and I’m happy to share years of recipes with you, plus travel experiences, The Big Board ideas, and bits and pieces of our mountain home, sprinter van conversion, and Whoodle pup!

Welcome to my blog and table!

For many this blessing of gracious living for both the host and her guests never takes place because of fear, fear of failure, unable to cook, unwilling to share their lives with others, fear of deepening friendships, they are intimidated and think the meal has to be perfect, or they don’t have the lifestyle that says, “welcome.” [Above post, Epic Sandwich Charcuterie Board].

I believe in connection. I believe that Americans need to lower the expectations of perfection and open their homes to heart-warming dinners and in doing so, open their lives to LOVE!

Feasting on Life

Feasting on Life is real, and every time we do it, we grow a little more.

Food is love, but the actual act of serving and making others feel warm and welcome, wherever you are, is what I love.

Here on RE, our home together, I’ll show you how. Trust me, it’s easier than you think! Read all about what I’ve been up to the last 14 years of blogging, on my About Sandy page! Things have changed a lot, from my style back then [Lunch is Easy Entertaining]–  to now.

Grab some of my easy recipe ideas and let’s get started!
