Meet Me

Hi there! I am so excited that you are stopping in. I welcome you into my life OnHickory so grab a cozy drink & let me share a bit about myself!

Hey hey, that’s me on the right, Adie, with my wonderful mama who taught me the ins & outs
of the kitchen & how to fall in love with cooking

I believe that life is lived to its fullest when shared with those around you. I cannot express to you how much I have learned through other people whether it is a life lesson or new skill to tuck under my belt. In my own life, many moments of connecting & learning from people are centered around food. I mean, who doesn’t love food?! From learning how to raise chickens for fresh eggs, tossing tortillas in the kitchen, or meeting up for lunch, there is power in the connecting factor of delicious ingredients.

One of my main passions is cooking & baking. I was a child raised in a foodie to the max family where we were always learning about food, trying new flavors, & looking at food origins. For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed being in the kitchen experiementing with new recipes & having others teach me their favorite dishes. There’s a picture of my sister & I as toddlers wearing chef hats as tall as our bodies & flour sprinkled over our faces as our mom taught us how to make biscuits. To me, this is a picture of how there is more to food than eating it, but a medium to experience other cultures, bring people together, & connect with one another as my family did at dinner time.
