hi. I'm sheena.

me +my man +two littles +crazy yellow dog 
all in a little red house.
 good food. trail running. yoga. exploring mountains. laughing. attempting to garden. road trips. not folding laundry.
 photographing......all of it.

I cook:

But I am not really a "cook". 
nope. I make stuff up. 
simple recipes with as many real, whole foods as I can cram in.
the recipes I post here are up for interpretation....add a little of this, take away that as you please. 
I'm terrible at measuring, and forget to do it often 
(except in baking of course, which I love to do)

I take pictures: 

I shoot with a Canon 5d Mark II (photos+video.)
I shoot mostly with a 35 f/1.4, a 50mm 1.4, and a 24-70 f/2.8 
I have several polaroid cameras (a little short on film though), 
and I also have fun with my instax mini and of course instagram.
I edit my photos with completely outdated software--Lightroom2 and and CS3.

thanks for stopping by:)

Hellooooooo! I'm so happy to come across your blog (via your naan recipes - yay!). It's lovely, and I feel incredibly happy for the half hour I just spent sitting here reading post after post (rather than washing those pesky dishes).

I'll be seeing you again soon!

Hello! I discovered your blog through pinterest, through this picture http://pinterest.com/pin/244812929713665907/.
I am an aspiring artist, and I was hoping that you would let me draw it? I am hoping to build up my portfolio and I would love to have this in it:)

Found your blog while looking for a recipe for apricot fruit leather. I just had to comment because it (your blog) has so much personality. It's a lot of fun.

Found your blog through a pin for Greek yogurt which I can't wait to try. I kind of explored site & found it very interesting. Was wondering if it was possible to subscribe to posts by email? Didnt see that option. Will follow on twitter & hope don't miss when u have new post in meantime. Thanks Deb

Hi, found your blog via Instagram and I was wondering if you take family photos. If so I'd love to get some info on your pricing. Thanks! anne@seantnichols.com

Hi! just started reading your blog and loving it. I had a giggle to myself at your comment of editing with 'completely outdated software' - the same as I use! It's just totally broken on me though so I have to make the scary (and expensive) move to the current CS. oh well...! I look forward to reading more. Rachel

A nice story of your home and it seems like an ideal home. The name is also an attractive one. The red house. I will share it here too: http://heavensentcleaning.co.nz/window-cleaning

Hey Sheena,
I love so much about your blog. I've been a loyal reader, but this is my first comment. I was hoping that you would post more photos of your home! Any glimpses I've had through your blog (more of your last home, I think), seem to say that there's more to see! :)
Thanks for such great photos and awesome recipes. Your latest cookie recipe was devoured in record time! :)

Hi Sheena! Found your blog via Pinterest. A post from 2011 on your favorite places to eat in SLC. I have to agree and so many places we haven't tried yet too!

Great blog...I feel like we have so much in common. I love trail running, when I get a chance...my hubby and I have a little 2 acre homestead in Montana and a nine year old boy. Funny the internet connections. Thanks for the inspiration. We have a woefully out of date blog at
Perhaps I will start updating it again.
