Although we both had a heart for simplicity long before this season of life, we really started taking minimalism seriously three years ago. The first time we unintentionally pared down our possessions was in preparation to move to Portland, OR determined to only own what would fit in our honda civic coupe.
However, since that journey, it’s become something much more important to us. Primarily, it’s given us the freedom to pursue what we find most meaningful in work and life.
Minimalism now challenges each part of our life – everything from how many shoes we own to how many ingredients we use.

Why minimalist baking?
This newfound love for simplicity has infiltrated all areas of our lives, including cooking. We don’t like recipes that require a ton of ingredients or equipment. Not only does that require more time spent hunched over a bowl and cleaning up messes, it translates into less time with friends, each other, and just enjoying life.
That’s why all the recipes we share are easy and practical to make.
We try to use as few ingredients as possible to help keep our budget and pantry in order.
We utilize minimal equipment, owning only the equipment and appliances we really need.
And most importantly, we love recipes requiring short time commitments, leaving more time to just do life and less time loading the dishwasher.
This is an approach to food we not only believe in but live out daily. And we hope you find it as appetizing as we do.
