About Me

Hi, I’m Liz and welcome to my food blog, pumpkin & peanut butter! I’m beyond excited that you’ve stopped by! At little bit about me— I’m a twenty-something elementary school teacher currently living in Durham, North Carolina. I’ve been an avid food blog reader for years and finally took the plunge into creating my own blog in October 2014. This little blog has become my creative outlet over these past two years, challenging me to dabble in photography, recipe development, and writing in ways I never thought I could.

 

In my free time, you’ll find me cooking (duh), doing yoga or spinning, traveling (or planning my next getaway), playing with my 8-pound ball of fur, Augie, and hanging with my wonderful husband Nate. Nate and I just recently tied the knot, so check out some details from our wedding (and planning) under the lifestyle tab, including our engagement story and our wedding updates.

 

 

I’m so excited that you’ve stopped by to share in my culinary adventures! My relationship with food is as follows: eat healthy food, eat delicious food, and eat what your body tells you it needs. I eat a {mostly} plant based diet, focusing on the use of natural ingredients, whole grains, and plenty of fruits and veggies in my recipes. While I’m not a strict vegetarian (I still eat fish once in a while), I cook mainly vegetarian and vegan dishes because that’s what my body enjoys the most!

 

When it comes down to it, above all, I believe in balance—- balance in the ways we nourish ourselves, the ways we stay active, and the ways we achieve happiness each and every day.  I hope you find some things you like and can take back to your kitchen, wherever it may be 🙂

  2. Hi Liz! I hopped over here after you commented on my blog. Do you have a rose gold engagement ring as well?! I just read your engagement story post and I saw the ring. I have a rose gold engagement ring and I love it! I’m excited to follow along more with your wedding planning as well. 🙂

    • Hey Kaylin!! YESSSS I have a rose gold engagement ring and I love it so so much! I had actually pinned the exact ring on Pinterest and was so surprised when he gave me almost an identical one! I MUST check out yours 😉

  3. I love your blog! I’m from the Upstate of SC and was thrilled to see you live nearby. Always good to read a southern blog every now and then! I’m also plant-based and love your content. I’ll be keeping up with you and can’t wait to see what you do. PS: I’m a pumpkin nut too! 🙂

    • Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Heather! I also love finding bloggers that are nearby— but it’s crazy how few there are in this area! Can’t wait to check out your blog!
