Welcome! I’m Madi. A wife, mama to three boys, and a home chef. My love for cooking began very early in life. I can’t remember a time that my mom was cooking us dinner and I wasn’t sitting at the bar watching her every move. She will always be the best cook in the family, but I hope to one day be considered almost as good as her!
A little of my story, I have always been interested in food because I have food allergies. I’m allergic to peanuts and tree nuts, which means I have to be very careful when eating out or eating food I haven’t prepared myself. I read ingredient labels incessantly and I’m always on the lookout for allergy friendly food. Food has always been a source of anxiety for me but getting in the kitchen to cook and create meals for friends and family has helped calm my mind.
I started this blog as a way to keep my recipes in a place where all of my friends had access to them whenever they wanted! I chose the name Grace + Wine because as I said above I have three boys under 2.5! My house is crazy and I pray each morning that God gives me grace to be the best mama to my boys, and when I run out of grace, wine is there to greet me at the end of the day. My happy place is a house full of friends, good wine, and me in the kitchen. Thanks for coming along with me in this journey and I hope you enjoy the food! Now go grab yourself a glass of wine and get in the kitchen with me! If you make any of the recipes please use the hashtag #graceandwineeats so I can see what you’ve created!
