About this blog
Hi! I’m Lauren, graphic designer by day (visit my professional site here) and amateur cook, baker and ice cream maker by night. In my free time, I try to create things with my hands, which often means you can find me making a mess in the kitchen! This blog is where I keep recipes created, altered or discovered—paired with illustrations by yours truly.

What is Minty's?
Minty’s is the name of a fictitious restaurant I created as a four-year-old. My sister would graciously play both the roles of maître d’ and waitress while I cooked in the kitchen. The very first dinner at Minty’s occurred the evening my mother came home from the hospital after my sister was born. My dad made angel hair pasta and pomodoro sauce—I most likely just stirred the sauce (since I probably wasn’t too much help in the kitchen!). Since then, Minty’s has flourished and followed us around the country. To this day, many birthdays and anniversaries continue to be celebrated at Minty’s.
