Hi, we’re North Carolina natives Matthew and Molly (aka M&M). We both love food – from cooking to baking to trying new tastes at restaurants we visit while on our travels.
Once we got hitched, we decided to create a food blog together to share our love of food with our family and friends. We post easy recipes — things we’ve tried, things we’ve made up, things inspired by other recipes — and great restaurant food we eat while traveling.
So. Look no further for easy, unique, sometimes delightfully-Southern recipes and delicious places you ought to hang your hat in and sit down to eat for a while.
This space is not reserved for our critique of the good and bad we discover in recipes and restaurants. In fact, you won’t see anything on this site that we did not thoroughly enjoy ourselves. When we have a #FoodieScore experience so good we can’t stop talking about it for some reason, it finds its way here for others to discover and explore as well. Then, it’s up to you to determine if you want to try it.
Here’s a look at our history of lovin’ food. 🙂
Matthew’s food lovin’ history: The cheeseburger has been a constant in my life as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of Friday afternoon visits with Mom and Dad to Kim’s Kitchen, a western North Carolina diner that serves what is still the best burger I’ve ever eaten. (It’s all about the bun to meat to condiment ratio and the freshness of all those ingredients!) As I reached an age to safely operate a stovetop and eventually moved out on my own after college, I built a reputation among family and friends for making my own burgers and enjoying tasty treats, both savory and sweet, made by others. By 2012, I started using the phrase “foodie score” to describe delicious culinary experiences, and that’s when #FoodieScore was born on social media.
Molly’s food lovin’ history: Since the age of at least 11, I’ve been baking pies for my family and friends. It started out when I realized pies are easier to make than other baked goods, and it developed over time into a passion for making any and every kind of pie. A few of my favorites are: German chocolate, lemon meringue, key lime, brown sugar, blueberry, egg custard and pecan. These days, I love making any dessert, from homemade poptarts to lemon cream cheese bundt cakes to hundreds of cupcakes at a time for events!
In general, we both love food, and we both love sharing.
