About

We’re Jeff and Leah, one year married. Leah’s a dietitian, and writes a lot of the “batch” posts (recipes and writing about food and nutrition). Jeff’s an English teacher and writes a lot of the “narrative” posts (writing about writing and books and teaching). There’s a few stories up here that Jeff’s got published as well. You can read a little more explanation in a rare recipe by Jeff, and below is our story.
