Hi there and welcome to Epic Harvest. My name is Caroline and I am in love with all things food. I am currently 20 and have been cooking and baking since the age of six. I have been passionate about food for as long as I can remember. Instead of cartoons in the morning, I would watch the Food Network, and instead of asking Santa for a new doll house for Christmas, I would ask for an ice cream maker or tickets to Emeril Live (best present ever!) 

For the past four or five years I have wanted to start a food blog. Last year I started one called Lime and Mint and posted on that for a short period of time. My busy life caught up with me and I wasn't nearly as diligent with cooking and posting as I would have liked. I just finished my first year of college and this summer decided I was going to really go for it. So after brainstorming names with friends, I decided Epic Harvest seemed fitting. I love to explore and have epic adventures in the kitchen, on the mountains, and in the ocean. Secondly, I strive to use the freshest, local ingredients when available, thus harvest seemed to conjure images of local farmers, growing beautiful and delicious produce. After the name was decided, Epic Harvest was born. 

This summer I have absolutely loved getting this blog up and moving. The food side was a given having known it was something I have wanted to do for a long time, but then I thought, why not post about my other passions? Adventure and the environment. I am currently on a month long, crazy van trip around the western portion of the US, therefore it seemed fitting to create a tab Epic Adventures to share my boyfriend and I's adventures. Secondly, I am studying environmental science and very interested in the problems our world is facing, and excited by the innovations coming forth to try and remedy some of our society's misdoings. The tab Epic Earth will be a space where I can share my fears, hopes, and thoughts on our current environmental situation. 

Now go explore the blog and have your own epic harvest and epic adventure while enjoying our epic earth!
