creative handmade family cooking

A nourished lifestyle

Welcome to Skill It, a place to celebrate the joys and pleasures of living a handmade, home-cooked life. We believe that traditional, everyday talents, like cooking with whole foods and making things with simple, natural materials, remain essential for living well today.

We believe that working with your hands nourishes your soul and kindles your spirit.

To live out this mission, to celebrate the everyday pleasures of home, food, and family, we offer an ever-growing range of courses and resources to support and inspire your own pursuit of a vibrant, happy home. Each course is inspired by my own background and training as a mama, artist, and holistic lifestyle coach.

Season’s Eatings – this is the class that launched Skill It. It celebrates the joy of cooking and eating together as a family and shows you how you can include your little ones more in the kitchen. This is a two-week program filled with delicious recipes and extra activities, like our beloved Dinner Table Conversation Starters. The course has recently been re-designed to more deeply celebrate the joys and pleasures of eating and cooking with the seasons. Season’s Eatings begins on May 5th.


Heart & Soul Cooking – our newest class is a gift from us to you! It’s a 7-day journey that explores the everyday pleasures of cooking, eating, and gathering. It’s filled with inspiration, yummy recipes, and ideas for bringing a spirit of celebration to all the little moments we sometimes forget to notice.
