The human experience is best understood over food and conversation. 

Welcome.

Hi, I'm Angelina Danae.

I grew up in the Amish culture where faith, food, and community were pillars of everyday life.

Now as a young adult, I’m trying to sort through that experience to understand both where I came from and where I want to go.

Faith, food, and community are all messy, but they reveal much about ourselves. Join me here as I explore, question, wonder, and dream. My hope is that you'll also uncover some grace for your heritage and wonder for your future.

30 before 30

This is my public journal of accomplishing 30 different goals in 5 years. Some are big, some are small. Follow along!  

Write a book.   This goal is almost as old as I am. I love writing. I thrive on words. I wish I could eat them, that's how much I love them. And writing a book? That just sweetens the deal. It may never be read by anyone, but completing the act of writing it is a gift I need to give myself.

Adopt a doggo.   Doggos and puppers rule ALL! This one has been in the works for a few months, and we can't wait to rescue a sweet doggo (older dogs) or pupper (little puppy) and welcome him/her into our home and our family.

Cook with anchovies.   Anchovies are scary. They look scary, I assume they smell scary, and they likely taste scary. BUT, I'm trying to make myself get out of my food comfort zones to cook the things that scare me. So, if YOU have any favorite recipes that call for anchovies, share please!

Catch my dinner in Maine.   For some reason, Maine has always intrigued my heart. I think I'd like to have a home there someday, MAYBE. But for now, I'll settle on a fresh dinner near the ocean, buried in the forest.

Read through the entire Bible.   I've started and stopped more times than I can remember, and I've missed so many valuable and sweet stories.

Own chickens.   I mean, c'mon. Do you know how GOOD farm fresh eggs are?! Plus, this goes perfectly along with my dream of living on a farm and raising/growing most of my food.
