Tomato coppa salad - The Hungry Shepherds

One of the best things about being married? Cooking and eating together and with friends in our new home. It’s so wonderful! We Shepherds love cooking on our funny, avocado green stove and having friends crowd around our small table, bumping elbows as we eat and drink together.

To document our eats as a smaller fun side thing, I started the Hungry Shepherds.The words “food blog” sound way too daunting, as does calling this a side-project, ha. I’m also not the best recipe follower or developer, so the other thing I avoid by not calling it a food blog is posting detailed recipes. Most of these meals are taste-and-see, or combinations of recipes I read about, but I will try my best to at least link to the recipes dishes are inspired by.

Being able to host old friends and new friends has been so life-giving and joyful for us as newlyweds. We’ve experienced so much hospitality and love from other folks who have invited us over to their homes, and are so excited we get to do the same.

Hope you’ll follow along the hungry Shepherds’ cooking adventures and find some tasty things to make in your own kitchen!
