Abbey Kitchen is a lifestyle blog run by sisters Ash and Allison Abbey. It’s a healthy serving of fashion, food, culture, and wellness.
We launched Abbey Kitchen in the summer of 2015 as a nutrition and wellness focused food blog. Our recipes highlighted the positive importance of eating whole foods. Throughout the year, we were gifted with some rad opportunities as we collaborated with a local farm’s CSA program, and even popped up behind the morning bistro counter on Fox 10 Phoenix News (where our nerves mostly got the best of us) to share healthy tips and holiday recipes with the local community.
After a year of spilling and burning many recipes in our small apartment kitchen, we rediscovered what our kitchen space truly means to us.
Our kitchen is undeniably the heart of our home. It’s become much more than a place to host our cooking creations. It’s the place where we daily connect to each other; having intimate sister time on our terribly battered, wooden bar chairs. It’s the place where we daydream about future adventures and road trips — our fridge is covered in old photos and souvenir magnets, daily reminding us of our sister trips. Our kitchen is also the place where Ash can sprawl out her fashion magazines, circling her favorite quotes, designers, and editorials in pen. It’s the place where Allison spills her post-workout fruit smoothies over her nutrition homework, muddling up her glycolosis notes. It’s also our beauty chem lab, where we grime up our dishware as we blend and mash-up pantry staples to create some funky smelling (but hella effective) face masks.
Really… our kitchen is simply us. It holds every piece of who we are. And so, we wanted to expand our passion for living a wholesome, educated, adventurous and confident life. So, as we continue to share our healthy kitchen recipes with you, we’ll be serving up our other passions which is only gonna make you one smart, badass, stylish, healthy chick — so please, grab one of our crappy, wooden chairs and make yourself at home in our kitchen.
