Like you, I don’t have hours available to spend in the kitchen making dinner. I’m a busy mom of 4, so simple comforting meals are what I create for my family.
And I want you to feel confident about making delicious & comforting recipes for your family and friends.
Hey, I’m Mary – the founder of Olive & Artichoke and I’m so happy you stopped by to say hi!
I started Olive & Artichoke in 2023 as a way to share our favorite family style meals. Many of these family recipes were a part of one of my other websites, Boots & Hooves Homestead.
I’ve been running that site since 2016, and decided that it was time to create a separate space for all of our best recipes.
I grew up in a big Italian family. I am actually the oldest of six children! And while growing up, food was the center of all gatherings. My grandparents moved to the US from Italy and Greece. So, I learned a lot from their life on the Mediterranean. And this is where I get a lot of my recipe inspiration.
Family dinners don’t have to be complicated!
Living on a rural ranch means that I need to be strategic with planning out healthy & hearty meals for my growing family!
As a busy homeschooling mom of four, I don’t have hours available to spend in the kitchen making dinner or running to the store for specialty ingredients.
I bet you can relate!
Here you will find easy to make comfort food recipes that are perfect for gathering around the dinner table – together!
