Recipes By Heart


By Heart was founded by Paige Prather and Lauren Mirow Blankenship in the spring of 2011 in Portland, Oregon.

"We aim to highlight simple moments of everyday life.  We believe that cooking and sharing recipes can bring light to these moments otherwise left unnoticed. 

We are interested in collecting and preserving recipes that women know by heart and the traditions and stories behind them.

These recipes hold more information and power than we often bother to acknowledge. We strive to reveal this hidden information. 

We believe the act of recipe sharing is a gesture of honor to the listener, the storyteller, and to the recipe itself.  We strive to provide a platform for this to occur.

We hope these recipes bring more than merely nourishment to your table. "
