About LM


LM is the recipe developer and writer behind Savor + Harvest (with Karl). She grew up in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee with her biologist dad and artist mom. Her teenage and college years were spent on the trails of the Smokies or Big South Fork camping with her family and friends, doing trail maintenance, picking up litter, learning about biodiversity from her dad, and cooking with her mom.

After college and grad school, LM moved to the big cities of Boston and NYC to pursue a career in publishing. However, the hectic schedule of her job and daily life in the city made it hard to do the things she loves most: cook fun food and hike. So, now she lives in Maine and still works hard, but now gets to do more of the things she loves! 

LM loves the challenge and art behind creating unique and wholesome recipes. She has experimented with many different cuisines and diets, either out of necessity or curiosity. Most importantly, she likes to have fun in the kitchen, cook with Ryan’s veggies, and push herself to keep innovating the tastiest recipes possible! 

When she’s not in the kitchen, you can find her running around her local trails, commiserating with Ryan about their next camping trip, snuggling with our blog dog, Karl, reading, taking photos of random nature things, and spending time with friends and family.
