Happy New Year! With the start of another trip around the sun, I’ve decided to shake things up around here. Lolly’s Sweet & Savory Treats is now Hickory Creek Lane. Over the past few years, I have enjoyed making food, taking lots of pictures, and writing stories to go along with what’s going on in my kitchen. I don’t publish blog posts as much as I’d like, but I still find this little hobby of mine fun and I felt it was time to transition with the changes that have occurred in our neck of the woods.
Most notably, we welcomed our little rump roast into the world two years ago and we followed that with a move from the suburbs of Columbus to the rolling hills of Walnut Creek. My focus on food has shifted from making more complicated recipes and trying new restaurants downtown to creating nourishing and simpler family meals that invigorate our lives. I have also come to love the beautiful backdrop that now surrounds us in Ohio’s Amish Country and I want to find ways to incorporate more about this unique community we call home.
As for the name change… the land on which we live is peppered with shagbark hickory trees and there is a gentle creek that runs adjacent to our driveway. Hence, Hickory Creek Lane. I’m excited for the new year and new home cooking adventures in Amish Country. I hope you will stop back again soon. 🙂
