Hello, Rachael and Natalie here…
This past spring, a completely novel idea sprung up between us two sisters. Someone said that we should make a food blog. At first, we didn’t think much of the idea, but as school wrapped up and we began our summer (Yes, no more classes!), food blogging began to seem more and more enticing. And so, we mulled it over and decided to create A Great Pear, a blog to document our culinary expeditions as sisters.
I, Rachael, am slightly obsessed with food blogs—some of my favorites include Lady and Pups, Two Red Bowls, and What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today. Other than obsessively cooking, I also play the saxophone, like to draw, love to write, and have a passion for skiing. I dream of becoming a travel writer traversing the globe with a notebook, a camera, and my ski bag.
I, Natalie, am a bit newer to food blogs, but I share the same passion for cooking as Rachael. I have been cooking since I could walk, yet I do have several other hobbies. I love playing the flute (and piccolo!), anything cat related, and hanging out with friends and family. I aspire to be a doctor, travelling the world to help people in need. But of course that means I spend a lot of time studying, so I am excited to have this creative outlet to fill up my extra time.
So, yes, we still live with our parents, seeing as neither of us have even graduated high school yet. Our whole family loves to cook, and it is surely because of our parents good tastes and love for the kitchen that us sisters can properly cook. So thanks, Mom and Dad, for all of the love, encouragement, and good food.
