Kathy and Michael Dean Reardon are the “aging hippies” responsible for newdeal kitchen, a chronicle of their love affair with food, both together and separately. They were married on August 3, 2008, and they live near the ocean in Pacific Grove, California.
Named for the caption of a customized apron received as a wedding shower gift, newdeal kitchen features recipes (which they call “receipts”) adapted from another wedding shower gift: a wooden box full of customized recipe cards, filled in with recipes from friends and co-workers.
newdeal kitchen also features a look at “kitchenalia” – the items we use to prepare, serve, and store food, as well as “where’s your kitchen?” – an attempt to build community by asking followers to describe and show where they prepare their food.
Finally, newdeal kitchen encourages healthy, fun eating at home. We’re taking a practical, realistic approach to eating a healthy diet that’s based on our dietary needs, while having the occasional splurge as well. To that end, we’ve adopted as our motto three little words: Eat. Well. Always.
Follow along with us as write our love story about food.
