I'm Elizabeth - previously blogging over at my Tumblr site. Welcome to Jam! 

In the Loop, my Tumblr blog, started solely as a blog, but, as most things do, molded into something slightly different along the way.

Throughout the past year or so, I’ve discovered how much I love pairing food with music. When I cook, I like to listen to music of all kinds: movie soundtracks, slow jazz, classic rock - a mix of everything. 

Nowadays, a particular song has the power to take me back to the memory of that food moment – whether it was the first time I baked bread or the 100th time I made my favorite granola for weekend visitors.

That's where Jam came into play. I settled on the name because this space really is a mix of things -- the tagline couldn't be more true. It's food and it's music, but it's also the life that happens in the midst of it all.

Here, you'll find recipes mostly inspired by the season, the music currently spinning around in my kitchen and my brain and everything in between. Thanks for stopping by!! 

I’m so glad you’re here. Write me at elizbatte@gmail.com if you'd like to chat about food, music, the latest book you've read - I'd love to connect with you!
