Two Peas and Their Pod


Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any additional questions, please send us an email at:

How did you meet?

Josh and I met in Salt Lake City. We lived a few blocks away from each other and met at church. We started out as best friends…and eventually he convinced me to marry him. :)

How long have you been married?

We got married in June of 2008. It was a perfect day. To see photos from our wedding, visit the wedding section on our blog.

Why did you start a blog?

Honestly, I didn’t intend to start a food blog, it was an accident. Josh had his own blog while we were dating- he posted his outdoor adventures, family photos, and political views. Since we did a lot of cooking and baking together, I started posting some of our recipes and photos. Our friends and family loved them, so I kept posting more. I never thought other people would start reading the blog. I was surprised and excited when I started getting comments from strangers. Eventually, the blog transitioned into a full time food blog.

Why the name Two Peas and Their Pod?

Josh actually came up with the blog name. We were brainstorming and he threw that one stuck! Yes, we are adding a third pea to our pod soon, but we will keep Two Peas and Their Pod as our blog name. We will just have an extra helper in the kitchen:)

Does Josh really help in the kitchen?

YES! We love cooking and baking together. The kitchen is our happy place. We can whip up a tasty meal in no time. Four hands are so much better than two. Josh is really good at dough- I call him my dough boy:) He always makes the pizza crust, bread doughs, fresh pasta, etc. And yes, he even does the dishes. He is the best!

What is your favorite thing to make?

COOKIES!  I love creating new cookie recipes. Baking is a great stress reliever for me and cookies are just fun and comforting. Who doesn’t love a warm, fresh cookie right out of the oven?

Do you take all your own photos?

Yes. All of the photos on this blog are taken by us, unless otherwise stated. I have learned a lot about food photography since I started our food blog. The photos in my early posts may be a bit frightening, but I like leaving them up because this blog is a journey. All photos are protected by the Creative Commons License.

What camera and/or lenses do you use?

We have a Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12.2 MP Digital SLR Camera. I usually shoot with a 5o mm 1.8 lens.

Would you like to review a product or host a giveaway on your blog?

If you have a product that is relevant to my readers or you think we would enjoy, please email us at

Do you work full time jobs and do the blog?

Josh works full time, but I work from home on the blog and other freelance projects. I used to work full time as a health educator. I spent five years in the worksite wellness field. I loved my job, but the blog became a full time job on it’s own. I am happy and blessed to be able to blog for a living. I truly love what I do.
