Hi. I’m Mary Lynn. This is George. We’re obsessed with all things food and drink.


It all started in 2012 when we were planning for our May 2013 wedding. We were trying to decide on wedding favors, and were pretty sure we had our hearts set on custom old-fashioned glasses with our wedding logo printed on them. We love a good cocktail (especially Manhattans and Old Fashioneds) so it only seemed appropriate. A cute and practical keepsake that’s not super expensive? And fits our personality? Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Or so we thought. Until my best friend’s wedding and I noticed how many of her favors were left on the tables. Including my own. I forgot about it. There was so much going on that I forgot it was even there online gaming. So that got me thinking… I don’t want us to invest in something like personalized glassware for 130 people, only to find that 90 of them have been left behind. Talk about sad face! And how many of them really want a glass with our wedding logo on it hanging out in their cabinet for years to come? So it was back to the drawing board.

After brainstorming a bunch of ideas, we finally settled on a wedding favor that would be both cost effective (yay), super personal, and something people might actually use and enjoy. And if they’re all left behind, no sweat. So how about a recipe book? A little recipe book, just a few sheets of 8.5×11 paper, folded and cut to a cute little keepsake. Everyone in our lives knows how much we love to cook, eat, and go out to fun and/or fabulous restaurants. They also know how much we love to talk about it and incessantly post our dishes online as if we were photographing our own children (FYI, we have no children). Being graphic designers, we have the skills to create it ourselves, so that was it. A recipe book of our favorite personal recipes. The question was, what do we call it? We couldn’t come up with anything we liked, but we did startgaming making fun of ourselves and our messy, unglamorous kitchen life and our stained aprons. I think George said “Stained Aprons and Strong Drinks” and at first we thought “Meh, too long.” That’s the problem with thinking of something fun and catchy. The length’s got to be right. But after sleeping on it, it’s the title that stuck. It just felt right, because that’s who we are. We’re kind of a mess, with gross aprons that we should probably wash more often (hey, honesty’s the best policy), but we’re always armed with a beverage in our hand when we’re in the kitchen.

After we created the recipe book, we loved idea of continuing that journey through a blog, and that’s where we are today. We would’ve started it sooner, but we had two other weddings to get through after our own. Launching on our 6 month anniversary would’ve been super cool, but that proper organization and planning didn’t dawn on us until 2 days beforehand. Which brings us to a random December launch! It is sure to be a work in progress so bear with us while we learn and grow. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the content we bring your way!
