Hey There...Welcome! 

So glad you could stop by.
My name is Erin. I'm the chef, baker and photographer here at Table for Seven.
I'm also a mom of six and have been married for 18 years.

Way back in 2011, I started Table for Seven. We were a very box-eating-processed-toss a frozen pizza in the oven kinda family.  

That changed when my oldest son's eating habits didn't. His diet consisted on maybe 10 items and he was not budging in trying anything new.  I dove into making everything on his small list homemade and a bit healthier. This steamrolled into expanding my cooking and baking skills (which were non-existent).  I have come along way since then, but, believe me, a frozen pizza or boxed mac n cheese still makes it way to our dinner table.  

I also never met a cake mix I didn't like.


My favorite people.
Here is what you will find at Table for Seven:

  • Lots of desserts: I like to cook, but, love to bake. My family is loaded with picky and plain eaters, so, main dishes are more of a challenge to get posted. I don't make food just to put it on the blog. It has to be something that at least a good portion of the people at our dinner table will eat. Hence, not as many main dishes. 👍
  • Cost efficient recipes: As mentioned, I have a good size family. Believe me, I know what it's like to live and cook on a budget. Nothing on here will cost your a small fortune to make and won't call for any extravagant or hard to find ingredients. 
  • Some packaged foods: I try my very best to give recipes that are totally homemade. However, some may call for a cake mix, frozen pie crust or refrigerator biscuits. Don't hate me, they just makes life easier sometimes. But, I do try and share what products I use for the recipes. Many are natural, organic or have a few less unnecessary ingredients as others brands.
  • Emojis: Sorry, I can't help myself. It won't be too many..promise.  👉👀❤🎂


Here is what you won't find at Table for Seven:

  • Long posts:  I'm not a very "wordy" writer..and I use the term "writer" very loosely. My posts are sometimes filled with a few personal stories, but, mostly, they are  notes about the recipes. I mean, that's the most important part of the post, right ? 😉
  • Food Videos: No, I don't have many food videos. I know, they are fabulous and the trendy thing to do in blogging.  For me, as a blog reader, honestly, I don't like them. I find them very disruptive when I try and read a blog.  Also, my kitchen lighting is horrendous and finding a space in my house to film videos at the right time of day, has been next to impossible. Perhaps, in the future, it will change. But, for now, there will be a minimum. 
  • An over abundance of sponsored posts:  Yes, I make money from this blog.  Mostly from ads. However, there are some sponsored posts in the mixed. They are only from brands/items that I would actually purchased for my family and feel confident in sharing with my readers.
