A woman smiling for the camera, with Mary Younkin

Mary Younkin is the writer, blogger and photographer for Barefeet In The Kitchen. She has a passion for white dishes, funky forks, dark chocolate and fresh vegetables. 

On a perfect day, you’ll find her browsing a used bookstore, enjoying lunch with friends, or on a date with her husband. On a typical day, you’ll find her in the kitchen with three boys at her feet, flour on her face and a whisk in her hand.

Mary loves to travel and typically starts planning the next trip on the way home from the last one. Whether it’s time spent visiting family or a weekend away exploring a new city, the anticipation is part of the fun.

Feeding a crowd, taking cookies to a friend or planning snacks for a family movie night, sharing food and spending time with others are two of her favorite pastimes.
