Oysters to Pearls is a blog dedicated to being a source of inspiration for everyone who loves food (who doesn't; right?), fashion, travel, and family life. I started OTP as a food journal to basically keep myself accountable and as hobby/creative outlet, and then friends started inquiring about sharing my recipes, ideas for healthy dishes or an outfit that I was wearing. I am a wife and mother with a passion for healthy cooking, who loves a recipe-hack challenge. With Italian and southern roots, I formed an appreciation for the ability of food to create a special bond and bring diverse people together for beautiful memories and laughter. Certain smells still invoke wonderful memories of my childhood, sitting around my grandmother's table having coffee and biscotti and socializing with whoever might stop by. Cooking is my love language. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey. 

Be well, -Shannon
