What is this?

What happens when an Eagles fan marries into a Cowboys family?

They meet in the kitchen and make a few dishes to compete over. That’s what happens.

Enjoying Joe’s (her father-in-law) cooking each Sunday as they chide each other in gentle (sometimes not so gentle) banter, Chelley decided that a project was being born. That project is Carpenter in the Kitchen! It’s an on-going learning process we invite you to partake in. Save, alter, share… we are just a family trying to get along on the field and eat well in the process. Everyone meets in the kitchen for a good time and good food. We hope to incorporate some vlogs, pictures and family stories, but, most of all, offer up some great, simple recipes for you to enjoy.

Go Eagles!Go Cowboys!

Long live the rivalry!
