Sara Morris of the food blog Sprouted Kitchen announced her engagement online last week. She is marrying Hugh Forte, her longtime love and co-producer of the site. He takes the photos and she cooks the food. We're guessing that if their marriage is anything like the blog, they are in for a beautiful and fruitful partnership.

Morris received the blog last spring as a gift from Forte for her 25th birthday. At the time, she'd been following a few other blogs and dreamed of some day opening a small catering company or restaurant and naming it Sprouted Kitchen. When she got the blog, the name just fit. When asked to describe Sprouted Kitchen in her own words, she seemed surprised: "I think it kind of speaks for itself if you see the images. It is natural and journalistic in style, and the recipes are fresh and approachable.”

They are. Morris takes inspiration from everything around her -- other blogs, cookbooks, magazines -- but does not like to follow rules: “I appreciate other ideas and move things around to make them my own.” Her recipes have a clear seasonal and quasi-healthy bent -- Vegetable Eggs Benedict, Farmhouse Carrots and Warm Asparagus Salad with Basil + Mint Pistou -- without being health food.

Far from it, in fact. She cooks in the Mediterranean style, relying mostly on fresh produce, citrus and whole grains, which is much different from how she grew up eating. "My mom was not a cook. We ate a lot of grilled chicken and cucumbers with ranch dressing. The focus was on eating together and talking, which is really the most important part of food." She's right. But if you can talk and eat Honey Roasted Pears with Greek yogurt, why not do that?
