about meHey, y’all! My name is Rachel Richards, and I’m a shameless food pusher and shutterbug living the desert southwest life. I’ve got a major salty tooth, and I know I’m not the only one. So, I’m sharing my collection of savory favorites for the salty tooth in you.

I believe the best food is the most accessible. It may not always be the prettiest or priciest. I’m here to highlight the humblest of recipes and uncover the techniques that make them so dang delicious. From the southern staples of my old stomping grounds to the foodie souvenirs I’ve picked up during my travels, I’m cataloging as much goodness as I can get my hands on.

Intended for home chefs, budding foodies, and aspiring savorists, this unfussy and failproof recipe box is sure to keep your salty tooth well fed. Whatever hugs your soul and takes you home, you can find it here.

When I’m not cooking or shooting, you can find me relaxing on somebody’s patio, hiking rugged desert trails, or traveling with family and friends. Special thanks to my hubby (Boomer) and kiddo (Levi) who are the official Salty Tooth taste testers, and to our dog Ziggy for being the most adorable cuddle specialist/floor cleaner ever.

Surprise! We’ve also got another lil taste tester on her way, due next March! If you couldn’t tell, Miss Ruthie is already dictating many of the latest recipe posts. We are in for a wild ride!
