Make + Haus

Heather Jennings of Poppy Haus

Make+Haus is a blog dedicated to food, play, and design. I'm a passionate home cook, with a focus on seasonal ingredients. Because I'm the mother of 2 young boys, I feature plenty of family friendly recipes with the occasional sweet treat and cocktail recipe for the grown ups! I also like to try my hand at interior design, DIY projects and I've been know to give the occasional art history lesson. Visit Make+Haus for more living at home inspiration!
