The lines between blogging/social media and business are blurred. For some in the District, like Katelyn Sornik of Kate Bakes and Tamon George of Creative Theory, social media or blogging was an entry-point to starting their own ventures.

With this in mind, I reached out to Flours in Your Hair, a food and recipe blog started by two friends and former roommates, Becca Rea-Holloway and Anna Twum. I first came across the duo on Instagram and appreciated their refreshingly understyled, accessible food photos. The food looked delicious while still being attainable, hinting at meals that would actually look like the photos if I made them at home.

I recently baked granola and chatted with cofounder Rea-Holloway in her Adams Morgan home. (Twum recently moved away to attend graduate school, but the pair remains dedicated to the blog.) Rea-Holloway explained that “messy cooking” is all about accessibility. “We want our recipes to be things you can actually cook!” she said. “We encourage people to adapt and make substitutions to recipes based on what they have on hand.”

Here are a few shots from the day.

And the end result, in a yogurt parfait the next morning.
