Hi There, I'm Marley—Welcome To My Menu!
I live in Southern Coastal Georgia with my husband Rob, our baby boy Charlie, and our two dogs Zazu and Lolo. And together, we eat… A LOT!
Growing up, homecooked was all I knew. With a long lineage of caterers and restaurateurs on both sides of my family, I’ve always been taught that cooking is more than just about food.
It’s about passing recipes down from generation to generation, spending time with your loved ones in the kitchen, and exploring new flavors and techniques to learn about different cultures together.
Marley’s Menu was born out of my enthusiasm for home cooking and a desire to share my love for food with others.
Coupled with my knowledge about and passion for the environment, I’ve created a positive platform to share my secrets about how to be sustainability-focused in the kitchen, without giving up your modern-day palate.
I thoroughly relish every step of the cooking process—from sourcing the ingredients, creating beautiful flavors with them, and enjoying the final product as a family.
At Marley’s Menu, you can expect to find recipes that everyone can enjoy and to learn little green tips along the way to live an attainable sustainable life.
All of our recipes will have adaptations for different diets when possible, and every substitute has been tested and approved.
Eating a pescatarian diet is healthy, flexible, and downright delicious! And while it can certainly improve your health and well-being, it can also improve the health and well-being of our planet.
The overconsumption of meat leads to overconsumption of land and water, overuse of fossil fuels, and overproduction of animal methane—a large contributor to greenhouse gas emission.

My Food Philosophy
My mom always said, “the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach”, and I wholeheartedly believe that sharing food traditions, delicious flavors, and pouring love into cooking is absolutely a love language.
Home cooking, to me, is about expressing yourself freely in the kitchen, allowing the ingredients to shine by embracing their natural flavors, and enjoying every step of the process.
Though we can’t be perfect all the time, armed with the right knowledge, we all have the power to make a difference through our food choices.
Marley’s Menu was created as a passion project to connect with others over a shared love of food and the environment.
So, on top of attainable sustainable recipes, I also love to share personal stories from time to time and am constantly working to bring you more information about sustainability as it pertains to food!
I want nothing more than to be a resource for you! Plus, I would love to hear about your food traditions, favorite kitchen hacks, best dishes, and top sustainability tips.
