A Moment of Respect… In response to the racial tension taking place across our country, I have decided to pause content. I care deeply about matters of injustice, and of course, am against violence to any human regardless of race, religion, sexuality, etc. To be completely honest, I wish I knew the right response to convey here on these pages. Therefore, I have decided to step back and take a moment to reflect. My mother’s most impressionable message has always been to treat others the way you would like to be treated. I hope that we all can take the time today to think on this timeless Golden Rule.

I posted this on Instagram and thought it should be added here as well…

I am deeply saddened by the matters of injustice and racism spreading throughout our world, and I have decided to pause content for the moment. I wish I knew the right response to convey here on these pages, but what I know is that this is a time for change. I know I will never understand the pain of being judged by the color of my skin, but I will continue to do my best and educate myself. Breaking it down to the basics, I think we must all remember the Golden rule of treating others the way you would like to be treated.

Campaign Zero is a resource I’ve donated to and found helpful during this time. Their vision has resonated with me and they are working on providing solutions.

  1. Thank you for your response. There is no “right” thing to say; no one knows what that is. But to take a moment to step back and show respect is important.

  2. Weak. Your recipes bring joy and you should be strong in dealing with this. Sad to see you’ve caved into making a “statement” by giving up. Cooking brings people together, to talk. And talking can breach many problems. Very disappointed on your cookie cutter response.

    1. Hi Sara. I think that every person is different in how they deal with things like this. This was not intended to be a cookie cutter response, but one that is of a great cause. I am continuing to educate myself on the situation and I hope everyone is doing the same. For now, lets treat each other with love. ❤️ xTieghan

  3. i also don’t know what to do to effect real change but i think that it’s awesome that you are marking the enormity of the problem and sharing campaign zero information. your voice is powerful and i’m thankful that you’re using it to recognize racial injustice – thank you!!

    1. Thank you Meghan. Each of us are more powerful and influential than we think. Just being better and learning day by day is helping tremendously. xTieghan

  4. Tieghan,
    Thank you. This issue is deeply personal to me and I am heartbroken. I don’t know what the answer is, but this helps. ❤

  5. Thank you to Lea. I am learning and listening and truly appreciate your taking time educate in your vital post.. Swede, no need to defend your great city…systemic racism is universal and global, We have to wake up, we have to change. Peace and comfort to George Floyd’s family.

  6. We all handle these situations very different. That’s what the human race is… different and I hope we can start celebrating our differences instead of letting it divide us. Thank you for all you do. There will be brighter times on the horizon.

  7. Thank you, Tieghan. It is so nice to know that I can admire your cooking talent and your personal values.

  8. Teighan, I respect your decision. It is always a good idea for each one of us to pause and reflect on how we can make things better, be better.

  9. Thank you for posting about Campaign Zero. I first saw it on your post on Instagram; I was previously unaware. Thank you also for taking a pause. I understand you prefer to keep your blog and postings about your chosen field, but these are unprecedented times. #Black Lives Matter.

  10. Tieghan, in your case, you bring joy and love of food for our families into our homes. Here we can escape the nonsensical acts of violence. Our son, in LA, was trying to escape the angry mob after he was let off work later than expected. They were coming from Long Beach toward the cars driving out of LA. They began climbing on top of cars, dragging people out of cars and beating them up. Our son was blessed to escape out of traffic. Keep doing what you do to remind us all of beauty in family meals.

    1. Thank you Kimberley. I am really sorry to hear that and I am so glad he is okay. ❤️ xTieghan
