Meet Our Kitchen Council


I’m excited to introduce you to some fresh new faces! Please meet and give a warm welcome to Coryanne Ettiene, Holley Grainger and Sally Kuzemchak, our first official “Kitchen Council!”

We couldn’t be more excited to partner with these inspiring experts whom many will recognize from their popular blogs and social media sites. Throughout the year, this fruit-loving team will join myself, Tate, and Lorie to share their ideas, tips, recipes and insights on The Stem as we explore the world of all-things apples, cherries, pears and more!

Without further ado, here they are!

Coryanne Ettiene

Kitchen Living with Coryanne

Not always an expert, Coryanne reluctantly found herself in the kitchen at the age of 30 with a talent for burning rice and serving undercooked sausages after a decade of spending her days climbing the corporate ladder and her nights moving from one London hot spot to the next. Forever curious and with a growing family to feed, Coryanne cut her teeth one cooking disaster at a time, until a tiny trickle of kitchen victories grew into a culinary passion and a love of entertaining at home. Today Coryanne is a food and lifestyle expert featured on AOL, Huffington Post, Kitchen Daily, More Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens and Traditional Home to name a few. She lives in Dallas with her husband, their three children, a rather spoiled rescue pup, an old but graceful cat and two feisty chickens. You can follow Coryanne here or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.
