About Us

Ashton and Keaton began blogging together in 2016 as a passion project. Both are lovers of food, family gatherings, and entrepreneurial pursuits, which made starting a food blog together a no-brainer. 

Ashton is the oldest sibling of six kids, with Keaton coming in close behind as the third child. They both live in the Raleigh, North Carolina area (as do their parents and sibling #2) and enjoy getting together often to eat, play card games, and let the kids run wild.


Ashton has been a part of the food blogging world since 2010, after the birth of her first child. Her first blog, and full-time job, is Something Swanky Dessert Recipes. Her passion lies in the creative aspects of food blogging-- styling, photography, editing, and even some graphic design. And, of course, she loves dessert (especially chocolate chip cookies)!

She and Chris have been married for 14 years, and together they are raising three crazy hooligans (a girl and two boys). They had a baby in September of 2019 and normal sleep has not yet resumed at their house.

Her favorite recipes on Keat's Eats are:


Football is his first love and number one passion. Food comes in at a close second. As Keaton says, they really go hand in hand, don't they? Any serious football guy also appreciates really good food! He's spent the last several years both playing for and coaching college football teams, and it's truly become a way of life for him and his family.

We joke about football and food being his true loves, but Keaton is a family guy at heart and always puts them first. He and his wife, Lillian, have two children (a boy and a girl). His son loves hanging out in the kitchen, and you'll see him appear in blog posts from time to time helping Dad cook!

His favorite recipes on Keat's Eats are:
Sweet Corn Spoon Bread
Double Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies
Paula Deen's Best Bacon

Welcome to the family.
