No Eggs or Ham is comprised of Kimberly, age 21, and Ryan, age 19. We met in August of 2014 and started dating November of the same year. During that time, we’ve lived in Tampa, FL, Los Angeles, CA, Eugene, OR, and have traveled seven countries together.
Living paycheck to paycheck in LA taught us something real quick: the only way we’re going to make it out of here with some meat on our bones is if we cook for ourselves. While I, Ryan, have loved cooking since middle school – starting with my obsession of Alton Brown’s cooking show, Good Eats – our collective move to LA instilled a passion, desire, and love for cooking in both Kim and myself. Quickly, food rose to our #1 shared art of choice.
As soon as we settled down after traveling, we combined Kim’s technology wit with my writing abilities and assembled a website where we could share our love for cooking with friends, strangers, and anyone willing to learn how tasty a healthy lifestyle can be.
Since the start of No Eggs or Ham in January of 2017, we’ve shared over 65 recipes, with many, many more to come. New recipes can be expected two times weekly.
Ryan is the thought tank of No Eggs or Ham; he creates ideas, tests recipes, and writes each post. When he’s not holding a whisk in one hand and a spatula in the other, he’s probably reading a book or hitting drums in his band Gold Souls. Connect with Ryan on Instagram @ryantempfer!
Kim is the architect of No Eggs or Ham; she engineers the website layout, designs sets, and photographs & edits most of the content. Aside from capturing breathtaking photos, Kim can be found roaming the aisles of a grocery store or ordering soy lattes at your local coffee shop. Connect with Kim on Instagram @kimberlyhtran!
