Hi! Welcome to The Feminist Kitchen.

I’m Addie Broyles, and I’ve been writing a blog called The Feminist Kitchen for more than a decade. I wrote about love and loss, old quilts, travel and birthday cake.

This year, this platform for sharing stories about parenthood, grief, ancestry, self healing and creativity transforms into a paid weekly newsletter.

By supporting TFK with a subscription, you’ll get fresh content each week through the newsletter. I’ll be penning new essays and stories and digging in the archive for golden gems worth revisiting. Maybe you read this piece about Diana Nyad’s incredible swim in 2013 or my love letter to Tami Taylor, the feminist heroine of “Friday Night Lights,” and want to read how my thoughts on Laura Ingalls Wilder have changed.

For fun and for free

Writing TFK is something I’ve loved so much that I’ve done for free, but I knew I couldn’t dedicate more time to it without using a paid model. At $10 a month, I hope you’ll consider supporting me so I can continue to bring this kind of content into the world.

I am also committing to donating 10% of my Substack income to a BIPOC-led non-profit, starting with DAWA Fund, an Austin-based nonprofit that is a safety net for people of color who are experiencing short term life crisis.

Join the crew

This is your chance to be part of The Feminist Kitchen community! Maybe we’ll revive that book club we started way back when. Or host a virtual movie series. I want to hear your stories about the intersection of history, family and personal discovery. Use #thefeministkitchen on Instagram to connect with other modern-day storytellers and meaning-makers.
