Hey, I’m Molly!

I’m so happy you’re here! I’m a faith-driven wife living in the rolling hills outside Nashville, Tennessee. I’m sharing the joys of keeping a home with intention and living a life inspired by the South. 

I wholeheartedly believe an imperfect home can bring comfort, love, safety, and peace if it’s full of wholesome food from scratch, gut-healthy baked goods, a holistic environment, and a whole lot of Jesus.

My blog, Plum Branch Home, is a place where you’ll get inspired to cook from scratch, bake with sourdough, and keep a holistic home.

My YouTube channel is the video version of the blog where you’ll find tutorials to walk you through recipes and projects.

My podcast show, Making It a Home, is a place where I dive deep into all things that make a space feel like home.

Through all of this content, I hope to inspire you to make your home a priority, whether you rent or own, live in the city or on acreage, or are just getting started.

P.S. Each recipe here on PBH is developed in our kitchen by me and tested twice to ensure success. We like to joke that this process has named my husband, Tyler, the official taste tester of Plum Branch Home!

what I believe


Making food from scratch is a form of love to yourself and anyone who enjoys your cooking


A sourdough starter is not only a way to save money and better your health. It’s bringing tradition back to the modern day


When we prioritize home, we’re creating peace, safety, love, and comfort for ourselves and others
