Hi! I’m Teresa Morse, the woman behind Morse Code Kitchen. Welcome to my corner (or, if we’re being honest, tiny fruit fly sized speck) of the internet!

This is me:


This is me when I’m hungry / when I’m cranky that a giant overhanging ancient tree branch is taller than me:


I started this blog to document my culinary adventures and share recipes — but really, it might have just been as an excuse to cook/bake/eat more. I love food. Like, a lot. 

I live in Georgia with these two:


Bryce is my college-sweetheart-turned-dog-coparenter-turned-husband-turned-seminary-student, and Tater is our least regrettable impulse decision (true story). He’s almost 4.

I’m passionate about writing, my aforementioned family of two, and Jesus. My love affair with cooking and baking started with a six-year-old me trying to make a batch of my great-grandmother’s Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies and forgetting the baking soda and salt. When I was about 11 or 12, I got deeply into Rachael Ray, so to answer your question, yes, I cook with olive oil like it’s going out of style. These highly formative experiences have led to a lifelong love of adventuring in the kitchen.

Unsurprisingly, given that’s how I started, I don’t have any formal cooking/baking education or experience. I’ve just always enjoyed it, and I love having cooking and baking be such a big part of my everyday life. Every six months I decide I want to go to pastry or culinary school, and then I look at tuition costs and go back to my kitchen and toss ingredients together without measuring them. Usually it turns out.
