Here's my food philosophy: whole foods. Plant-based. From scratch. I like to cook from my garden as much as possible, and as a vegetarian (who eats fish on occasion), I don't post about meat-based cooking, although you can find some in the archives. And did I mention that I am passionate about taste? I will not eat food that is "healthy" but tastes like straw. You won't find any of that here.
In fact, when I first switched to a whole foods plant-based lifestyle, I found myself asking (as a previous Julia Child devotee), "What is left to eat? Beans? Anything else? How can I make it taste good without butter?" This blog is the answer to that question--the food you'll find here is a celebration of the tastebuds, focused on best-quality ingredients in their natural form, lovingly and carefully prepared.
Fair warning: I am passionate about food. I will quite happily spend most of the day cooking. Many of my recipes begin several hours in advance (baking breads, roasting vegetables, etc.)--but since I do have four small children, I also select recipes that don't require incredible amounts of hands-on crisis mode time!
Happy cooking! Don't hesitate to drop me a line if you've got questions or if you loved a recipe (in fact, please do!)
