Food has always been my passion, making people happy my greatest pleasure and the health of my family what I value most. I truly believe that teaching our kids at a young age about good food will instill in them an appreciation for quality and a greater awareness of their environment as well as the gift of enjoying simple pleasures.
Wherever possible I choose fresh, seasonal and sustainable foods prepared as simply as possible to bring out the very best flavors. Occasionally , I love the challenge of a more complex dish which I hope will inspire you to look beyond your ability and cook with more love and less fear. The results will speak for themselves, I guarantee you, and making a meal will become less of a chore and more of a beautiful ritual.
The layout of this is more website than traditional blog. I don’t want to bore you with too many details of my life, although I will tell you until this idea was born, I had not spent much time behind a camera – my husband being the designated family photographer. He graciously ignored my pleas to take the photographs for this blog and instead handed me his camera and said” Push this button… ” So while I can attest to years of experience in the kitchen, photography is an entirely new journey for me. I hope you will join me in cooking , eating , laughing and learning and come away with even a little of the joy that my kitchen brings me.
