I am sooo excited to be starting this blog, I am not even sure where to start. I have ALWAYS loved to cook and I try to do it daily. I really love to make everything completely from scratch and with fresh, seasonal and whole ingredients. I recently completed a 30 day cleanse, changed my entire lifestyle and lost 20lbs. This has even further changed the way I look at food, cooking and eating and I am more excited than ever about them all. I happen to be gluten intolerant and don’t consume any gluten, but please do not let that scare you off. I avoid overly complicated recipes created just to make something gluten-free and I definitely shy away from anything that tastes like “special food” for someone with an “allergy”. I use my hubby as the gauge on this and if he can really tell that something is “gluten-free” than I don’t make it again. For the most part he eats a completely gluten-free diet at home due to me being the cook, and he has never complained once.
I decided to start this blog to not only share what I am cooking and eating, but to act as a digital cookbook and catalog for myself and hubby (who constantly begs for me to make him a menu to choose from). I love to share what I make with the people I love the most and nothing makes me happier than making people smile and say “mmmmmm”.
This blog is most definitely a work in progress. Given that I am a designer / illustrator / print maker by day, I will constantly be tweaking with the way this blog looks, my photography, etc, so please bare with me while I work out all the kinks.
