Before having my three wonderful children I traveled the world and had adventures. During this season of my life, my interests are closer to home. My family gets a large portion of our food delivered from our local farm. Since we get so many interesting and exciting fruits and vegetables from the farm each week I am always trying new recipes and techniques.
My recipes generally focus on using fresh, local, whole foods. Most of my recipes are fairly healthy, but I also like to experiment with desserts from scratch too. I am also interested in crafting not just recipes, but meals, so I like to include serving suggestions with my recipes. I also often plan meals for family with mixed dietary restrictions and preferences, so I like to document how to make meals that work well for everyone.
My friends tease me about how healthy my children eat (most of the time). I think that is in part because I focus on making fresh whole ingredients delicious. Not that every recipe I try is a winner for every kid, but I think it is important to try (and least most of the time).
I am also passionate about making adventures for me and my family close to home. We have done everything from digging for dinosaur bones to going sailing, and I look forward to doing more.
I hope you enjoy exploring with me.
