People often ask me what my cooking 'style' is and I always struggle to explain it because it is so broad. The best summary is that I will cook anything as long as it is delicious, healthy and wholesome. That means free of chemicals, preservatives, additives, and byproducts. It also means everything in moderation, just because coconut oil is healthy does not mean we should add it to everything! Just because honey is a sugar does not mean we can not have it once in a while! You will not find any dry, bland, cardboard reminiscent food here, healthy can still be crave worthy! There is everything from gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, organic, local, and season recipes here, I hope you find something tempting!
