Just a girl in her kitchen, tossing together a heaping cup of zeal, a drizzle of intuition, a pinch of reckless abandon, and a full measure of lessons learned the hard way...hoping to wind up with something truly divine. I am passionate about practical cooking, eating, and nutrition. I believe in buying the right ingredients, eating your vegetables, and taking the time to do things right. Every cook should fully embrace the notion that the journey is equally important as the destination. A life well fed is a life well lived.
