I have spent many "moons" in the kitchen cooking! I recall sitting on the counter as a young child helping my great grandmother bake her apple pie from the apples she picked off the tree! The designer in me loves to create and find harmony combining foods together to make your taste buds go WILD! Food really does bring people together and creates lasting memories.
In my recipes I like create foods from what I call a S-O-U-L diet. Seasonal, Organic, Unprocessed & Local. I like to focus on naturally grown whole foods that come from mother earth. When meats are used they are from local sustainable farmers that don't use antibiotics, hormones, and are able to feed their animals from food sources that are natural to them.
