I started blogging in 2011, when my college friends kept asking me for my recipes. These days, I’m freelancing in food writing and recipe development, and living on the Peninsula with my husband and our beagle. I cook for health as well as for flavor, so you’ll find dishes here that are paleo, vegan, and everything in between. I’m not a vegetarian but I do love vegetables, and my pantry consists of mostly whole foods. My palette of ingredients includes fruits and vegetables, sustainably raised animal proteins, nuts and seeds, grains, legumes and natural sweeteners in moderation, as well as the occasional serving of dairy. Nothing is verboten, but things tend to skew healthy around here. What can I say? I’ve lived in Northern California all my life. Kale juice runs in my veins.
