About me:
I really appreciate uncomplicated recipes that combine well rounded good nutrition and ingredients with excellent flavor. I enjoy making one dish meals so I don't have to worry about side dishes. I have a husband who is not picky and almost always enjoys what I make. Over the last few years I have become more and more interested in growing my own foods. First year it was herbs, then tomatoes and herbs. This year it was herbs, tomatoes, squash, blueberries, 2 native berry bushes, corn, and 5 different types of fruit trees (dwarf, because I don't have much room!)! I am trying to overcome my black thumb - some things die or don't produce, but I still keep trying. I try my best to buy as local as possible, and organic if possible also. I also have changed my lifestyle to an animal-ingredient free one. I have forgone all meat, dairy, eggs, gelatin (boiled connective tissues), etc. I feel WONDERFUL now, and I am eating better than I ever have before.
