Home Cooking, for the sake of your health!

Women cookingAn undercover fashionista. A true lover of fashion, beauty, photography and as of recent cooking for my family. A hopeless shopaholic. Obsessed with traveling the world, expanding my ever growing closet and eating out. I discovered my passion for cooking around the time my (at the time infant) son started showing interest in food. I was determined to provide him with the healthiest and tastiest homemade food possible.

I spent many years convinced that low-fat and sugar-free was the passage to health and well being. I have evolved by educating myself about proper nutrition and how ingredients nourish the body. Knowledge has given me power and motivation to get cooking! Cooking used to greatly intimidate me, and at times it still does. Some of the recipes featured are in no way original and proper credit will be given (as applicable).

I love to cook utilizing various methods and draw my inspiration from a variety of cuisines. My cooking includes various raw, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free as well as traditional recipes. I love to use all natural and seasonal ingredients and cook in the most health-conscious way possible. As a working mom of an active toddler I strive for the most time efficient recipes.
