I am a firm believer that food is fuel. When our daughter, Parker, was diagnosed in utero with a congenital heart defect, we had no idea how much nutrition would ultimately play a role in her journey and recovery over the past five years. I look forward to sharing her story with you all one day soon; but, my point in regards to my introduction to Recipes is, receiving news Parker would be sick, and later watching her fight for her life and struggle to eat, forever changed my philosophy on food and nutrition. I quickly and passionately became someone that is meticulous about everything I put into my body, and into the bodies of my family. I don’t diet, at all. I do, however, carefully select productive foods, with purpose. As a strategist in the hospitality industry turned restaurant blogger, I have a true passion for dining out and for the artistry of recipe creation. This is where these two worlds collide.
Becoming a mother and transitioning to the majority of our meals being enjoyed at home has been a whole ‘nother ballgame. To date, lovehas always been the core ingredient in my cooking. Love? Yes, love, because who won’t eat your cooking if it’s made with love, right? Wrong. And truth be told, it has taken a whole lot of love and a whole lot of misses in the kitchen to find my way. And lets just say, I’m still navigating.
