img_7632-1Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Like you have no time to cook or entertain? That you could never eat that (gulp) bread, (double gulp) chocolate, that you have to be a gourmet chef to impress others, that you will never lose those last 10 lbs if you actually enjoy your food?

I get it, I’ve been there! I dealt with fear around food for years, but it was ultimately that fear of calories that led me to learn to cook. Then when I got educated about what real, whole, wonderful food was, I continued cooking so that I had the power to decide what went into my body for all the right reasons and subsequently lost over 20lbs.

The recipes and tips you see here will never be overly complicated, they will be fun, they will encourage you to follow your taste and be creative and they will always be spicy and flavorful just the way you like it!

I’ve been making concoctions in the kitchen since I was a little girl and that freedom to experiment has made me fearless with my food and I want you to learn to feel the same. Burn things until you get it, don’t take yourself too seriously, drink some wine, turn up the music and stay tuned for amazing results!

Along with the recipes I create I will be rating my dining experiences at restaurants and sharing my recommendations based on a bites system. 5 bites is just like 5 stars, the more bites the better on a scale of 1-5. This will take into account the overall experience as well as the food quality and taste.

I will also be sharing my adventures in living a holistic lifestyle including my passion for yoga and exercise and great tips I learn along the way. I hope you enjoy!
