My passion is cooking (and my family) so you often find me in my kitchen exploring recipes and trying all kinds of new flavors. This inspired me to start this shop to share my home creations with as many people as I can. I became a stay at home mom a few years ago and while that is the best and most fulfilling job I have ever held, I need an outlet to express my food creativity. I worked in the restaurant industry for the last sixteen years, holding just about every job title that falls in that category, and I missed the expression of passion for food and flavor. Before I left my post in the industry to hold my new post, my family was always part of my adventure of trying new things from the market and my never ending tweaking of recipes. Poor hubs, never saw it coming when he met me. Such a steak, potatoes, pizza night out guy. Now he’s been transformed into a bit of a closet foodie;)
All of this has culminated into a growing desire to keep building on all of the flavors I have created. Everyday I try to make something new. Once I try it and tweak it for a while I introduce it to the shop. This is a bit harder in the winter as my access to fresh organic products dwindles with the lack of local farmers markets so my focus turns to rubs and spice blends for a little. I think of stews and roasts and good ol’ comfort foods. But never fear… I already have started a list of ideas for the spring and summer.
