**FYI: This blog is no longer being updated and I am only able to respond to comments and emails intermittently. I have decided to keep the site up for the time being so that readers may still access old recipes. Thank you for understanding.**
Hi. I’m Christie, a Texan turned Seattleite living just outside the Emerald City. This is my food blog.
What began as a simple idea in 2010 has since evolved into an online space that continues to challenge and shape me. Here, you’ll find an eclectic mix of tasty recipes made from (mostly) whole foods as well as glimpses into my life as a wife, mother, and child of God. I’m no purist when it comes to food choices and enjoy the occasional splurge, but since my body is healthier and stronger when my diet is rich in fresh produce and low in sugar, that’s usually how I roll. I love visiting farms and learning about food at the source, and I’m thankful that living in the Pacific Northwest affords me many opportunities to do so.
Most days you’ll find me posting recipes that are simple to prepare and bursting with flavor (like my Citrus Kale Salad with Cranberries and Toasted Almonds), though sometimes I’ll bust out the big guns and do things that require a little more technical precision (Homemade Caramel Sauce, anyone?). Regardless of the recipe type, I do my best to provide clear instruction and give you a heads up to speed bumps you might encounter along the way. Most posts end with a Tips and Tidbits section where you’ll find this type of information as well as ideas for how the recipe can be varied.
Lastly, I hope you’ll take a moment to read through my Help End Hunger page. Most of us are blessed beyond measure with the amount of food that passes through our hands, but there are a lot of folks at home and abroad who are really struggling. Please take a moment to learn more and consider how you can be an agent for change.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you’re here.
