I’m a cookbook author, writer, and lover of animals, vegetables, and a good story. I create recipes using simple, nutrient-dense ingredients, staying as close to the earth as possible. Most of my recipes are grain free, gluten free, many are dairy free, and I prefer ingredients that are not processed, such as honey, maple syrup, ground nuts, seeds, and greens.
I started this website in November 2008 as a way to keep track of and share recipes that might help my older son. He was diagnosed with Crohn’s, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) when he was about 11 years old. Like many with IBD, I suspect he had it several years earlier and it took a while to get a correct diagnosis.
We’ve had our share of struggles and triumphs along the way, but we eat well, laugh, and play as much as possible! I write recipes with the hope that both my boys, myself, and the many people who use my recipes find nourishment, comfort, and good health.
This website is a companion to my cookbooks, and some of the recipes in my cookbooks are also published here.
Wishing you peace, love, and the best of health,
