Hello, and welcome to my site!
Spices are my thing. I am infatuated with them. I love how they grow, how they smell, and especially cooking with them.
Spices are healthy, and adding them to your meals not only boosts flavor, but adds nutrition that is vital for your well-being. Spices can boost your immune system, which these days is so important to keep away all the viruses and other illnesses going around.
Cooking has always been a passion of mine.
I am a self-taught cook. I live in New England on the coast just north of Boston, MA. I have lived here all my life and was fortunate to be able to raise my kids here as well. The kids are all grown and have their own careers and families, so it’s just my husband, myself and our adorable Bassett hound, Dixie.
My husband and I love to travel, so trying out new foods where ever we go is top of our list of things to do!
I am the Mom of five boys so I had to learn how to create yummy, healthy, and tasty meals and snacks to keep the kids going. Plus, I had to do it on a budget! I’m an advocate of having the kids help around the house whenever they can.
I collect and read cookbooks from cover to cover. I get my cooking ideas from them and convert them to my own recipes. I hope to give you insight into creating delicious, healthy meals that you can Make It Your Way!
Make Something Ordinary, Extraordinary!
I will share my recipes, tips and a little history about herbs and spices with you so that you will get the inspiration to also experiment with your own recipes and create family friendly meals of your own. You may even develop your own story as you eat your new culinary creation. Spice it YOUR Way! I will show you my techniques for making a recipe you can call your own.
There are many recipes and techniques that I will be teaching you that will be fun and healthy.
When I go to the grocery store, I look for a new fruit or vegetable to try.
I will keep you apprised of all my new finds.
Spicing up your life can be so much fun!
Tired of winter? Host an indoor Korean barbecue in February. Electric indoor grills are safe and easy. Break up that winter cold. What better way to keep in touch with family and friends.? Or you can feature a Japanese Hot Pot meal, all you need is a hot plate, a pot and friends. Everyone can help with the preparation.
When spring comes, why not try lightening up your meals with fresh vege’s and fruits. You can make meals fun with a spiralizer. Make a salad exciting, not just your ho-hum tossed salad! I will be giving you all the tips and recipes you need for meals like this and more! You won’t believe how easy it is and you’ll wonder why you never thought to do it before!
It’s a great way to get the kids to be involved with their own nutrition, by helping in the kitchen. It will make them want to try new things! They might even come up with ideas for you to try.
Come back often as I will be updating my site regularly with phenomenal recipes and tips, and where to get the ingredients.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
