Is there ANYTHING better in the summer than smoky charcoal grilled food and an icy cold beer? [This is the part where you vigorously shake your head in agreement!] Extra points if that grilled food:

> has components that can be prepped ahead

> is still EASY if you didn't prep ahead

> can be eaten in many delicious ways

> contains mostly plants

> is so FLAVORFUL and SATISFYING you won't miss meat

> makes you forget that it's 90+ deg...

Don't you just love it when you can combine some of your favorite home-made condiments into one spectacularly DELICIOUS dish that ends up LOOKING as fantastic as it tastes? 

Awesome! Me too...  and now I get to share this one with you!

For those who love to cook, bake, grill, tinker or otherwise experiment in the kitchen, do you recall the dish you prepared that made you feel like a culinary goddess - or at least that you possessed a knack for following a great recipe?

2) Weather fluctuations at the drop of a hat (winter parka, full-length rain slicker, windbreaker and flip-flops within easy reach)

3) and some of the best wild edibles for this gorgeous salad!

This post is not intended to be a wild for...

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!

 Views from my lens.
