I may be in the minority here, but I'll be glad when the fixation on bacon-wrapped EVERYTHING begins to wane [woven bacon taco shells that use 1.5 lbs of bacon for two shells... bacon-wrapped sushi... bacon-wrapped mac 'n cheese... bacon-wrapped pickles... you get the picture]. I'm not holding my breath though. Instead, I've created some alternatives that I love... I'm betting you will too!

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!
