I love to cook! So what happens when a regular person like me tries to make recipes from television, magazines, and the Internet? Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. I like to take recipes, whether it's something new or an old favorite, and either replicate them or make them my own. Follow along with me and see what I can cook up!
Ever Evolving Food Blog
Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.
All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Palm Tree Treat for Kids
Here is another cute, healthy treat I found on the Internet. It's amazing what kind of art you can make with fruits and veggies. This is something you could have your kids help with that would be fun AND nutritious. My students at school have been loving the creations, and my son has been giving me pointers as I am creating these little masterpieces. Ha ha! FUN!!
What you'll need:
A large dinner plate
1 large carrot sliced thinly
2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
2 small bananas, peeled and sliced
*Tip: Cut the bananas last so they don't turn brown.
