“…Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.”
-This Blog is intended to encourage creativity, inspiring others to create with their hands, give with their hands, and spread good will to all.-
Each recipe and story is from my heart. I leave room for creativity within each recipe. I try and create my recipes using the simplest and wholesome ingredients, and remove any fussy steps to suit busy lifestyles. As a nurse practitioner I share recipes to nurture and encourage healthy eating habits. These recipes are intended to bring health and enjoyment so share the love!
A Note We all need inspiration. We all need ideas, and encouragement to be creative. To work with what we have, where we are right now in our lives. I hope this blog can inspire you to nurture yourselves by finding enjoyment in food and caring for ourselves, our land and our neighbors.
I have always found fulfillment in creating. For a period in my life that was lost. All was dark and I had never felt so alone. By grace I had someone above who never gave up on me. I was saved and during this short time here I hope I can give to you. As a Nurse Practitioner patients from every demographic struggle with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, health problems as a result of poor lifestyle. My prayer is that we as a culture can find a way to grab a hold of this crazy thing called life and create. Use what you have. Give back. Fail, succeed and do it again. Love doing what you do and you will give to others the same desire. Through living a healthy life we can have the ability to help others and teach our children. I hope this blog fuels your desire to create.
