It seems like a no brainer, Bartek, my husband, and I are vegetarian, and it only makes sense that Henry, our infant son, would also eat a plant based diet. From food prep to eating out, it less hassle when everyone gravitates to the same food preferences. While Henry may not be making his own […]

After some minor […]
At 33 weeks now, it was about the mid-point during my pregnancy I decided to really hone in my diet. I noticed I was uncomfortable after I ate certain foods and there were heightened adverse effects on my weight gain and overall bodilly functions when I ate others, namely baked sugary foods and dairy products.

Offering cooking classes was always an aspiration of mine. I went through culinary school, unlike many of my peers, never really wanting to own my own restaurant.
