This is me, a food loving, health craving, veggie fiend, who enjoys the culture of enjoying a meal with friends and family. Whole, clean cooking that is about the food at hand.
I get so excited when food is the purest form of itself. An apple from a farmer’s market at the end of October tastes exactly like an apple. I’ve worked at a grocery store and two farms in my life, and can attest to the fact that eating seasonally will change your belly. My intention is to make food taste good by using healthy ingredients: whole grains, unsaturated fats, natural sugar alternatives and the like. Not promising a lot of ‘meat and potatoes’ on this here blog, but a bit of indulgence will certainly wiggle in amongst the vegetables. What I can promise is that here, you will find recipes that ALWAYS use local ingredients, and organic when found affordable. I don’t really measure, so the recipes are usually educated guesses that should work for you. Alter my suggestions based on your own tastes- a little more of this, a little less of that. This is art, not science…if you ask me.
My love, Hugh, happens to be quite the talented photographer. A completely self-taught image making mastermind. My blog, Sprouted Kitchen, is our adventure together; for him to take photos, me to learn more about cooking, and enjoy food in good company. We look forward to feedback and comments, and hope to bring readers to a table with people they love.

As we round from fall towards winter, root vegetables are at their peak. I don't know that they are as admired as the sweet corn, tomatoes and zucchinis that we get in summer, but they are rich and hearty and just as good for you. You have likely had...
