For me, cooking is an extension of love.– Hedda Sterne
Food is soothing to the soul. Cooking for others is one of my most favorite things to do. I’m not great at creating recipes, but I’m good at following a recipe then tweaking it to make it my own. We have recently adopted a whole foods plant-based way of eating. My husband and I were vegetarian for many years then switched back to a conventional method of eating until more and more research points to a plant-based diet as being one of the healthiest forms of eating. You have to choose what is right for you and your family. For us right now, this is how we are going to eat.
My favorite thing to make right now is something called cheese, not cheese. It is a flavorful blend of potatoes and carrots (yep, I said potatoes and carrots!) with a few cashews all blended up in the old Vitamix. We eat that stuff on EVERYTHING. Mac & cheese, burritos, baked potatoes, nachos, and my favorite, chili cheese fries. Holy cow. So freakin’ good. What’s on your menu?
