In 1861 my great-great grandfather purchased some land in Washington Territory, my  uncles and cousins are still farming that land today, http://www.nelsonranch.com/.

My mom left the ranch, but instilled in me a love of the land and a desire to grow and eat food that is whole and nutritious, which I am attempting to instill in my own kids now.

In 2012 I decided to go to culinary school to deepen my knowledge of all things food. After a few years in restaurants and large scale catering operations, I’ve learned a thing or two about professional cooking, and life in general.

Life is about continuing to learn, trying new adventures, and finding balance. I’ll make sure and let you know when I achieve that last one, but in the meantime, let’s create some community.

  2. Hello! I found your blog via Instagram somehow (I’m a new CSA member) and I can’t thank you enough for your cooking suggestions and recipes. Thank you for taking away the stress of “what do I do with ‘X’?” I look forward to each week’s updates just as much as I look forward to learning what’s actually in the CSA box!
