My low point in food happened about three years ago while still at college in Indiana. I always liked eating, but I never put too much thought into what my food was actually made of or where it came from. One night as I was unwrapping some frozen Salisbury steaks from Kroger I noticed they had “grill” marks on them. Not even real grill marks. “This is bad. Really bad,” I thought.

Ever since then I started learning to cook for myself. My diet wasn’t vastly improved, but it was better. I read Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food, and that really got me started on questioning what I eat and where it comes from.

I now truly believe in eating real food. I also believe food should be fun. So many family gatherings, holidays or life events are either based around food or food plays an integral part, so why not have a bit of fun with it?

Ever since I stopped eating processed junk and started focusing on real, healthy food I’ve felt so much better and have had so much more fun in the kitchen. That’s why I started this blog – to share some of the recipes I’ve come up with or recipes I’ve found that deserve to be passed on. Click here for a longer post about my philosophy on food.

I now live in London, England and am enjoying all the new food experiences Europe has to offer!

  1. the name of your blog is so right! it really looks like lots of fun and great food. thanks for checking out my blog… i was actually thinking today about creating a new all-food blog and to co-write it with some of my new friends… i recently moved to china, so every day is an adventure.
    and if you want to see more of my photography there’s more to see, and i’ll be more than happy to share.
    thanks for writing =)

  2. Your blog is great! I also believe in whole fresh foods, well prepared, (and if I can cook them on a fire while camping without power, even better) 🙂

    I’ll be back to read some more – I love London, and you’re so fortunate to live there!! Your photos are amazing!!!

  3. You have a great blog with lovely photos. I really love your new culinary philosophy and I totally agree with you – freshly cooked meals are the only way. I started eating great when I met my wife as we both love to cook for each other. We also grow a lot of our own food and get a buzz from using our own homegrown ingredients. Do you grow any food to use in your meals?

    • I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to grow food to cook in my meals. Whenever I have food straight out of the garden I am just amazed by how much different it tastes to anything you get out of a grocery store. There are “fresh” ingredients from the store, but then there are FRESH, from the garden. Totally different. Someday I hope to, but for now I have to stick to a little basil plant on my window sill. And thanks for the compliment 🙂
