Next to rescuing vintage finds while out on picking trips, one of my other favorite things to do is cook. With a husband, a daughter and two sons, I’ve always needed to cook hearty, healthy meals. Make no mistake, I’m no health nut, but, I try to cook smart.

I’ll share some of my favorite recipes as well as some from friends and family along the way so that maybe you’ll be inspired to tackle your kitchen with a new perspective.
