Hi, I’m Liz and this is my food blog where I share my love of healthy foods and whole ingredients. You will find mostly vegetarian dishes, plenty of sweets, and lots of love from this little kitchen in Durham, North Carolina!


    • Thanks so much Vanessa! So glad you liked it 🙂 Risotto is one of my favorite things to make during the holidays— maybe it’s that creaminess that gives it such a comforting feel!

    • Awww thanks so much! Your homemade almond joys look so delicious— I had to share with anyone I could 🙂

    • Happy Easter to you too, Deryn! Your quinoa bowl looks so tasty 🙂
