My vegan chili beat 14 other choices and no one knew it was vegan. Sneaky and yummy!
I love playing with food. It's one of the ways I destress in life! From my days as a kid using my Winnie the Pooh cookbook, to being broke in college but still wanting to eat yummy food, to cleaning out the fridge and just not wanting to waste food... I've learned to make playing with food my friend. I lost my fear of improvising as a cook years ago, and it set me free. I love watching amazing chefs like Julia Child, Ina Garten, Jamie Oliver, Massimo Bottura, Giada, Rachel Ray and Bobby Flay (just to name a few) and use them as inspiration and digital mentors. I love to cook with beautiful stuff I grow or get from CSA's, to great stuff from Trader Joes and when I've been broke, the .99 Store (they get some amazing overstock). Buy the best quality ingredients you can afford at any budget and your food will be fresh and yummy. When I'm not enjoying playing in the kitchen, I write stories, enjoy the beach near where I live, yoga-size and spend time with humans I love, my wonderful hubs, my awesome family and my amazing pals, both human and furry. I am indeed lucky. May you all be happy, healthy, loving and loved, and have everything you need in life. xo Steph
