Hey! Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope that you’re here because you love fresh, local, seasonal food cooked from scratch. Because that’s what I do and I want to share it with you.

I have a passion for cooking and photography and love where I live, here in the Okanagan valley in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. It’s a place where I can walk down the block and pick a pail of fresh cherries, apricots, peaches or apples, depending on the season.
