My recipes come from everywhere! I try to mix vegetarian, vegan, and sugar-free dishes in with the rich, meaty, midwestern-style dishes I grew up with. Some of these recipes are written by members of my family, many come from cookbooks I love, others come from the interwebs. All are tried, true, and delicious.
A quick note about these recipes: I claim no ownership of them! I learn constantly, from so many different sources (as I think all cooks must), that it’s hard to keep an accurate bibliography. When I can, I will cite my source, but if you stumble across your recipe on here and there’s no credit given, please understand I’m not trying to steal anyone’s work! Learning is a beautiful thing and I know there’s much learning ahead for me, as well. I hope this can be a resource for you on your own journey through the kitchen. Happy Cooking!
