Howdy folks. Member of the female race…29 years of existence can now be celebrated with a food blog! Yehaa! My food mentors go way back, as I have been cooking from the age of 4. I remember watching Julia Child when I was very little. At around the age of 10, I discovered James Barber and “The Urban Peasant”. I loved his relaxed style of cooking: you didn’t need fancy cookware or utensils. If you had a spoon nearby to flip a piece of chicken with, you freakin’ used it. But you enjoyed it, you savoured the act of cooking as much as the act of enjoying your feast itself. Growing up in a Polish household, I watched my Mother create amazing food, using lots of love, bacon fat, and a little Polish zing. Don’t forget the cabbage.
Eating primal/paleo came to me in late 2009 with the discovery of Mark’s Daily Apple. In fact, it wasn’t long after I lost my Mother to cancer. Both my parents passed before either one of them reached the age of 70. Dad, to heart disease at the age of 67, Mom to an unknown cancerous beast at 63. My quest for health, and living a balanced lifestyle is inspired by this loss. I vowed to never have the kind of health problems they did. This site is dedicated to them
But is there more to life than food? I guess! I’m a huge fan of music, art, design, travelling, spirituality/mysticism, my Harley Davidson, my cats, my amazing wife, and life itself. As much as this is a food blog, it’ll probably have a good healthy smattering of the aforementioned.
I love meeting new people, and would love to hear from you. Fire away!
