Our Approach

My Approach

is love on a plate.  More than just FOOD and RECIPES, for me, its about joy, comfort, creativity, family, traditions and love.

I want to my site to be like my kitchen:  welcoming, loving and full of great food!  Please join me in my journey, peruse, explore and let me know what you think.  I am ready to learn where I can, teach where I am able, and do everything I do with love - Lara.

Our Story

My Story

My Grandmother showed her love for me and my family through the food she made.  We were always greeted at her house with an open door, a warm hug,  and the aroma of something delicious wafting from her kitchen.

From the time I was very young, maybe five or six, I cooked with her, at nine I got my first subscription to Gourmet magazine,  we made party food, lunch for the two of us, and of course family dinners.

She was passionate about exploring food, and her love of family, and I've carried on her legacy.

Self, and eventually professionally taught (thank you George Brown) I am always interested in expanding and sharing all things food!
