Hello, and welcome!

I’m a novelist with a background in molecular biology and nutritional science. I’ve also spent the past few years getting involved in the food justice community (you can read more about me here). Based on this background, I’ll be bringing you blog posts in three main categories:


All the recipes on this blog are plant-based. I’ve been vegan for nearly two decades, so it’s pretty much the only way I know how to cook!

In addition, the recipes I share will be easy to make and budget friendly. We are all at different stages in our culinary journeys, and I want this to be a place for you to find inspiration to experiment… and maybe make a few messes. Perfection isn’t what I’m striving for. Just good food, prepared with love.

Food Justice

I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned through my volunteer work with food-related nonprofits and while researching my novels, all of which involve various aspects of the food system.

My Stories

From time to time, I’ll pop in to bring you stories about my own life as a writer, publisher, mother, gardener, etc. This category will also contain the “story behind the story” of the novels that I’ve been writing.

Your Thoughts

So, that’s what you can expect from this blog. Anything else you want to see? Let me know in the comments!
