Out of Dinner Ideas? Try These Beautiful Bowls

“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” ~ Julia Child Creating simple & beautiful meals is my passion.

The Evolving Kale & Chocolate Manifesto

Lately, my entries here on K&C have been a bit more personal. I must admit, I was shy at first. How can I expose my vulnerabilities? Why do they care about the lessons my dog has taught me about life?  Or will it resonate with my readers that I have a hard time not being […]
