There’s one thing you should know before I begin this food blog and it’s this— whenever possible I try to use locally produced organic ingredients. Yep, I’m one of those people who think it’s important to eat organic both for the environment and my own health. How dare she! Right?
Well, it all started a few years ago, when I innocently embarked on a photo story about a local organic farmer— oh yeah, you should probably also know I am a photojournalist by trade— his name was Bill Pennell and there are very few people who can spend time with Bill and not be convinced to go organic. It wasn’t long before I began to question my Manwich and Hamburger Helper cooking style and started opting to cook real food.
What is the difference between “real” food and food, Sara? I’m glad you asked— or I’m glad I can pretend that you asked. Real food is made from scratch. Real food requires you to be creative. Real food is made from fresh (preferably organic) ingredients. Real food means pretty much avoiding anything that comes from a box. So, if you too are ready to start eating real food, you’ve come to the right place.
