Welcome to my new website! It's a look into my life and life's work. It's about time I began contributing to the blog world again via recipes and helpful ways to live an artful life. I love to take a simple approach to New American cuisine. As for artful living and helpful hints on living your best life, stay tuned. You will find posts on style from all aspects and -- let's not kid ourselves -- there may be crafts. The biggest blog topics will always be recipes from my forthcoming book as well as happy accidents around my kitchen. This is a place for you to draw inspiration to live your own kind of Rustic Joy-filled Life.
