About Me / This Blog

Thank you for visiting my blog :) My name is Cassie and I am in my mid-20s, living in the midwest United States. I am studying Geology at the University of Kansas with the goal of being a high school science teacher 'when I grow up.' I am engaged to the man of my dreams and we spend pretty much every moment we can together. My favorite hobby is reading and learning (I am a nerd).

I am a Kitchen Alchemist. Creating food is my art. In this blog I will feature my own recipes that I cook everyday in my own home. I like to focus on healthy meals cooked with natural, whole foods and almost all of my ingredients are organic. I hope some of these recipes inspire you to explore your creative food potential!

I learned to cook at the prestigious School of Mom, located in the kitchen of my childhood home. Mom taught me techniques and tricks that she learned from her mother and so on. I have had a taste for variety and delicious foods cooked with nourishing ingredients since childhood. Within the past couple of years, I have become even more concerned with health, nutrition, and how the food that I am eating effects my community and the environment. I now buy as much as I possibly could directly from farmers at the local farmer's market and I choose organic over conventional almost every time.

Since I have adopted a whole foods based, organic, plant-centric diet, I have felt much better in general. My brain functions better, my body feels good and energetic, my mood has improved and I hardly ever get sick. I try not to be preachy, but I cannot ignore the amazing, positive effects that my diet has had on me!

I hope that you will make some of my recipes and will enjoy them as much as I do. Cheers!
