A Food Journal

I am so excited that you have decided to join me in the kitchen to share in preparing nutritious, colorful and delicious meals for you, your family and friends.  This special journal includes some of my favorite recipes, food mantras and most importantly, space for you to share and record your cooking experiences throughout this journal.  Recipes are developed by the cooks in the kitchen, by trial and error, by tweaking and re-tweaking other recipes.  Recipes are also someone’s personal experience with food.  Write your experiences down in this journal.  This is for…Simply YOU!  By the way, keep an eye out for the “Simply YOU Club!”  Coming soon.
