Garden to table organic home cuisine.

Organic & Grass Fed

My garden is composed of all organic and heirloom variety plants. The few veggies, eggs and the meats I buy are organic, pasture raised and or grass fed. I feel this is the most ethical and nutritious choice for my family and the planet.

Non GMO

I DO NOT plant or buy anything genetically modified.

One ingredient whole food strawberry treats!

So simple yet so delicious!!! The only ingredient : Fresh sliced strawberries, about 1/8 inch thick Place strawberry slices on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Dehydrate in a preheated oven at 200 degrees F for 2 1/2 hours. Let cool and enjoy!! They remind me of a fruit roll up, or candy.

Gluten, nut, and refined sugar free old fashioned donuts!
