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.

Here’s a wine grossly underrated!

Chateau Amour, Grand Vin Bordeaux Medoc, France Smooth, almost light, earthy, but big enough to pair with a burger or my homemade raw chocolate. Not astringent as some reviews say. No this isn’t a FABULOUS expensive bordeaux but it’s a steal for $3.99 @ Trader Joes!!
