Visiting my grandmother’s farm when I was young, I remember the kitchen as the centre of activity; in a really good way. She would gather with neighbours to cook for the workers on the farm during harvest time or to do a whole batch of canning peaches for the winter. That’s where I first learned the joy of preparing food with friends. And of course, eating it. Somehow food tastes better when you’ve put in a little effort and love.
I lost that joy as a young adult and then when first raising a family. Life got really busy and there wasn’t enough time. Somewhere along the way, I rationalized that it was okay to sacrifice a little nutrition and even accept preservatives, because life felt too hectic. As I learned more and more about our food chain, it became a trade-off I was no longer prepared to make. The solution I came up with is the one I am thrilled to share with you on this site.
The Sticky Kitchen takes a unique approach. It brings together cooking and connecting with friends and family. It also offers a way to include your kids to create the foundation for healthy, life-long nutrition. The result is a mouth watering, healthy meal your family will love. Most of my dinner recipes are make ahead options so that you can prepare when you have time or get your kids to do it for you.
