From the Garden She Grows...
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have grown up in Southern Illinois and Indiana. Originating from a family of farmers and gardeners, I was exposed to natural, whole-food options my entire childhood as well as beautiful landscape and scenery. My grandmother brought me up cooking in the kitchen and rarely from a box or published recipe. From her, I learned how to be an at home cook, to balance my plate, and, most of all, to eat a variety of vegetables! For this, I am eternally grateful.
