The Kitchenista

"Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly." ―M.F.K. Fisher Fisher

To bring people together over meals you don't have to stress over, to share tips and tricks to give yo

Why I love Julia too....as a home chef.

[03/28/16]   Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Anything special for Easter? We did FAJITAS. Why not? I'm in Texas now!

03/25/2016

Friday idea.....when you're at the store this weekend, can we each do a little better at keeping this in mind? We'll feel better ALL week long.

[03/24/16]   Easter is this weekend.....does your family cook anything special?

03/23/2016

Another good strategy. Have you thought about these ideas when you are shopping for the week? I really like the idea of using what is left; buying things that have more than one use are huge, whether its something you can eat raw or cooked (think spinach for a salad or sauteed as a side or in pasta) or even something like beets - where you can eat the actual vegetable AND the greens on top. Be strategic and creative so you don't waste!

03/22/2016

Keep this in mind when you swing by the grocery this week! #plants #behealthy #foodlove

03/21/2016

Welcome back, Monday! Grab yourself a fresh cup and let's do this!

Sounds much more adventurous, doesn't it?
