It's so easy to take for granted the abundant blessing of delicious and nutrient dense foods from the garden. Take time to give thanks and remember the farmer who produced it, the cook who prepared it and the Creator who loves you with the fullness of flavors such as savory, bitter, sour, sweet and salt.
Bruce & Gordo napping during a Sunday football game.
I grew up in a traditional Greek-American home. But through prayer/meditation, life's experiences and education - came to question basic assumptions concerning foods I used to eat.
My awakening conscience motivated me to use my passion for cooking to do whatever little I can - to encourage ethical, healthy eating while advocating for animals.
And so - with help from grace, lessons of love I learned from daily life with friars and inspiration from Saint Francis - I use my cooking as an Instrument of Peace - by sharing plant based recipes, which reverence all of God's creatures (Isaiah 11:6-9), while offering nutritious, delicious tastes of love, peace and joy!
