Hi, my name is Kara and I am a chef, homemade enthusiast, forager of ingredients, and preserver of old ways. I reside in the Big Apple with my partner Sean and our two pups. This is the city where everything is easily accessible and available right at our finger tips.

Sean and I are seeking a happy and healthy lifestyle of self sustainability, eating local and healthy foods free of artificial preservatives or chemicals. We put a lot of thought and time into finding out exactly where our food comes from and how it is produced. The food in our house is always cooked from scratch from the all natural real ingredients that nature intended for us to eat. Most importantly its all easily accessible and nothing short of scrumptious. This is our life, this is
