About Me

Hi, I’m Kelly and I live on a beautiful 12 acre homestead in southern New England.

I love making healthy & vibrant plant-based recipes on a daily basis.  3 years ago my husband and I started our homesteading life and are embracing nature fully.  We chop our own wood, make maple syrup from our trees, created trails throughout our property, grow food in our gardens, and began beekeeping!  Each year we are working on becoming more sustainable and self-sufficient on our land.

I moved to New England about 7 years ago to finish a second Masters Degree.  I was lucky enough to meet my wonderful husband and be able to land my dream job.  We reside in a lovely post-and-beam home (with a very pink kitchen) which we share with our 3 purrr-fect kitties… and our 5 amazing beehives!

3 years ago we decided to give beekeeping a try!  It was a totally new journey for us and felt great to do something awesome for our plants and for the bees.  We now have a few well-established colonies and see our bees happily buzzing around our trees and flowers in the summer.  Last year I even caught a wild swarm of bees on our property too, expanding our little apiary to 5 hives!

I started this site as a Recipe Archive for myself to remember and write down all the recipes that I create that we LOVE.  And as an added benefit- a wonderful community of people started liking, commenting, and sharing these recipes and making them their own.  Most of my recipes are vegan as that is what I cook on a daily basis, but there are a few meat recipes here which are Family Recipes (that I want to keep for posterity!) and vegetarian recipes with a vegan option.

Oh, and lot and lots of beekeeping posts and hive updates!

I love working and living on our land, walking our wooded trails, and coming up with fresh, plant-based, and healthy recipes for my little family.

Happy trails!

Kelly
