The Food We Love
FEBRUARY 26, 2016 | COOKBOOK | SHANTZ PHOTOGRAPHY
I love food. I’ve always loved food. I grew up in a family that cooked real food from real ingredients – many of which were grown in our own backyard. Now that I’m grown up and have kids of my own, I completely understand what my parents always knew: There’s truly nothing better than cooking food from scratch from fresh local ingredients.
Years ago, I started printing a collection of my favourite recipes, compiled from treasured cookbooks and magazine clippings. I now update and reprint this cookbook annually. These recipes aren't all fancy or restaurant quality, just easy to prepare and deliciously satisfying. Best of all, my family loves them. This year, my friends encouraged me to photograph each recipe and make my cookbook available to the public.
I created this book in hopes that my kids will continue to enjoy these meals for the rest of their lives, when they’re off on their own and making their own choices. I hope you enjoy them too. Check out a preview of my cookbook, The Food We Love (US $49.80), and maybe you too will want to share these recipes with your family.
