“Cooking is an expression of love, so put all of your heart into your dishes! You can literally taste the love when it happens.”

-Chef Hollie

I'm passionate about teaching children to enjoy the taste of vegetables and fruits and helping busy families with easy recipes, strategies, and videos to make cooking and eating together more enjoyable at home. If you relish the taste of a summer ripe peach and blueberry crumble or savory winter roasted squash pasta bathed in brown butter sauce, you'll talk about it, dream about it, want to prepare it again and again! That's what I hope this eBook can do for your family, whether you have children or not. Channel your inner child and join me for a year of playfully eating in season!
