Hi, I’m Cecily and I’m new around here! I cook primarily for my super-picky husband and daughter and occasionally for girls’ night events and such. I’m currently a stay-at-home mom (although I rarely do) and wife. No matter how tired I am in the evenings, I always enjoy cooking dinner.
My food philosophy seems to go in cycles, one phase after another. Currently I’m on a “real food” diet; I’m following the whole foods philosophy. I’m trying to get my family to jump on the bandwagon too. Eliminating over-processed, chemical laden “food substances” is a start. I’m trying to add tons of fresh veggies and fruits to our meals, too. Hopefully this phase will last. In the past, I’ve experimented with several diets for overall health and wellness such as The Zone, the paleo diet, vegan, anti-inflammatory and vegetarian. I’ve also gone through phases of totally gluttony: the Krispy Kreme and nacho diet just didn’t work out. Maintaining a healthy diet for the family is easier said than done. My five-year-old likes to gag to show her disgust after tasting foods she doesn’t like.
My recipes reflect my experiences with my ever-changing diet philosophies (some super healthy, some, just fun and yummy) as well as my childhood in the South and the seven years I spent living in New Mexico. Regardless of what my current food philosophy may be, one thing has always remained the same: I love to cook and eat. I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I do!
