Have you ever sat down to a meal and felt a deep sense of pleasure?
Hunger enticing aromas swirling about your place at the table and causing a most soul filled joy. And at first bite, you pause, relishing the beauty of the flavors dancing on your tongue.
Webster’s Dictionary describes Love as an emotion of passionate affection, pleasure, personal attachment.
Sounds like food love to me.
I’m a Chef, Culinary Instructor, Food Writer… and Farm Girl Wannabe.
Mom of two Sassy Gals, one fiesty terrier, four egg laying hens and Wife to Ranger Craig.
I have a passion for creating delicious whole food recipes – with a little decadence just for fun.
I’m a guest blog author for PlumDistrict.com, an ecommerce marketplace for women and guest food writer for The Issaquah Press, a newspaper publication in Issaquah, Washington.
Karista’s Kitchen recipes have also been published in Taste Magazine, Seattle, WA; Galveston Daily News Coast Magazine; FoodPress, an online publication of WordPress; and featured as an “on air” guest for Seattle’s public broadcasting station KCTS 9 Cooks at Home program.
When I’m not cooking, writing or teaching home chef’s how to cook, I’m usually gardening (actually more like yard clean-up) around my little urban farm.
Or, I can be seen chasing Tank down the street. He thinks he’s a hunting dog.
Food should not only satisfy our hunger, it should feed our soul and nourish our bodies, while delighting our senses ~ Karista BennettI
A few words I live by:
Hug my kids every day,
Purchase pesticide-free whole foods
Support my local farmers,
Learn something new every day,
Being kind is worth the effort.
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,
