About Me

Vogue Vegetarian

Cooking, Blogging, Running, Repeat . . .

Being raised in a large family meant I had my fair share of cooking.  Now with a very busy work schedule and a family of my own I find that cooking is no longer a chore, but something I do for fun to de-stress.  There is nothing like creating a wonderful meal and sharing it with the people you love! It’s an act of love and self expression and something I deeply enjoy. I find joy in sharing my love of cooking with others and motivating friends to give their own kitchen skills a try. I desire for everyone to experience how a simple home-cooked meal brings us together in a intimate and far-reaching way. In a crazy busy world, something so simple as gathering around the kitchen to cook and enjoy a healthy meal is far more soul-satisfying than going our separate ways with a bowl of take-out.

My recent ventures to go vegetarian have opened up a whole new world to me and my family. Now, I not only want to share my joy of cooking, but my passion for eating healthy meals and how this profoundly affects your life in far-reaching ways you’d never imagine. Eating this way allows you to be your best, accomplish more and be happier, healthier people.

Of course, I’d like to say cooking and blogging are my career, but in actuality I am a full time Realtor of 17 years.  It’s a family affair and it keeps me busy with extra long work weeks… but working with my sisters makes it a blast.   When I’m not selling homes, you’ll find me in the kitchen whipping up meals for the next several days, trying new recipes and blogging about the ones I like the best.  And in between that, I’m typically on the trails, training for a marathon with my running pals or spending time with my huge family and extended family.  It’s a busy life, but it keeps me on my toes.

Happy Cooking, Blogging, Running and Whatever Else catches your fancy!

    I want you to know that I think your blog is wonderful. Having made the transition from omnivore to herbivore in the past four months, your posts are terrifically inspiring!

    I too have had a whole new world of lovely, (most times) healthy and delicious food opened up to me. Isn’t it wonderful? I’m totally crushing on vegetables.

    Another thing I am crushing on is this blog. The layout is so proper, and your posts so full of care and thought. And to top it all off, you seem like a really lovely lady to boot!

    Thanks for all the effort you put in.

      Wow, Jessica! Thanks for the lovely comments. I don’t think that I will wipe this smile off my face for the rest of the week. I am so glad you are enjoying the herbivore life. It really has made a world of difference in my life and the more I eat this way, the more changes I see. I love hearing about how it has affected others in a positive way too. I always look forward to your blog and the inspirational photos as well. I am glad we can inspire one another. Thanks again for the wonderful comments! Cheers!
