Food. We all love it. The tastier, the better. I love to cook and I love to share what I cook with people. I think the best conversations happen over food. In fact, my experience shows that the better the food is, the better the conversation. I also believe that making great food shouldn’t be that hard. Sometimes it takes time and it always takes planning, but I’ve found it to be a worthy investment. And I don’t think you have to be a trained chef to make great tasting meals for your mouth…your family…your friends…your mom….whoever. You just need a good knife, quality ingredients and a few aces up your sleeve to take your dishes to the next level.

My aces are meal plans and essential oils. Meal planning makes eating good doable. The reason most people don’t do it is because it takes time and mental energy that few of us have just lying around. That’s where I come in. I’ve put together several weeks’ worth of some of my favorite and most requested recipes along with daily prep steps and shopping lists to take all of the required time and thinking off of your plate. There are literally millions of recipes online – access to great recipes is not the problem. The problem is translating those recipes into your actual life, making the shopping list and knowing how to hack your kitchen to make these meal preps efficient and achievable – even for the busiest among us.

As for Ace #2, essential oils make eating good, flavorful food easy. Cooking with oils will make you the talk of the potluck. When I serve food, I want the first word to be more of a moan than a word. Then I want the question, “WHY is it SO GOOD?!” Friends, the answer to that question is essential oils. While not EVERY recipe in my life uses oils, they all could. Regardless of where you’re at with oils, these recipes are chock full of flavor and goodness that results in empty plates at every seat. That’s the cool thing about using oils in your dishes, you can start slow and ease into it. Or, if you’re ready to dive in whole hog, do it! There’s room for everyone at this table. So slide on in to my kitchen and let me show you how to slip a few aces into yours.
