NOURISH: to sustain with food; to strengthen or build up
I’m Alison, and I’m so very glad you found your way here! This is a place designed for you to find inspiration to create nourishment in your very own kitchen. I love to feed people amazing food as well as ideas that speak to a simpler way of life. We all know there was a time when food was less complicated and nourishment was the standard and not just trendy. That way of life inspired me to share with you the recipes that our grandmas would have made for us — time-worn, hand-written recipes passed down through generations — with a bit of modern flair. We use mostly organic and whole foods as we believe that back-to-the-basics lifestyle is the best path to good health.
After a few decades of teaching myself canning, and raising chickens, ducks and geese, and learning to cook from scratch for many crowds, I bring what I’ve learned here, to you. This has become our lifestyle here in one of the country’s most northern and hence, coldest regions.
I want you to be able to create your own little piece of warmth and nourishment for your family, too!
My children are for the most part, grown now, but we all spend most of our time together (much of that around the table!), and the addition of grandchildren to our world inspires me to do all I can to pass what I’ve learned along. In fact, here and there you’ll see a post from my daughter, Addie who was a contributor for a while on the blog.
With all of that said, let’s go make some drool-worthy food together, hey?
