I’m Niki. I’m a mama, a wife, a daughter, a friend.
I cook. Mostly I try to make good stuff using real, local ingredients. I don’t always succeed, but I try. And there’s success in trying, I think.
I bake. I try to use whole grains and unrefined, natural sweeteners. I often adapt conventional recipes for baked goods to accommodate freshly ground whole grain flour and honey or sucanat.
I take pictures. Of food mostly, but also of other things. Like kids and gardens and chickens. But mostly food. You get the idea.
I believe food, when prepared and consumed thoughtfully, does more than nourish our bodies; it also nourishes our souls.
This is a glimpse into my life, in recipes.
