I'm an artist who since moving to Florida has branched out my creativity to the kitchen. I've been raised to appreciate food and the benefits that a varied diet can provide. So many wonderful and healthy foods all around us. I want to try them all! Now that I'm in a coastal Florida town, I have been all about utilizing all the fresh tropical and seafood options that are all caught and grown locally. ALWAYS choose local over imported when possible. Can't go wrong with supporting local businesses and it doesn't get any fresher!
