IMG_2169My favorite food is simple and light and is an expression of seasonal flavors. I am a non-discriminatory cook so you’ll find raw,vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, omnivorous, carnivorous, whateverarian on the site. I seem to add olive oil, lemon juice and quality sea salt to every dish. I rarely follow recipes and encourage you to play with ingredients. I’m always adding, changing, substituting and experimenting.

I love recipe sharing, potlucks, gardens, food forests, all of the farm animals and days filled with hours of playing in the sunshine. I hope to make you hungry for fresh, delicious, seasonal and local foods. I also hope to encourage you to get outside and play and then take care of yourself with good food. I think we’ll all be a little more okay if we eat good food and play outside as much as we can.

    Hi Amy:

    I want to use that pic of you on top of Arrowhead Arete for a book we’re just finishing up. How might the photo editor get hold of you?

  4. Hi Amy! I am so impressed at the knowledge of self-care you are spreading here! I love that you are impacting the youth in positive ways. May you always find a mountain to climb or a child to inspire. If our paths cross, I’d like to get to know you more.

    Hi Amy! My name is Mindy Guymon. I just saw in a Facebook post about your brother being the first man with Down syndrome to climb Grand Teton. That’s amazing!

    I have a one year old with Down syndrome and for Down syndrome awareness month I am making a video for a song that I wrote about people with down syndrome and how they can accomplish amazing things.

    I was wondering if you would be willing to help me with this project? The lyrics of my song literally talk about having “summits to peruse” and I would love to have video of Andrew climbing.

    Is this something you would be willing to help with?
