Tara Wojtaszek is a writer, lover of books, nature and life, and likes to make food that is healthy and easy to make. I'm a mother to a beautiful and adventurous baby girl who is always getting into mischief. Every day I aspire to find balance between being the best mother I can be, the best wife I can be, the best 'me' I can be and the best writer I can be.
My philosophy about food is threefold:
Food is medicine, it should be healthy. Most of the recipes you will find here are made with healthy ingredients and are good for the mind, body and soul. I may include the occasional less healthy recipe here and there, but that's because I believe everything should be done in moderation.
Food should be easy to make. I love to cook but I don't want to spend hours upon hours in the kitchen (unless it's a special occasion or I'm making a big batch to freeze for later). I'd much rather spend time with my family or writing. If food isn't quick and easy to make, then takeout becomes more appealing and that is usually way more expensive and less healthy than cooking from scratch.
Food should taste great. Who says quick and healthy food can't taste great? This site is about embracing your palate and making your taste buds sing. Delicious food is food that you'll enjoy making and savouring again and again.
The recipes that I post and link to in this blog embrace these three concepts.
