Heidi is a wife and mother of two, living in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has been cooking and writing recipes since she was eleven. Her recipes are influenced by: growing up in Nebraska with East Coast roots, living in Santa Monica for six years as a poor newlywed, her English and Norwegian grandmothers as well as seasonal foods.
Food should not be feared, cooking isn't scary. Eating is the simplist pleasure and a respite from daily life. Be flexible, (Flexitarian) limit meat and gluten to special indulgences. Healthy choices are always satisfying and choosing local, in-season foods are prioritized over niche-ingredients or meats that have a high-carbon footprint. However, indulgence every once in a while maintains the old adage of moderation; do the best you can with what you can find easily and also splurge every once in a while-both in eating and cooking.
