Food is Love
As a child, I remember how I loved meals at home with my family. My mom and grandmother used to make the most heart-warming meals with love. Nothing is better than a home cooked meal, made with love. My husband, Tony, is an amazing plant-based cook, and I am so excited to be able to bring his recipes to each of you. I hope your heart (and bellies) are as warm and full as mine.
This is the first of many plant-based, heart healthy, nutritionally dense recipes....ENJOY!
