My name is Emily, Im in my early 30s, and I live in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, at 7800′, the largest alpine valley in the world. It’s a very rural area, with very limited food options.And I am a foodie. I grew up in and around New York City, and value delicious, unique, and ethnic foods.
I am mostly (about 90%) vegetarian, but eat meat maybe once a week.
The Yankee in me is naturally frugal, and for most of my adult life I have had to live on food stamps and very low income, so I generally strive towards foods that can be made inexpensively.
I struggle with my weight, and am always searching for ways to make healthy food which is delicious and wholesome, and filling.
This blog is primarily a collection of recipes which I find interesting and healthy, delicious, and inexpensive. Occasionally I post an original recipe that I come up with, but mostly I collect some of the great recipes already out there. I generally limit personal commentary. While the more popular blogs tend to have a lot of that, I always find myself scrolling past it just to get to the recipe.
This site was originally designed to be my own personal, easily searchable and browsable recipe collection. The recipes I post are all ones that appeal to my personal tastes. I generally tend to avoid posting “beginner” recipes which are very basic or common.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope the recipes contained here also appeal to you!
