As a child some of my fondest memories were walking through my Auntie’s beautiful and plentiful vegetable, fruit and flower gardens.
My family and I would sample all the fresh fruits and vegetables, pick flowers, learn about the importance of home grown foods and the importance of taking care of Mother Nature.
My love for gardening, growing healthy foods, a fearless mother who published German cookbooks, cooking classes, cooking videos, a sister who was an RD, another who is a chef, and 9 other siblings helped to mold me into the woman I am today. I recognize myself as a mother, wife, registered dietitian, college professor, fitness instructor, chef, foodie and ultimately entrepreneur.
I have fueled my passion for cooking and healthful eating by nursing an abundant garden and canning my produce summer after summer. I have created unique products and preserved them to give to friends and family. I found myself creating starter and finishing sauces so people could put together a healthy meal faster than going through a drive through to grab a bag of fast food.
Currenlty I am growing an abunace variety of squash, cucumbers, herbs, tomatoes, onions and peppers!
Come and check out my garden!
These are the veggies I use to make my signature homemade product: Sloppy José Cooking Sauce.
