Cook With A View
I am back. I have been away from this blog awhile and a lot of new things have happened. I am still a devoted foodie who now lives in Chicago, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the food cultures of this city. Just this February I recommitted energy to the fashion world by becoming a fashion consultant and a CAbi rep. For many years I designed, created, and sold a line of gemstone jewelry, and after ten years away from design I realized how much I miss working with women and helping them to create their own style sense.
So it is with great excitement that I revive Cookwithaview with new purpose to explore all things beautiful – food, fashion, art, and design. For me you see it is all one in the same.
Food is at the heart of it all – it’s fuel, medicine, community, culture, nature, inspiration and above all it’s beautiful. Much of this site is devoted to healthy, whole food, but I will also bring you interesting segments on other areas of art, culture, fashion, design – anything that I believe contributes to our overall health and wellness.
The three things I hope to achieve with this site are to encourage you to: 1) become inquisitive and adventurous – with food, fashion, art and design, 2) make conscious choices that are right for you by taking the time to listen to your body and your mind, and 3) share your passion – what ever that passion is, share it with others. Sharing it will bring the best peace and feeling of wellness I know.
One final note, this site is a place for me to learn from you. I want to know what’s important to you in the areas of food, fashion, art, design, health, and wellness. Please drop me a note and tell me what you think. Happy reading.
