Life for me, is about good wholesome and nutritious food. Looking after yourself and being kind to others.

Food is nourishment, it needs to be living, and fresh. I see food and I think life and I also think YUM. Food is my favourite thing in the whole world and I love to make delicious treats. Where there is Passion, there is success and I believe my passion lies in my food.

I'm born and raised Australian, I moved to Canada when I was 19 and have always returned here no matter how far I have strayed. Now I call a little place called Powell River home. I own a Gluten Free, Dairy free, Refined Sugar free, Raw, Vegan treats and desserts business. This is my bliss and it truly makes me happy. If you try some of my recipes please show me I would love to see my work re-created.
