Welcome to In the Kitchen!

I’m Julie – a chef, registered dietitian and cookbook author with a HUGE passion for food and good cooking.

I believe the best way to eat well is by cooking with whole food ingredients, preparing them in simple ways and enjoying food in community. My cooking style is fresh, wholesome, comforting and all-inclusive. My greatest passion is helping others build confidence in the kitchen and taking the “chore” out of cooking, one recipe at a time.

So join me In the Kitchen! I'll be using this space to share recipes, cooking videos and photos of goodies I create to support us being healthier together.

Stick around – you’ll find something new and delicious each week!
