I’m a thirtysomething gal who grew up in Oregon’s Willamette Valley where I ran, hiked, looked out over great distances, and cooked with what I believe to be the world’s most spectacular ingredients. I have worked as a dishwasher, a pizza tosser, a line cook, a caterer, a waitress, a bartender, and a cooking school instructor. These days I write recipes here at tummyrumblr and offer my services as personal chef in Portland, Oregon.
I eat at home most of the time because it makes me feel happy to connect with what I am eating through cooking. As a chef, I actually find eating out can be pretty disappointing (especially the part where you realize you could’ve made the same thing at home with better ingredients for half the price). Fortunately, there are plenty of exceptions to that rule here in Portland.
The recipes I post here are foods that make me feel good. What makes me feel good? Buying the best quality, pasture-raised cream, butter, and eggs that I can afford. Eating a huge variety of vegetables from either my local grocery store, a farmer’s market, or from my own backyard. Making a pie from scratch.
What makes me feel lousy? Cheap bacon, things in plastic packages (I’m lookin’ at you, pre-washed salad!), the baked goods at Starbucks, low-fat anything.
Most of my recipes fall under the guidelines of the Perfect Health Diet, which I use as a general eating template. The PHD encourages the consumption of saturated fats, which have come to be perceived as terribly unhealthy (much to the detriment of our general health, in my opinion). If you’re a follower, too, the recipes that fit the PHD are tagged “perfect health diet”.
