My name is Colleen and its simple.. I love food. Growing up I was always fascinated by the preparation of meals made by my mom. The sounds of the mixer, the smells throughout the house, the elegance of her slicing always intrigued me and before I knew it I found myself mixing things together hoping they would turn out as tasty as my moms recipes. I love the culture, art , and aromas behind food. Which lead me to study Public Health Nutrition at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Recipes and food preparation allow someone to step out of their comfort zone and explore something deep within them. Living in West Chester for 21 years, it has opened my eyes to the richness in food culture the town has to offer. West Chester has a passion for “buy fresh, eat local”. The restaurants and cafes emphasize hand picked, local and fresh ingredients in all of their meals by using Kennett Square mushrooms, Doe Run Cheeses, Highland Orchard Fruits and Veggies, Lancaster County Black Angus Meats just to name a few. This blog allows me to share with you my favorite simple recipes and the hot spot dinning locations in and around West Chester! Bon Appetite!
