Recipe Creator Honors The Importance Of Food With Healthy Dishes

Liz is a recipe creator, photographer, writer & enthusiastic eater and she is currently based in Newburyport, MA. We came upon her impressive Instagram account “Floating Kitchen” and then visited her blog which includes a collection of some of her favorite seasonally inspired, real food recipes. “I’ve got everything from healthy salads and soups, to indulgent desserts and boozy sips. So no matter what you’re in the mood for, I’m sure you’ll discover something to satisfy your cravings!” she says about her blog. Food has always been a major focus of her life. Her family owns a small farm in Salem, New Hampshire and they serve their local community since the early 1900’s, by growing, sourcing and delivering the best fruits and vegetables. “I was lucky enough to grow up appreciating (and learning to cook with) what the changing seasons had to offer. And I developed a strong understanding of our role in being stewards of the land.” she states in her bio. She doesn’t regard food just as business but sticks with the mantra “food is love” which she repeated many times when she was a little child. She explains; “Today, it’s a phrase that I utter myself on a regular basis. The women in my family loved to cook (and the men loved to eat!). So home cooked meals and gatherings were an almost daily occurrence. The power of those gatherings – be it in the food shared, the stories told or the traditions explored – made a lasting impression on me. And my blog is my way of “paying it forward”. It’s how I honor and celebrate the importance of food.” Today, we present some of her most delicious food which will lead you visit her blog for recipes immediately! Hope you’ll be inspired.
