Not only am I a clean-eating recipe blogger, I'm also a clean-eating private chef, caterer, and culinary consultant! The chef stuff is my livelihood. The recipe blog has become a fulfilling hobby of mine! I find GREAT joy in sharing my recipes. I find even more joy when y'all make the and LOVE them!
Every Tuesday night I have the pleasure of teaching cooking lessons to a young aspiring master chef to be! We've been working together for over a year and his kitchen skills are improving by the minute! I'm so proud of the progress he's made! My young chef apprentice also has a coffee business and serves coffee all over the San Antonio area! For more information on booking coffee services at your next event, please like his page on Facebook.

Young Chef Raj and I recently created a Vegan Roasted Pepper and Tomato Bisque! It's to die for! Bisques are traditionally pureed. Immersion wands (hand-held blender) are the easiest way to puree soups because boiling hot soups are a pain to transfer from the pot to a standing blender. However, If you don't have an immersion blender, a food processor or vitamix will suffice!
Here it is, sassy friends! Enjoy!
