Is your kitchen stressing you out? Feeding your family well feels complicated and overwhelming. No sooner do you clean up from one meal but you have to think about the next.
You just wish you could get a break once in a while.
I believe simplified systems are the secret to sanity in the kitchen.
It’s not about finding more time or spending more money—it’s about cooking smarter with the resources you have.
It’s about becoming KitchenWise.

When you join the Kitchenwise community, you’ll learn simple systems that will help you stay sane while feeding your family well.
How I became Kitchenwise…
Ten years ago I was a brand new wife and mom trying to learn to make a home and feed my family on a very tight budget. On the outside it may have looked like I was managing, but internally the stress of all my new roles was too much for me. I was having daily panic attacks, insomnia, and blood tests showed my liver was as toxic as an alcoholic’s. My doctor told me that a lot of the food I was eating was adding to my body’s stress, so she gave me a new diet that was quite different than my normal fare.
Suddenly I had to re-learn everything in my kitchen—sounds like a recipe for even more stress, right?!
I’d have to get creative if I was going to do this without making matters worse, so I began to develop systems. I took every new recipe and technique and whittled it down to its simplest, most-sustainable form. Eventually, despite cooking all our meals from scratch, my kitchen was running smoother than ever, and I was able to heal.
Having smart systems in my kitchen has allowed me to continue to feed my growing family through cross country moves, tight budgets, and busy seasons without sacrificing our nutrition–or my sanity. Here at Kitchenwise I offer many of our family’s favorite recipe as well as the strategies I’ve developed to keep my kitchen producing good food without stressing me out. I’ve created two resources for you: “Your Real Food Journey: a gentle guide to steady progress” and “Real Fast Food: plan better, cook faster, eat healthier.”
