This is a blog run by two sisters. Erin is the big sister who lives in New York, and Silvi is the little sister who lives in British Columbia.
Erin is a professional puppeteer, storyteller and arts educator who loves comfort food. She has, because of health issues, been re-teaching herself to cook without gluten for the last eight years. She usually often instructions for how to make her favourite dishes both with and without gluten.
Silvi is an urban gardener, skilled theater craftsperson, musician and chocolatier, who is currently working for a growing season on a smallish family farm in Turtle Valley, British Columbia. She is a vegetarian and she likes to improvise using seasonal ingredients and alchemical kitchen techniques.
Remember, if you want to make a recipe but don’t have some of the exact ingredients, just substitute for something you have. Cooking is fun!
We’ve also included a page with cookbooks we each use, and ingredients we keep in our pantries for spur-of-the-moment cooking.
