I am a California girl living in sunny Spain with my husband and 2 kids. I love to travel, photograph everything, binge watch The Big Bang Theory, have wine in the evenings and of course to cook for anyone and everyone. I opened my blog to show people that keeping meat off of your plate does not have to be ordinary, and boring. There are so many new incredible flavors to be discovered! Have fun, be ethical and be kind.

It looks good, but I have never heard of Marmite. What is it, and where do you get it?
