About Us

My name is Kristen Gayman. I have been a cook for 25 years following in the footsteps of my mother, who made every meal and dessert from scratch. My approach to food is based on her method of simplicity. When you prepare food for your family using healthy, whole ingredients and find efficient and economical ways to approach meal-planning, it all falls together. You feel better. Your children get the right kind of food they need for healthy growth. You save money and time. And there are more opportunities for family togetherness around the table.

My Background

For many years, cooking this way was just something I did for my own family. I learned from experience the best way to organize my tools, the fastest way to wash dishes and the easiest way to save money at the grocery store. Over time, I also learned the rewards of incorporating whole versus processed foods into the plan. Eating this way has personally helped me keep the pounds off and has given me more energy to get through the day.

Over the years friends have asked for cooking advice and I’ve found myself dismissing their suggestions that I could make a living cooking for others. It wasn’t until last year that my thinking changed in the course of just one day.

Stuck in the car on the way home from a sales meeting, I listened to a podcast urging listeners to find true success by using the unique gifts God has given them. When I listened to the global accomplishments of three average people who had taken that approach, I began to think about what my God-given gifts were – and whether I was utilizing them and my strengths to the fullest. It was my ‘a-ha moment!’
