Hello. Won’t you sit down and join us? I’m Aimée by the way.
You probably clicked through from browsing Pinterest or via a hunger-driven Google search; either way, I’m glad you’re here.
I know you’ll find inspiration among the recipes, stories and tutorials that I have published over the last three years, so let me help you sort through it all and find what you’re looking for.
The best way to start reading posts is straight on the home page—these are the most current things we’ve published (just click the round, orange Simple Bites logo to get back to the home page). If you’d like to investigate something specific, like making pickles or feeding a picky eater you can either use the search bar on the right-hand side, or you can browse the five main categories (Cooking & Baking, Entertaining, Kids in the Kitchen, Preserving, Urban Homesteading) on the left.
What is Simple Bites all about?
We’re family-oriented community that believes in the importance of bringing the whole family together around the table on a daily basis. We want to foster a desire to eat seasonally and locally and help you learn to prepare unprocessed, nourishing food. We offer a wealth of comprehensive recipes, simple preserving tutorials, and honest tips for cooking with kids.
We think that scratch cooking is the coolest thing ever, and are excited by the stories that are written when families gather in the kitchen. Oh, and we’re kind of jazzed about urban homesteading.
You won’t find fad diets or restrictive recipes here, instead you’ll notice a penchant for unprocessed foods and fresh, seasonal ingredients. We just want you to get in the kitchen and cook!
