Teresa has inspired me to be intentional about the ingredients I use when cooking for my family. I also really appreciate the simplicity of her recipes – you won’t have to track down fifteen ingredients or spend hours in the kitchen, and she recommends a variety of substitutions so that you can make a great meal with what you’ve got on hand. I feel so fortunate for the positive impact Teresa has had on our family’s diet.
