All About Me

Hey Y'all!  

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mandee and I'm The Kitchen Wife. 

I live in the hills of Wild Wonderful West Virginia where I am a lover of Christ, wife to John, and dog mom to Lola and Lizzie-Jane.  My passions include books, music, and of course coffee. Oh, and one more thing, I love to cook!  However, that wasn’t always the case.  As little as 10 years ago I was burning water.  Like many of you, I would watch The Food Network and flip through cookbooks thinking to myself “I will never be able to do that.” But I made it my mission to learn how to cook and after many hours poring over cookbooks, devouring cooking shows (as well as numerous kitchen meltdowns), I did it!  More recently my journey has been a plant-based one.  In January of 2020 my husband and I made the decision to go vegan.  To so this has been an adventure would be an understatement, but what I have discovered is that I can enjoy the foods of my heritage without all the junk. 

Here you are going to find delicious, plant based, recipes the whole family will love as well as tips and tricks to live simply, frugally, sustainably, and naturally.  I can't wait to share my recipe box with you as well as this crazy journey that I call life!  

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, Happy Living, 
~The Kitchen Wife~
