Hi! I’m Ruby

Sometimes I tweak traditional recipes, and sometimes, I get bit by the creative bug and whip up new and unique ones. I’ve had the opportunity to try various cultural dishes from the quarters of France to the mountains of Iceland, to the islands of Greece to the food trucks of New York City. They’re all full of flavor, and I like to create healthier versions of these dishes while keeping the flavor intact. Enjoy these oh, so delicious recipes!
