Gender Female
Location Salem, OR, United States
Introduction I grew up in Alaska hiking in the Chugach range, fishing for salmon in a secret location that I'd never reveal, and roughing it all summer in a rustic lake cabin without plumbing or power. I loved it! Since then I have become a wife and mother, writer, founder of EVIE'S CANDIES, finalist on THE RACHAEL RAY SHOW'S "Hey, Can You Cook?! 3," fitness instructor, finalist on Comcast SportsNet Northwest's "WANTED: Adventure Host," basketball coach, and Bible teacher. Whew. Living in Oregon's Willamette Valley, everyday I am inspired to not only get out and explore the outdoors, but to cook! The abundance of hazelnut groves, blackberry brambles, pear orchards, blueberry patches, vineyards, and more is enough to make anyone's mouth water! Fresh air and food seem to have fused here into one big recipe for healthy living. And so I've decided to add another passion of mine - writing. In this blog, expect to find FRESH AIR + FRESH FOOD, the perfect recipe for healthy living. It's here that I record my inspiration and hopefully inspire you to live healthfully too. "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31
