My name is Erin, I was born and raised in Jerome and now live in Boise with my husband and four kids on a teeny-tiny parcel where we raise chickens and keep bees along with our three cats, two dogs and even a rabbit.

We don’t have much space to have a garden so I rely heavily on the farmers market to fill the gaps and I’ve made so many great friends along the way.

Some might say that I’m obsessed with food, it’s absolutely true. If I’m not in my kitchen cooking for my family, I am probably out strolling the market and dreaming up our next meal.

I’ve been cooking for almost 20 years, inheriting the family Thanksgiving feast at 18.

I’ve worked with Le Cordon Bleu trained chefs on a meal planning app and my latest endeavor is my food blog www.unapologeticallyaip.com where I create tasty recipes using real food ingredients for those living with food allergies and/or autoimmunity.

Not much gets me more excited than being able to buy the freshest local food that is better for people and the planet. I am so thrilled to be working with our local producers to bring you some amazing new recipe ideas to try with the best stuff available this season. Stop by and see what’s cooking!
