Hey there! I am Melissa, a 41 year old wife, mom of three and certified holistic nutritionist who is passionate beyond words about my family, food and the food I feed my family. Finding better ways to enjoy the everyday foods we love is a soft spot for me and I believe very strongly that food not only provides us nourishment, but brings us together around the table.

Thank you for stopping by…I’d love for you to follow along and stay for a while!

  1. LOVE your blog! I have also been cooking gluten/grain free for a while now for my family…your recipes are wonderful, will add them to my stash!

  2. Indeed!! what a wonderful family..I love your recipes, so simple to make! when I look at the recipe pictures, it’s making me wanna go to the kitchen and try that dish. Love it!

  3. Just ran across your blog and I am in love with your recipes and your approach to food. I haven’t tried a single one yet, but several are very similar to some of my own, so I just know you are on track. I also cook almost all gluten free for my little peach, so that helps a lot too! Can’t wait to get home and start cooking some of these!

  4. Missi,
    Congrats on your new project. It’s awesome!! Girl, you are way ahead of your time. So full of ideas, so informed & so funny! I will definitely visit often to catch up and borrow some of your great recipes.
    Best to you & your lovely family,

    1. My gosh I couldnt feel more flattered…what a compliment, especially coming from an amazing blogger like yourself! I just checked out mylittlejarofspices.com and am so excited to begin following you! Thank you for your support πŸ™‚

      1. Your welcome, I really love your posts and the way you turn a simple list of ingredients into mouth-watering recipes! You were the first person I thought of nominating! Always looking forward to your posts!

  5. Hi, Melissa. I’d like to talk to you for a health/wellness story I’m writing for the Star Tribune. Can you please email me ASAP with your contact info? Thanks much!

  6. HI Missi! just saw someone comment on your facebook about your blog so I went to check it out! I plan to try out some of these recipes too.. they look yummy and not too complicated so thats great for me! glad to see you doing well! Mary Blessing

    1. Mary..what a treat to hear from you. Thank you for stopping by! Definitely keep me posted on what you try out..id love to hear your feedback:) I hope all is wonderful with you…Facebook shows me that your always up to such cool, exciting adventures..I’m so happy for you!

  7. Ok Missi. I tell everyone about your blog. Share with a caterer just today. Thought I had heard of everything but haven’t seen ” fish sauce” before. Please elaborate. Love, your biggest Knoxville groupie.

    1. Oh Miss Cindy…I’m definitely blushing over here…thank you a million for your support! Fish sauce is quite a flavor bomb. You can find it in the Asian section of almost any market and it’s a sauce made of fermented anchovies and salt..savory salty to the max:) Now get your cute teezo to the Midwest..we all miss you and that darling family that seems to be growing up WAY too quickly!

  8. Hi Melissa,

    My name is KP Kwan and I am a Malaysian who run the tasteasianfood.com blog.

    I was browsing your website NourishedPeach this morning and came across your recipe: Asian Tuna Salad. I also saw your recipe Simple Chicken Coconut Curry at kare11.com.

    I totally agree with you that Asian food can be complicated for non-Asian. Therefore, I am working on a related topic recently: The simple Asian sauces and the related recipes.

    The whole idea is to simplify the cooking process.

    I thought you’d love to give me some feedback because we share the same interest in cooking.

    Let me know if you’re interested in seeing it and I’d be happy to forward along the link when I publish it.

  14. Please tell me how to print your recipes to make them in the kitchen (without writing them out long hand) Is there a way? Thanks

    1. Hi Donna-thanks for your note. A “print” option for my recipes is currently in the works. I appreciate your patience and we are working as quickly as we are able to on this. Definitely continue to check back-it will be any day now!

  15. Thank you for the update on printing but also a big Thank You for suggesting to use Namaste flour blend. I love it. I want to make the wonderful cookies & the carrot spice bars, I know they are going to be a favorite around here!

  17. Nice to “meet” you, Melissa. I had to come back to check out your name, as I wanted to call you “Peach”πŸ‘ …which, by the way, is not a bad name to be called. It was a name my daughter took for a while when we lived in the South, and she was obsessed with peaches. She ate them, sketched them, took it on as a part of her internet handle. πŸ‘ I am enjoying your blog. Thanks for visiting mine.

  18. Hi Melissa I have nominated you for sunshine blogger award.This is just a nomination so do not feel Obligated, if you do not want to accept the award I sure can respect that. Actually I nominated earlier but sorry I didn’t let you know
