Thoughts on Earthbound

“I love working Earthbound Farm’s fresh ingredients into our family-friendly meals. I don’t believe in dumbing down flavors or sneaking ingredients into dishes—I want my girls to know exactly what they’re eating. I especially love working with and highlighting a single ingredient in many different ways.”
