Julianne De Witt


Hello, I'm Julianne De Witt! The kitchen is my happy place and where I spend the most time when I’m at home. I love everything about cooking – planning what to eat, shopping for the ingredients, and preparing and eating all the yummy foods! I live in Vancouver with my husband Patrick, my two sons Jack and Henry, and our 140+ lb wonderful slobbery Newfoundland dog, Arlo. Patrick is a type 1 diabetic and has been since the age of 6 years old and to support his (our) health, we stick to a mostly paleo diet but we really enjoy everything in moderation. Sometimes we need a big plate of pasta or chocolate or a glass of wine (or 3 – who am I kidding ha!). My kiddos, of course, love their carbs!
