Thanks for stopping by Alison’s Allspice!  My name is Alison and this blog is my cooking outlet.  Spicy and Bold flavors are my favorites and I am a veggie lover!  I love to cook from scratch and be creative
in the kitchen.  My passion is good tasting healthy food.  Making your food at home helps you to make your own choices about how it’s cooked and what goes into it.  I cook pescetarian at home so recipes found here will be vegetarian or contain fish/seafood.

My goal with this blog is to share things I’ve learned about cooking, making delicious meals at home, and trying to incorporate more nutritious ingredients. I  post tried and true recipes in a variety of styles for everyone to enjoy!  Here’s a little bit more about my style:

  1. I promote plant based eating because I believe it’s healthy for people and the earth. I am not against meat-eating, I just don’t cook it at home.
  2. I try to consume non-processed foods as often as possible, including lots of whole grains.
  3. I love to fish and catch most, if not all, of the fish that I eat.
  4. I try to plan budget friendly meals, because no one is made of money.
  5. Cast Iron is my favorite cook ware.

Why Alison’s Allspice

As a child, I grew up cooking with my family.  Pancakes and ice cream with my dad, tortillas and homemade bread with my mom, brownies and cookies with my sister and brother, and jams and pies with my grandma’s.  One of my grandma’s pies was the green tomato mince.  The first time I had that pie as an adult, the allspice was the flavor that really stuck with me.  When I was trying to find a meaningful name for my blog, I alwasy thought about my families traditions. Alison’s green tomato pie might have worked, but I thought Allspice sounded better ;).  I used grandma’s pie for the logo as well.
