About me

February 11th, 2009

 Hello! I am Ceres. I am 33 and I live in Columbus, Ohio with my adorable husband of 14 years. I am currently taking a sabbatical before heading back to school full time and am enjoying most of my free time in the kitchen. I am not a chef. I do not own a trendy café or live on  a farm. My gardening attempts are amateur at best, and my knife skills are downright scary. 

I began cooking and baking with my grandmother when I was 3 years old, and it has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy long days leisurely spent wandering through local produce markets, farm stands, and pick your own farms. I almost always leave the house with a large empty basket and my camera to capture the sights, colors, fragrances, and flavors of the season. It makes me happy to indulge in life’s simple pleasures, so I am a huge fan of quick and easy techniques that make “Living the Good Life,” simple and easily attainable. 

Ceres Secrets is the place where I record my discoveries, tasting notes, recipes, pictures, and favorite simple pleasures.


Welcome to my seasonal kitchen!

    I live in Ceres California. My granddaughter has to do a report on raspberries and I saw this on the web, searching for facts and pics. How cool is this. Thanks and God bless.
