I love food…

read more of my personal testimony here

Why else would person write a food blog? For the love and joy of writing…

I am a mother, wife and a classically trained pastry chef. I have spent years behind the scenes of restaurants, bakeries and even playhouses baking desserts and sweets for customers and employees alike.

Through that experience I learned many things including how cooking itself, is becoming a lost art.

Gentle Donkey is designed to help men and women prepare and grow food the way our fore fathers & mothers had- many years ago. To resurrect the arts of Preserving the bounty, and pantry prepping …instead of buying a box. You will find tips and tricks , along with recipes for delicious safe canning projects, holiday treats and seasonal healthy eating. Live out of abundance of your kitchen – and to eat with gladness.

Come feast with me, every week on this new adventure as we journey towards our King.
