Welcome to the Hills Kitchen family!

I am Janel, owner/operator/chef/recipe creator of Hills Kitchen. I developed a love for cooking in my late 20's. I am not professionally trained, but rather let my passion, curiosity, and knack of blending flavors be my guide! Food does not have to be boring or bland to be healthy!

In the fall of 2020, I was placed on a cardiac and kidney diet by my team of physicians. I was sure I would never be able to enjoy food again given the overwhelming restrictions that were associated with those diets. As I began to navigate how to work within these perimeters I had been given in order to maintain my health, Hills Kitchen was born. I recognized that I am not the minority in needing finto find foods that still made me salivate, yet fit within my dietary limitations. There are tasty substitutions for just about everything!

I strive to provide healthy, fresh, beautiful food that sparks your salivary glands while being convenient and quick. Your relationship with food should be a positive one. Food is our fuel. It is also love - what brings us together.

I look forward to bringing my table to yours. I promise to always season each dish with a dash of love, a sprinkle of passion, and a pinch of heart.
