About the project

Good people—and even better food

Healthy. Sorta. Sweet. started as a course project to design a collaborative cookbook, for which each of us submitted one of our own favorite family recipes and a story to go with it. For my take on the project, I wanted to focus on what goes into the food and where it comes from—the ingredients that play a key role, and the people and stories that make each recipe as special as it is. What came out of it was Healthy. Sorta. Sweet., named for the three (almost cohesive) categories I was able to fit each recipe into. A couple of the spreads are shown below, but feel free to view the publication live on ISSUU, or download a PDF to your laptop or iPad yourself and get cooking—you may just find your new favorite meal or dessert (or two or three).
