My background

Welcome to Courtney's Homestead! I'm a dedicated mom to two lively vegan boys who bring are my world and keep me busy with their passion for competitive soccer. When I'm not busy whipping up delicious vegan creations in the kitchen, you'll find my husband and me cheering them on from the sidelines of soccer fields, working on renovating our house, or camping in our DIY prison van converted into a family camper van.

Let me take you on a journey that shaped my love for cooking. When I was 18, our family faced a tragic car accident that claimed the lives of my stepmom and 10-year-old brother. In the midst of grief, I discovered solace and healing in the kitchen, providing comforting meals for my grieving father and 9-year-old brother. As I experimented and tweaked recipes, cooking became a source of joy and inspiration. Encouragement from friends and family led me to start a blog and share my creations with a wider audience.

Ten years ago, I transitioned to a vegan lifestyle, and contrary to concerns, my recipes continued to impress people who weren't on the same vegan journey as our family. Now, I'm thrilled to share these mouthwatering vegan recipes with you! Together, we'll embark on a culinary adventure, exploring vibrant flavors, easy cooking techniques, and the magic of plant-based cuisine. Let's debunk misconceptions and prove that vegan food can be absolutely delicious and satisfying.

After nearly 20 years of teaching myself the art of cooking, I've gathered a wealth of knowledge and expertise to meet all your vegan recipe needs. Along my journey, I've fine-tuned my skills, played around with flavors, and gained a solid grasp of plant-based cooking techniques. Countless hours have been spent testing and perfecting a wide array of vegan recipes, guaranteeing they are not only delicious but also foolproof and user-friendly. I'm here to provide you with recipes that will surpass your expectations and bring pure delight to dinner time. Join me as we cook, create, and savor the wonders of vegan food together!

Hey Courtney,

I found your website while browsing for a Belizean Rice and Beans recipe and Courtney's Homestead came up. I must say, I hope we're doing great in SEO as much as you guys are, haha! Huge respect for your accomplishments.

We work in the same space (food industry) and recently we've been working on improving our marketing efforts. We've been thinking about doing something like affiliate marketing, podcast guesting, or content collaboration.

I think maybe there's a potential for us working together in the near future?

Thank you for your reply in advance and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards, Vernard Luz VP of Marketing
