From the 4000 sq. foot gardens to the 12 hour canning marathons. 1000’s of hours building gingerbread houses to the delicate chocolate work I do. The all night sessions running the smoker or BBQing for friends. To the lighting set ups to the many photo shoots to capture it all.

It is what drives me creatively. I love taking on new projects and stepping outside of my comfort zone. It is amazing what can happen when you put yourself out there.

There is nothing more gratifying then taking the freshest ingredients available and turning them into something spectacular then sharing that with those you love.

Welcome to Nutmeg Disrupted

I have been a recipe developer for 30 years and have collaborated with some of the best brands in the space. With a strong online presence I enjoy being an active participant in the internet creative community!

As long time Field Editor for Taste of Home Magazine. I created content for 13 years for their print magazines and books and also some of their online content.

 Featured in the Canadian Tire online catalogue in 2013 and was also published in Our Canada. Most recently I had the honor of having a back page image of Our Canada in August of 2019!

I compete in gingerbread house competitions to raise money for charity.  To be able to make something with sugar and flour and raise 1000’s of dollars has become one of my passions. With 15 years building gingerbread structures I love taking my creativity to the next level!

  4. Hey Redawna, Great site! Love your photos! I’ll be back to explore some recipes!

  5. Hi!
    I love your website, you have alot of good recipes and photos!
    I found it while I was looking up a Savannah Bar Recipe from Great Harvest and you had put your website into the blog, making it seem like you may have a recipe similar to it… if you do, I can’t seem to find it on your website.

    Can you help me?

  6. Lo Redawna,
    I stumbled upon your website while looking up a food recipe! You have a GREAT SITE!!! I especially like the way your very artistic and beautiful photos of your foods jump off the screen at me! You have a way of explaining what you are doing that reads like an adventure come to life…… Keep up the Great Work! I will be back to see what you are up to!!

  7. Thanks for stopping by Bob!

    I am slowly getting the blog to have the look and feel I am looking for. I am a huge foodie and needed a place for my pictures, recipes and adventures. I am also a Field Editor for Taste of Home so my days are fillied with food.

    I thought I knew my way around a camera until I started submitting to Tastespotting and Foodgawker…..hard editors to please but it has made me concentrate on the photography even more. Its been a great learing experience!

    I will have to post a few shots in my photography area of Gord’s show in Grande Prairie, meeting him was seriously the best night of my life!!!

    Thanks again for stopping by!
    I look forward to chatting with you more!


  8. Hi Redawna!

    Thought I would pop by and check out your place. It’s nice and cozy here I like what you’ve done with it.

    I could seriously spend some time digging around in here as I love my food. Looks like you have a serious eye with a camera as well.

    Thanks for popping by my place and for all of the nice words.


    PS. Sept 29 is my birthday, and you were meeting Gord Downie you brat !! 🙂
