A biography of Hoot & Jade
How did Hoot learn to cook. We have to give God all the glory here. We both lived the life of addiction. On the streets and had given everything up. All gone. After our testimony of How God Found Us, we began a life of rehabilitation except I still struggled. I was always the functioning addict. I had learned well, been taught well and had years of practice. My addiction would flip flop. I had truly been set free from meth but the opiates had me hung. I could not drop the habit for more than a year. It was my go to for everything and I had a love for them, but I also had a love greater, Jesus. In my last relapse and recovery about 5 years ago, my husband really gave me his all. I could not cook but it was on my long list of daily duties. I couldn’t even make cereal taste good, that’s how bad I was at it. Despite my disease, health and wellness were always my passion. Even as a kid I had this odd unique knowledge of nutrition. I believe it is my gift. My family was accustomed to organic, fresh, whole foods and a very active lifestyle. My husband, who was raised the opposite now had to make dinner. It was his offer of support to a wife who needed help and could not cook. The day we discovered his gift, he looked in the pantry and saw nothing, and said, “What am I suppose to do?” He had never made anything. Then something magical would happen and we’d have a dinner that was unforgettable. I really thought nothing of it and didn’t truly realize his gift until the Lord began to birth the restaurant. He came to a whole new level of greatness through food. Building businesses and taking them to new heights are my passion. Smoothies are my expertise. I’m just good at perfecting. Blending certain fruits and veggies together is more of a perfect match then an art. And the rest is all Jesus.
