I love to cook. I find myself wishing sometimes that life were simpler so I would have more time to be in the kitchen…Autumn’s tumbling schedule of four days/week, two-plus hours each afternoon has really put a crimp in things the last couple of years, although I wouldn’t change it for anything.
If there’s one thing I could change, it would be the clean up. I can’t stand loading and unloading the dishwasher. (I feel kind of the same way about laundry…) But there’s something about a kitchen, when the meal is prepped and in the oven or on the stovetop, and all of the dirty dishes are put away, the countertops glistening cleanly, that just feels right. It’s as it should be.
I hope you all enjoy my compilation of recipes, at any rate. Most are taken from family, friends, and various cookbooks and other sources and I’ve just tinkered with them until I’ve gotten them exactly like I want them. Many have a story behind them, and if so I’ve included that with the recipe. If you have a recipe you’d like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your story. I love adding to the collection.
