A little about me:
I love cooking, eating, exploring, and learning about food. I love food from all over the world and from many different cultures. I love local food and healthy food. I love food from Farmer's Markets and our garden. Thanks to my husband, we eat mostly organic food. I love vegetarian and meat based meals. I love enjoying good food with friends and family.
Cooking and enjoying food out are things that I do to relax. Finding new ways to use ingredients is thrilling as is finding new ingredients to use! I almost never use a recipe as is. I always tweak it a bit.
I decided to start this blog in order to share my love of food and cooking with others. And, on a selfish note, it may help me capture those changes I make so that if they turn out to be good changes, I can repeat them in the future.
I have many other interests as well, but let's keep this focused on the food, shall we?
About the name:
My brother is an amazing chef and has introduced me to so many things in the world of food that I would not have experienced otherwise. I am awed by his knowledge and skills and inspired by him. I have nowhere near the culinary know-how that he does, but I do alright for my husband, family, and friends.
