I abandoned posting in this site because, well, I got busy…
Becoming a mother has changed how I see myself and the world. I see the big picture – how I want to spend my time, who I want to spend my time with, and what food I want to serve my family.
I am determined to come back to this space to share what I have been cooking. And I have been cooking aaaallloottt lately. I know that the recipes will not work for everyone’s diet, schedule, and tastes — I hope that you find something here that you like and will enjoy to make for yourself/ family/ friends. I find cooking to be therapeutic — which I know sounds crazy to some — but creating something and working with my hands keeps me sane. The negative dialogue in my head tells me “why post recipes, its been done before, no one cares about what you have to say”… maybe its true, but I think everyone can offer a unique perspective on how they approach cooking. I am pushing those negative thoughts out, and am going to share more. So here’s to a new beginning! Maybe only my mom will read these posts and thats ok! (love you mom!).
My garden is ready to give me all that she has been growing this summer so you can expect some tomato recipes soon (one I am reeealllly excited to share), and if I can get it together maybe even a fermented pickle recipe or two. I am also making my own bread and it is sooooo good.
Anyway, goodbye for now, and see you soon.
