I started this blog two years ago as a way to inspire me to try out some new dishes in the kitchen and let’s face it..not to resort to ordering something on seamless for dinner all the time.
But if you told me 10 years ago that I would start a cooking and baking blog I would have never believed you as certain dishes in my life have resulted in such horrendous failed kitchen attempts that I am surprised I cooked again…like the time in college when I thought I could make pesto chicken or being invited to a barbeque and electing to bring beer as I had nothing to make (although please note beer is always welcome for adult festivities, at least in my house!)….in fact, that memory is so distinctly ingrained in my brain that I still remember sitting on a couch in Washington DC looking at the girl next to me who brought a cool whip pie. I was so impressed and thought to myself, “I really need to up my game.” After all, a girl has gotta have a few good recipes up her sleeve.
So here’s to finding all those recipes! I hope this helps you as much as it does me through all the barbeques, birthdays and day to day living…because even life’s lil moments deserve to be celebrated with good food!
Lastly, this blog is dedicated to my Emma …may she find all of these (or at least a recipe or two) helpful one day and may she bring a bottled beverage because she wants to, not just because she has nothing else to make.
Thank you for following along! You can also contact me with any questions, comments or feedback you may have on my contact page or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
