I love being in the kitchen. My kids love being in the kitchen. By sheer accident, I found that through the every day task of meal prep, we have built a deep and meaningful relationship with each other. I also found that some of my best friendships have been nurtured through a bowl of homemade chicken soup, a plate of brownies or a simple cup of coffee. I have enjoyed new loves, lost loves, new life, lost loved ones, first days of school, first days of summer, bad dreams, big dreams, joy, anger, sadness, contentment . . . all of this experienced in the kitchen with those who mean the most to me.
I am not a professional or trained chef. While I love to spend hours in the kitchen, I don't aim to present recipes that are too difficult. I just want to share recipes with others who are looking for ideas on what to cook and serve our families and friends on a daily basis.
I hope that together, over time, we can find ways to further strengthen our relationships with those who mean the most to us.
Most of all, let's live life with gusto.
