Recipes and Me

The Start

Starting a food blog is something I’ve wanted to do for some time and I can’t really say why it’s taken me so long to finally do it, but I’m glad I did.  Great food is one of my greatest passions.  It’s this amazing thing that brings people together, gets us to relax and share stories with one another, takes away the stress of a horrible day at work, and gives us a feeling of accomplishment in the kitchen on days when we so desperately need that feeling.  For me food has always had a great connection to valuable experiences in my life and to the people that I care a lot about, it is quite literally connected to the passion for life inside of me.  I have been cooking, baking, sharing, and learning about food since a very young age but only recently as a woman on the brink of 30 have I come to the realization that I can use all of this to connect to the world beyond my own, to connect with other interesting people who have something to say, to share stories about something I and so many adore, to truly live a life I love.  So here on this intimate electronic page of my life I want to share with you my love of great food, great friends, and an insatiable appetite for life and all its offerings.  I hope you find a recipe, or many, that you fall in love with and an experience or two that hits home.  In the end I imagine we’re all looking for the same thing: understanding from the world around us and a way to connect to those in it.
