My Life Needs Some Spice

I have recently been exploring my kitchen and the cook books that have been stacked more decoratively than for use.  My mom tried to get me interested in cooking when I was a teenager and although I humored her slightly, it was something I found no delight in.  Now I find myself a wife and mother and I'm also finding my passion for food and preparing healthy and tasty meals for my family. 

I've recently been obsessing over foodie websites like Smitten Kitchen and watching Julie & Julia over and over, downloading Cookbooks and How To Cook books onto my Kindle. I've made my first poached egg and risoto, even Julia Child's hollandaise and bechamel sauces.  I've invested in a few new kitchen tools like a Cuisinart Powerblend Duet.  I've pined over Le Creuset French Ovens and KitchenAid Mixers.  Obsessed I tell you! My four-year-old daughter thinks the Food Network is the only channel we have. 

I've been wondering where I could possibly fit in, in the world of food blogs and food writers and I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter where I can so called "fit in".  I love cooking and I love writing, so therefore, I'm combining them.  Period.

  1. Great new posts! When are you going to let me finish you other site? I like your philosophy of blending food and writing period. :) We could do that.
