I grew up in a fairly close family, and the cooking and eating of food were some of our major bonding rituals. I love to cook, and over the years I collected nearly all of my family’s recipes. Some of these require modification; others are perfect in their original form. I am slowly working my way through all of them, with new posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
My ultimate goals in all of this are to connect with other “food people”, and to hone my skills as a writer, a photographer, and as a cook. My dream is to become a paid professional recipe tester, and while I am not currently in a position to enroll in culinary classes, I do not see that as an excuse. This blog gives me the unique opportunity to improve my craft while honoring my family traditions and sharing the love of food with others.
Unless otherwise stated, all food photography on this blog is mine.
