Cooking is not my day job, just a back-burner obsession. I’m one of those people who is always thinking about my next meal. I’ve been known to lay awake at night, combining ingredients and planning menus in my head. A Sunday trip to the farmer’s market, followed by an afternoon in the kitchen, is the closest thing I have to church, and I can’t think of anything that makes me happier than sharing a home-cooked meal with people I love.
So, this is a place to gather my food thoughts in one place–a great recipe I want to remember, that inspiring combination of flavors from the new restaurant I just tried, or my favorite farmer’s market find. It’s a notebook of flavors that linger in my mind, like something simmering away for hours on the stove. And who knows–maybe once I’ve written it down, I’ll sleep better.
