Welcome To My Kitchen!

First, thanks for visiting my blog (and thanks to my love for designing it!!!)  This is my very first attempt at anything like this, so feel free to let me know if you have questions or suggestions!

I LOVE cooking, baking, and entertaining for friends and family.  This site really just gives me a chance to share my tasty creations (and eventually other fun projects).  And yes, I meant to say creations, because the things that come out of my kitchen aren’t just based on recipes.  I get a lot of joy out of tweaking and tinkering with various techniques and ingredients.  Each time I try to make something I’ve never made before, I gather several different recipes from different sources and take notes on the process that will get me to my end goal (cook time, temperature, ingredient ratios, etc.).  The final concoction is some combination of what I liked from each of those recipes and my own personal preferences.  This would explain why no two meals I prepare are ever the same – even if they happen to be the same dish!

I will try to post something new at least once a week.  I love taking advantage of all that life has to offer, which means I don’t always have time to cook or bake.  But being in the kitchen is such a part of me that if I go too long without creating something, I tend to get a little antsy (and even a little grumpy – eek!)  The kitchen is where I find solace and I really hope to share and inspire that love in you through this site.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you come back often!  Be sure to follow me on Twitter or sign-up to receive updates by email.

I LOVE to cook, bake, and entertain for friends and family for two reasons: 1) I LOOOOOOVE food!! 2) I am a people-pleaser. I get my joy and warm, fuzzy feelings by making others feel loved and taken care of. What better way to do that than with a delicious, home-cooked meal?!
