Adventures in Food

Well, this blog has been an idea for a while, and now I have finally decided to give it a go. In short, I love food. And when I say love, I mean LOVE. And best of all I love my own cooking. But it hasn't always been that way. What began as half-cooked, burnt, flavorless chicken recipes, and "dinner from a box" has, over the last 5 years (and really over the last year), turned into a love of cooking, baking, and finding new recipes. There is something deeply satisfying about making a wonderful meal, or a wonderful dessert, that prompts my family to clean their plates (and usually promts me to get seconds, LOL). Here I want to post some of the great recipes I find, and muse over the joy of cooking and baking. It may be boring for some, but for me cooking and baking has become an important part of who I am. In another life maybe I was a chef, or maybe in a future one. I don't think this life holds cooking as a profession for me, but I still can revel in my love of feeding my family (and my spirit). Enjoy!

Cool new blog! We're starting a new family tradition that once per week we all cook together as a family, making stuff that is good for kids to help with, like pizza, lasagna, quesadillas, etc. So I'd be especially interested to read any recipes that you have that are good for kids to help with. Tonight we made veggie quiche and I was brave and even let Xander cut the mushrooms with a plastic knife. :)
