Friends and fellow members of food-related forums began asking me if I had a blog. So, after a nearly 10 year hiatus, here it is!
It's my intention to focus this blog on sharing my cooking and food exploration with you. I will try to include photos, techniques, methods, and recipes whenever possible. While I have taken many different cooking and baking classes throughout my life. I am not a professionally trained chef or baker. I am just a passionate enthusiast and home cook that constantly strives to learn more.
I have started to populate the site with some of my existing recipes, but I'll keep at it over the coming weeks until there is a robust archive. If the recipe is adapted, I'll cite the source. If the recipe comes directly from a book, I will not republish it here without the author's permission. Instead, I'll site the book and the author's name for you.
Within the past 10 years, I developed some severe food allergies, particularly pork and dairy. So, I often modify and experiment with existing recipes to convert them into delicious, dairy free or pork free alternatives.
It gives me great pleasure when people try my recipes and succeed. So, please do let me know if something did - or did not work out for you. I welcome your feedback.
Thank you all for your encouragement and support!
