I do not claim to be a great cook. This blog started with two things that seemed go work together well:
- my eldest child’s request for some family recipes
- a challenge to write 100 things about a single topic
What I remember being the best thing about family recipes was the stories that went with them. So, here, I’ll try to chronicle recipes of food as it’s happening here in our house — along with the stories and things I’ve learned about particular dishes (or ingredients or equipment) — as I go. There are five more children who will eventually leave the house (please God, let them leave the house!), so we hope to develop this into a resource that grows and changes and shares over time. Enjoy!
