In the Kitchen

It’s no secret I love to eat.  I love to eat great food.  Great food can be something fancy and decadent or just plain old comfort food.  I said for years my favorite meal was one I didn’t have to prepare myself.  I think in large part that used to be my motto because I wasn’t a very intuitive cook.  I knew the basics and did an okay job in the kitchen.  The challenge came in feeding a husband with different tastes than my own and raising little girls who, as they got older really had different tastes.  Instead of our meals getting more creative, they just became blah.

Over the past couple of years I’ve tried to change that.  My husband and I have taken a much greater interest in learning to become more successful in the kitchen.  I owe it in large part to my daughters.  Around the same time they became vegetarian.  This big change in their diet really made me think about how I shopped, what I prepared and what I ate.  They’ve really helped me a lot.  My husband and I still eat meat (mostly fish) but we’ve cut way back on meat overall.  Every once in a while I crave a big juicy steak, but not often.

I watch a LOT of cooking shows and record several every day.  Quite a few of the dishes you’ll find here will be courtesy of a Food Network or Cooking Channel chef.  Sometimes I’ll provide the recipe, and sometimes I hope you’ll ask, just to get the conversation going.
