I decided to start blogging shortly after the birth of my second. It seemed to be a logical step for someone who's been journalling since the age of 10. While it's full of recipes, this is not strictly a food blog because, quite frankly, I am at best an amateur chef. It's more a mishmash of recipes, reflections and projects all intertwined as a part of daily life.
Food does and always has had a special place in our lives. When I was growing up, the kitchen was the nucleus of family life; the heartbeat of the home. The whole family met at least once a day in the kitchen, and usually over a meal - fresh baked bread and stew, or mom's homemade macaroni and cheese. Here, amidst food, we discussed problems, attempted projects and shared dreams. Our food wasn't always physically edible - sometimes "food" meant a good cry, an hour with the paintbrushes, or a good book - but it was always wholesome and creatively delicious! My husband and I are hoping to bring this tradition with us for our children: creative food to help fill body and soul with wholesome strength, quiet simplicity and a contented, loving heart.
