I love to cook. In my household, my husband and I share the task of cooking, and we each have our specialties. One difference between us? My husband has his tried and true dishes while I love to try new recipes. I scour magazines, cookbooks, Pinterest and my favorite food blog, Smitten Kitchen, for new tasty dishes and treats. This could practically be a full-time job! But alas, it is not.
This afternoon as I was standing over the stove whipping up a huge batch of pasta sauce for dinner tonight, a thought crossed my mind: “I should take a picture of this and post it online!” It then occurred to me that I have often had this thought. So, today is the day I take action! Welcome to my blog.
My intention for this blog will be to share my culinary exploration through the many recipes that I love and know, as well as new favorites I discover along the way (and probably a few failures). And since my husband and I have the pleasure in living in a city that has more restaurants and bars than you could possibly visit in a year, I will also share great food and drink we find out and about.
Let my new adventure begin!
Here is that great sauce I mentioned earlier, along with some dishes I’ve made in the past:
