And thank you, dear reader, for stopping by my new blog! Two events in the past year have inspired me to join the legions of food bloggers:

Food52 -  This wonderful recipe-competition website has given me the nudge I needed to create and document my own recipes.  Before this site, I was a strict recipe-follower.  Positive feedback on this site has given me much more confidence in the kitchen.

An Email from My Sister - A few days ago, my sister Helen sent me an email with pictures of meals I had made in the past year.  I was shocked at how many of them I had forgotten.  I am hopeful that this blog will serve as an archive of the dishes I make.

So, I'm planning on posting all things food-related here:  recipes I make (whether my own or others), restaurants I visit, and the various goings-on in my backyard garden.  I hope you enjoy it!


  1. I love this! I'm so excited that you are FINALLY starting this blog! I can't wait til all the other recipes are up! And more and more! And thanks for the shout out too!

  2. p.s. I love the banner too, can you teach me how to do that?

  3. thanks, sister! yes! i'll show you right away!

  4. I was so excited when I checked my fb home page. You have a blog! It's fun to read and I love the pictures.
