Growing up, I watched my family come together over plates of food. We’d laugh (or sometimes cry) as we passed dishes around the table. Apple pies. Freshly baked yeast rolls. Plates of grilled vegetables drizzled with olive oil. Food made simply but with an ample amount of love.
As I grew up, I learned to take pleasure in putting disparate items (flour, sugar, eggs, butter, etc…) on the kitchen counter and then transforming them into a whole. Be it a chocolate cake or a loaf of challah bread, the art of creating became my chief endeavor.
And as much as I like to create in the kitchen, I also like to create new worlds with written words. I’m in the third year of a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, and I’m working on a memoir for my thesis.
I now live in Colorado Springs with my sweet husband, Ryan, our cat, Cricket, and our dog, Margot. And we’re looking forward to welcoming our first daughter into the world come June 2013!
The recipes here are waiting to be shared. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do…and I hope you enjoy them with those that you love. Because the art of eating is done best with a table full of friends and family.
