Welcome to my food blog. I am a food addict who is always hungry to try a new recipe, new sauces or new combination of foods. I am a cook enthusiast, with a zillion cook books, believing you can never own too many cook books, but I probably do!! I started food blogging with a goal to combine all my passions, love for food, cooking, gardening and photography, all into one. I love to cook from scratch with whole foods, using real ingredients like, fresh vegetables, herbs, meats, butter, and cheese. I am always looking for new ways to cook what I am already cooking.
Foods I love, spicy, smokey, sweet, sour, cheesy, hot, all at the same time, almost. I take ordinary recipes and infuse herbs and my own sauces in to them to make delicious cuisine.
My passion for cooking started when I was very young I was always trying new foods and new ways to cook them. I took some cooking classes and experimented with adding different variations to my mothers recipes. Some good cooking came out of that and some not so good cooking, ah well cook and learn.
I live in the Mid-West with my family and we have a passion for growing and preserving our own foods. We grow our own apples, blackberries, aronia berries, strawberries, raspberries and grapes. We grow a large garden with heirloom tomatoes, peppers, squash, popcorn, lettuce, peas, carrots, melons and more.
So here I am blogging on my passions eating, cooking, gardening and photographing it as I go. So fun and exciting, I hope my food blog will inspire you to cook something delicious or grow something to eat. Thanks for viewing!
I would love to hear from you, let me know what you like.
