From My Plate to Yours...

My mom tells me how, even as an infant, I spent my days loving to sleep and loving to nurse. I guess it’s not surprising that as an adult, I still love a good meal. (I still love sleep, too, but with a two-year-old and an infant, that pleasure is not as easy to come by.)

Being a stay-at-home mom for the past two and a half years has allowed me to take the time to practice my cooking skills, making my own good meals. I really enjoy cooking for my family. It’s fun to create meals that my daughter gobbles up—I love these words: “Fank you, Mommy, for this da-lish-iss dinnnner!” I have experimented with recipes, hunted for healthy ideas, and come up with some great menu stand-bys.

Being home, though, has sometimes left me feeling like I’m losing my mind to kid’s songs and laundry (I actually fall asleep AND wake up with children's music on repeat in my head). I recently started feeling like I really need something creative to stimulate my mommy mind. Which led to this blog. It’s my creative outlet; my chance to share my food thoughts and favorite recipes, my kitchen experiments (successes and failures), and to have some virtual adult interaction. There will probably be a common theme to most of my posts; it is important to me to cook responsible meals...not only nutritious food, but cooked with consideration for the environment and the food source. And hopefully, maybe, one of my yummy suggestions will end up on your plate one night. ( and please let me know what you think of it if one does!)
