AboutMe ………….

I like good food. I like to eat, I like good restaurants, I like to entertain and I like to cook.

Cooking + Entertaining

Half the fun in cooking is the preparation and the other half is the presentation. Of course cooking is so much better when I’m cooking for friends and family. As much as I like to cook, I also like to entertain. Cooking and entertaining are a natural pairing for me.

The menus and meal preparations in the recipes I’ve published may be simple or complex and may include a recipe from one of the great chefs, a recipe from friends or recipes that just evolve from inspiration. I have included sections for menus from parties as well as simple week-night dinners for you to browse through and use for your inspiration. I will continue to add to these sections from the more memorable dinner parties and gatherings with friends and family. Of course, week night dinners will be more frequent as I tend to cook 3-4 times per week, so something memorable will likely make it into my ‘What’s New’ or ‘Recipes’ website pages.

When I am tapped out for ideas, it’s time to go out. If we’re lucky, we have a meal which has a great presentation, great flavor or is something I have not tried in a while and gives me some new inspiration. If I really enjoy the meal, I will often try to recreate the dish at home. Some of these work their way into my recipes and maybe even dinner parties. You will see some examples of these in my blog.

All of the cooking, writing and photography on this web site is my own. I have prepared all of the recipes and photographed each significant step, as well as the final presentation. I have many recipes that I cook over and over, not so say that I am limited to a handful, as my husband says, I have a foundation of about 350 recipes, so it is never boring.

I also have many, many more recipes which have yet to be converted into a format that I can publish. It seems that I now have my camera in the kitchen every time that I make a meal. Still, it may take some time to re-create some of these, especially since I tend to try something new every week.

This website is not necessarily about 30 minute meals, 15 minute meals or meals with 5 ingredients or less. This is not to say that you won’t find one-pot meals that may take less than 30 minutes to prepare as most of my week day meals, by definition, must be prepared in 30 minutes or less.  I never start to cook after 7 pm. Just a rule.  So, there should be something for everyone, I hope. But, take note, I do include recipes with many ingredients, and at times, many steps.

Do not lose heart, if you like good food, you like to eat, you like good restaurants you like to entertain and finally, you like to cook, we are of like mind and I trust that you will enjoy my recipes as much as I do.
