I love food

I like to eat. I like to cook. I like trying new recipes. I like cookbooks. I like Food Network. I like cooking magazines. I like food blogs. I love food!

Really, I only started this blog so I could enter a recipe contest on Good Life Eats. Really. I once swore I would never ever in a million years have a blog. Talk about a platform for the self-obsessed. Facebook is bad enough. (Yes, I am addicted to facebook. I check it more times a day than I care to admit.) I thought about this for a while, and thought, heck, why not. At least a food blog serves a purpose. Food one thing we all have in common. Whether you like too cook it or just eat it, we all need food.

I am by no means a gourmet chef. I'm just a stay-at-home mom that likes to cook. I like recipes that are simple, but delicious. My kitchen is small. I don't have any fancy equipment. I don't really even have a decent chef's knife. After nearly 8 years of marriage, I just got my first stand mixer a couple months ago, and it's even refurbished. Sometimes I like to try fancy, more complicated recipes, but for the most part I like easy and tasty.

Come cook with me!


  1. Self obsessed?? Really? I think maybe keeping in touch, telling fun stories, I actually print the blog from the year as sort of a modified scrap book...blogging is fun and a way to keep in touch with friends and family especially the ones who live far away...and even the ones close by since seeing them is a rarity.

  2. As I said in my comment, I know many people use a blog as a way to keep in touch. But I think that for many, a blog becomes nothing more than a compliment-fishing brag page, or they blog abuot every little part of their lives, as if their life will cease to exist if it hasn't been blogged about. I saw a blog post once about the new fitness system the woman had ordered from an infomercial. She took a photo of the box on the door step, then the box on the table, then of her hand cutting the tape on the box, then the open flaps on the box, then the stuff that was in the box, then her hand taking the stuff out of the box, then the stuff laid out on the table... It was one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen.

    I'm sorry if I offended you Kristi, or any one else that merely uses their blog as a way to keep in touch and as a scrapbook of their family's doings.

  3. No offense taken...just thought it was bold considerig the people reading your blog also most likely have them as biggie I just read it and commented at a time I was extemely annoyed anyway and it was the icing on the cake ;)

  4. Yes, in hindsight it probably wasn't one of my smartest statements, hence today's post. :)
