Hello and welcome to my blog!
Let me introduce myself…
One of my passions in life is doing just that – stirring up creative deliciousness from wholesome ingredients and ladling it out to my family, friends, and any one who’s passing by at the moment.
(I also don’t mind stirring up a debate now and then about food politics, the FDA, GMOs, big Agriculture, and the future of our food, but I try not to spice it up too much around here. I want you to be able to come back for more without worrying about scorching fiery sensations.)
Why I blog…
Well, several reasons, but the first one is YOU.
- If cooking intimidates you… I believe everyone can cook and that you don’t need boxed mixes to do it. I want everyone to know that cooking doesn’t have to be done by the (cook)book, but can be a very creative outlet for your inner chef. It really isn’t rocket science. Before you know it, you’ll be stirring it up without recipes, too!
If you’re looking for new recipes…You’ll find many here. Most of the recipes I post are ones I created myself, so you can give me all the credit (or the blame if they flop). There are a few straight from a blog or book (I’ll make that clear in the post) that I thought were too good not to share with my loyal readers; then there are the ones in between – recipes with a big personalized twist, or several recipes meshed together as one. (That’s where it gets complicated.)
If you are gluten free, paleo, grain-free, or just want healthy recipes… I have many friends who have dietary restrictions and I love catering to their needs. That said, you will find a large range of recipes to satisfy the most restricted eater. If you don’t find what you need, contact me (e-mail below) and I’d be happy to create a recipe with your personal specifications. (See The Penarious Challenge.)

Many thanks to all my loyal readers out there – you know who you are! You all are the ones that keep the spoon going ’round.
Please feel free to contact me…
I LOVE hearing from you.
