Last year as an anniversary gift to my husband, I made a cookbook filled with all of our favorite recipes. From childhood favorites to recipes inspired by our travels, I hoped the book would continue to grow. It hasn't. During the last year we have tried dozens of new recipes. Some are lost in my heaping pile of recipe clippings. Others have mysteriously vanished. I plan to use this blog to chronicle and share our cooking adventures with friends, family and other foodies.
