kitchen scribble


I am not an expert. I just like to eat. For information on where my food comes from, visit the Pantry page.

I have no formal training, so I probably hold a knife wrong, and there are likely better ways for me to break down vegetables. But I still like being in the kitchen. I learned to cook from my mom, and also from watching a ton of Food Network. When I first moved out on my own, I had a rotation of three dishes that I made regularly (baked chicken, pan-seared salmon, pasta), and that was about it. Then, when I got together with K, we spent a lot of time in the kitchen together, and I slowly expanded my kitchen repertoire. Now that we have a kid, I’m trying to move towards recipes that are time-saving yet tasty.

It’s always more fun to cook when you have someone else to feed.


  1. Happy to find you! I’ve been looking for other local food/eating/enjoying blogs, and they are surprisingly hard to find. (Waving at you from waaaaay over in Anne Arundel County). Come visit me sometime at Beyond Back Creek ( maybe we can brainstorm with recipes the next time we are overwhelmed with CSA bounty.
    Happy eating,
