It’s funny thinking that this will be my first post. I have been working up to this first step of what I hope grows into something very rewarding for me. No, I don’t mean monetarily, I don’t mean famously. I mean a sense of accomplishment, being an inspiration to others, and finding my passion for life. I can step into my kitchen, small it may be, and be the ruler of my domain. I can create dishes that can transport me to places I otherwise my not be able to afford to visit. I remember my Mom and Maw-Maw always trying to get me in the kitchen to learn to cook. Granted, I did learn a lot from them. Although, my true lust for cooking didn’t come out until the husband and I decided to plant a little itty bitty garden in the back of our new home. It wasn’t much this year…a couple Rosemary bushes, a Cilantro plant (killed by the extreme heat this summer), and various pepper plants (we love a spice to our food). Next year, I am planning a much larger garden….he just doesn’t know that yet. So as I prepare to make my first dish for my new blog tonight, I am going to start with a couple of items from our garden this year.
It’s your kitchen, your pantry, your stove, your life….don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit.
