Welcome to my virtual kitchen!

I hope you enjoy your visit here, whether it’s your first time or your 30th. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends began asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest in my blog started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!

My other hobby, scrapbooking, is also documented at WordPress here.

The Story Behind the Recipe

I love reading the story behind the recipe when I am doing research for blog posts. I also enjoy cooking shows where the host/chef shares the history of a dish, or their personal connection to a particular food. And because of this, I like to tell the story or history of connection related to recipes or foods I post here. However, I have come across recipes online similar to the meme above. I promise not to do that to you, my faithful followers. In fact, more often than not, my story comes after the recipe, not before 🤓
