Hi! I'm Liz, and welcome to my blog.
I have always loved food, and the kitchen was always the most interesting place to be, growing up. My dad would be there nearly every evening, whipping up supper after a long day at work, surrounded by a barely contained chaos of ingredients, bowls, pots, and pans, with two or three things simmering on the stove and another dish tucked into the oven, filling the house with the delicious smell of dinner. On a weekend afternoon, you could often find my mother there, baking "chocolate chocolate chip cookies", or making pickles with my dad's cucumbers, just picked from his garden. At the end of summer, my mother would be at the kitchen sink, sorting through her trove of wild blueberries to make jam, but always setting some aside to freeze for the long winter months ahead.
Though I grew up in a small town in northwestern Ontario, Canada, where little else grows besides blueberries, pin cherries, and rhubarb, I was lucky to have a dad with a green thumb. His gardens sprawled across our back yard, and each summer you would invariably find him puttering around them, weeding, watering, and harvesting. I knew summer was on its way when asparagus appeared at the dinner table, and that it was on its way out when our meals began with fresh corn on the cob.
Food, for me, has always been fresh and from scratch, and I think it should be as simple and fun for everyone else. I'm all about food that's good for you but also, and more importantly, tastes good.
So stop on by! I'll bring cookies.
