When I decided to begin this Blog I had lofty Ideas of how I was going to be the next Martha Stewart and take the internet by storm. I then realized that being the next Martha Stewart is not my dream. My dream is to share how much I love food with the world. As some one with mobility and fatigue issues my approach to cooking is different than any that I see on mainstream TV and Videos. I also want to confess I am not one of those culinary masters who can look in the fridge at chicken, mustard, and some other random things and come up with something special. I use recipes. Lots of recipes. I always tweak as I go making each my own, but have to start with a guide. I hope to spend each week finding a recipe, shopping, cooking, and sharing the results with you. I wish I had the stamina to post daily, but there are days where moving is my enemy. So expect at least one post per week maybe more if my body permits. For my first week I’m starting simple so check back every Saturday and see what we can make together.
Food has always been a passion of mine. In my house you ate everything placed in front of you. The wonderful thing about this rule is, I realized I actually liked everything put in front of me! This love affair never wavered as I got older, the problem is I couldn’t cook all the wonderful things that I wanted to eat. This sad state didn’t bring me down though, because as a true foodie I could always find good food. Things changed for me at 32 when I found out I had a horrible condition called Avascular Necrosis. This condition has resulted in multiple surgeries including two shiny new hips and a connective tissue disease diagnosis. I now had more time then I knew what to do with and my disability income meant no more pricey foodie finds. So I put my big girl panties on over my scars and set out on a culinary journey. This is my story of hits and misses and that one time i set the pot holder on fire. I hope you join me and have a wonderful time with this crippled cook.
