What started as a food blog has morphed into more or less a personal journal. My marriage, my parenting, my life journey is as likely to appear now as my kitchen work... but there's more than one way to feed a family.

I Know I'm a Grown-Up Because...
...I was the one who made the holiday happen.
...I did it with an oven that failed to preheat on, of all days, Thanksgiving morning.
...I tried three new recipes simultaneously and did not spontaneously combust.
...the dishes all got done on time.
...I allowed the children to help and seldom raised my voice, even when Brooks let the egg whites that he was separating slop into the garbage, rather than save them for future use.
...I fell into bed exhausted that night and got up early the next day to start making Christmas happen.
...I love my little clan so much that it makes me want to do hard things for their pleasure.
