Sharing tips, recipes, and insights to help us in our journey to real whole food cooking in our kitchens.
My Kitchen Romance has been greatly influenced by Christina Pirello’s CHRISTINA COOKS. I was barely four paragraphs into her Introduction and was eager to get out of my ‘meal rut.’ I loved imagining myself ‘finding pleasure in the process of cooking, the shopping, the cleaning, the slicing and dicing, the sauteeing and simmering.’ This was process improvement in my favorite place: the kitchen. Another Christina (a friend and quintessential mom, wife and homemaker) steered me to food guru Michael Pollan whose words resonated deeply with me: “…..the origins of the home-cooked meal, the process of cooking itself, forges traditions, expresses feelings and creates long-lasting memories.” “What we are doing counts!” My friend, Christina said. “It is important business.” I invite you to evolve, enjoy and share. Welcome!
