After years of blogging about what I was cooking to feed my loved ones, I realized my blog wasn’t big enough to hold the work I wanted to do.
I wanted a place where I could share recipes for all kinds of home cooks, including people who wanted to be home cooks but weren’t sure they could do it.
I wanted a place where I could share recipes using local, seasonal ingredients, and also talk about why many people don’t have access to them.
I wanted a place where I could share my excitement about exploring my culinary heritage, and experimenting with ingredients that were new to me, and also talk about how much of our shared food history in the United States has only been possible through immigration and forced relocation.
I wanted a place where I could help feed hungry people by supporting organizations that are working to end food insecurity, and also write about and share the work of others who want to feed hungry people.
So I started this website. It’s definitely still a work in progress, but it’s good enough to share. I will be adding more: more recipes, more blog posts, more fundraisers, more ideas. Please help me spread the word, and share with anyone you think would like a place like this.
So, let’s see where this goes. Thanks for joining me in my kitchen. I want this to be a place where all home cooks feel welcome, no matter their experience. I want this to be a place where we can support each others’ home cooking adventures. Most importantly, I want this to be a place where we can work together to feed hungry people, no matter who or why or where they are. Let’s cook.
