In the fall of 2018, I was busy in my kitchen prepping a dinner recipe early in the morning before my son Simon, then only one year old, slept soundly away. I’ve always loved to spend time in the kitchen and often am found going out of my way to be there, this morning was no exception. I don’t recall every detail, but most likely I hadn’t showered yet and planned on dropping my son off at school wearing a baseball cap and a baggy t-shirt and leggings. My priority this fall morning was ensuring I fed my family a quality meal at the end of the day. And this is when the idea for my recipe blog really hit me.
I’ve been working from home for over 3 years now and I am constantly re-thinking, re-writing, creating, and testing recipes that allow me to prepare and cook them in between my busy schedule. If I can prep something ahead of time and then cook it at a later time, I am all in. Some days I may prep in the mornings and then put the dish in my oven around lunch, and take out the meal as I am logging off for the day. I knew I wasn’t alone. Millions of Americans, and professionals around the globe, work from home. What about starting a food blog gearing recipes to the work from home life? What about creating a format to join the food community while also nodding to the work at home culture? And so I did.
I’ve been working hard to get this blog rolled out as my lawyer really wanted me to have my intent to use strong. 🙂 In all seriousness it also helped me finally launch the website. It is so easy to keep making changes and waiting for it to be perfect, but I have come to realize that there is also success in a work in progress blog. Please go easy on me as I’ve just started and as I am writing this, I have 5 recipes posted.
It would be a huge miss not to note that my husband has been and continues to be my biggest supporter. He is always down to try a new meal and insisted I set up a website to share my recipes. He really believes in me and I’m so grateful for that.
I don’t know what will become of this blog in all honesty. My goal is to have fun and have a format to keep creating and keep cooking. If I can share tips and tricks, perspectives and techniques, back and forth with others along the way – then this blog will be successful.
