When I got married several years ago, I was thrilled with the prospect of creating beautiful, nutritious meals on a daily basis for my adoring husband. (Is anyone else laughing with me?) Within a few months, the glow was gone and I was exasperated trying to figure out what to fix for dinner every single day. Adding three kids to the mix has only made meal time more of a challenge for me. The biggest problem is that I have always loved cooking and trying new things, (within reason), and I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I enjoy testing my culinary abilities and learning new ways and techniques in the kitchen. Heading along in my comfortable little rut was not feeding my need to explore. So, I decided to do something about it.
As I find new and interesting recipes, I add them to a little "Try It Out" folder on my internet favorites. And, eventually, they will end up here. I hope that this little corner of the internet will inspire you to expand beyond your comfort-food zone. Come cook with me in My Little Red Kitchen!
