The Crafty Fork
2012 is upon us, and one of my resolutions was to do less. So why did I start a new blog, The Crafty Fork?
Well, I cook every day. And I love to cook!
Growing up, we always ate at home, and I’d say 90% of the meals my parents made were entirely “from scratch.” Sure on occasion we ate at restaurants, but maybe only once a month. In addition to being homemade, our meals were rounded: there was always a protein, some carbs, and at least one vegetable. And dinner was always at the table, with everyone present. Always. We lived in Maine and had a vegetable garden, bought foods “in season,” and ordered our Thanksgiving turkeys from a local family farm.
The current trend in local, organic, artisan food is very near and dear to me. I’ve been living this way my whole life! (Maybe not as a college student, when bagels, peanut butter, and frozen pizza were my staples… but I digress…) Now that I have a family of my own, and talk with other parents a lot, I am constantly sharing my recipes and “tricks” to get my kid to eat healthily. (hint: there are no tricks! Just eat what you should eat, and the kids will too).
Come visit to learn how to make amazing, healthy food.
