I really fell in love with cooking about eight years ago. I grew up on Twinkies, Apple Jacks, frozen Chicken Pot Pies and honestly it was a massive revelation that you could make a pie crust ~ not just buy it in the freezer section at the market. My passion is to make everything from scratch, I love that whole foods taste amazing now, not only to me but to my husband and two children. I love that they are growing up knowing where their food comes from, exploring different cultures through food and travel and that they will pass that on to the next generation too. I share love through food, I desire to bless others and make them feel loved, warm and welcome in our home and with our family. I long to grow in my culinary skills ~ and Food52, you are a beautiful leap in that direction! Thank you so much!
