Welcome to 'At Home In the Kitchen', my latest effort to bring all of you who love to enjoy good food at home back into the kitchen. As many people allowed themselves to get bogged down with work and with the demanding commitments that come with raising children these days, enjoying a home-cooked meal was becoming a thing of the past. Thanks to the increased availability of more and more diverse foods available in our markets and to the ever-increasing popularity of the Food Network, cooking has become en vogue once again. There are a few of us out there who never abandoned our stoves and cookbooks, such as myself; which is why I will be writing regularly to help those of you who harbor a spark of culinary interest hindered by trepidation to take on that apparently intimidating task of preparing dinner. Future articles will touch on helpful topics such as buying kitchen items, planning menus and ingredient shopping; as well as seasonal ideas on how to get the most out of the flavors that the season has to offer. I will also feature the occasional article suggesting seasonal decorative ideas for your home and/or garden, so that your environment will feel inviting when you come home to come face to face with your kitchen. This is not a recipe blog, I am in the process of writing a cookbook for that. I will however share just a few simple recipe ideas here and there along the way. The purpose of this blog is to give you some tips and inspiration so that you too can feel at home in the kitchen. My first topic will be posted in a few days, so be sure to check back soon.
