About this blog

Cook fearlesslyFood. We all need it. We all love it. Some  of us more than others. I happen to be one of the “more than others.”

This blog is dedicated to  sharing my obsession with recipes that “hit people in their comfort zone.” I am not a chef, but I  love bringing that something special to everyday, home style meals so they not only taste good but look good too.  You know what they say, “presentation is 90% of sales so sell it on a lovely plate, beautiful bowl, grand goblet or marvelous martini glass.

The recipes on this blog are simple. Most of them are no great uncovered secret or complicated concoction. Many are recipes you’ve  known, have loved and perhaps simply forgotten. Here, I help you to remember and perhaps add a few extra touches to make them memorable. And many of them are made with ingredients you already have in your pantry or kitchen. Sometime a simple “pantry sweep” (as I call it)  of assembling ingredients you already can be the catalyst for your culinary creativity. Heck – I’ve done my best work in these moments and  that “on-the-fly” creation became a family favorite.

In fair disclosure, I won’t just stop there. From time-to-time there will be a few surprises too, giving you a glimpse into my obsession of all things culinary from pie pastry to pastry blenders –   and even a few food, product, cookbook and kitchen gadget reviews including occasional interviews with fellow foodies . . .  because I just can’t help myself.

veronicaThanks for stopping and by all means darling remember to cook fearlessly, eat well – cin cin!

  1. Veronica,
    Looking at your entire blog, this is something every cook can relate to…even me, who is not all that great in the kitchen.
    Your recipes are understandable, fresh, and creative without unnecessary showmanship.
    It was a honor and pleasure meeting you in person. I could immediately feel your contagious passion for family, friendship, and the enjoyment of life through food.
    Sincerely,
    Chris P.
