I love everything about food.  Preparing it, watching others prepare it, dinner parties, fancy brunch, fun new restaurants, grocery shopping, and on and on.  The thing is though, I’m not very good about keeping my go-to recipes all in one place.  I’ll host a baby shower and remember a quiche recipe I love.  So I have to text my sister to have her rummage for her recipes and text me a picture.  I lose my phone like every 6 months, so I don’t have the picture from the last time I asked her for it.  Same goes for Peanut Butter Bars, Cinnamon Syrup, Orange Cake, etc.  I come from a large family (10 total!) and we have so many fun family recipes that are tied up with memories and tradition.  I want to start a record of all of them.  And I want to share them!  Food is meant to be shared, and since I can’t have all of you in my Texas home all the time, I’ll share the recipes with you! I’ll also share memories associated with them all, since my entire life is basically just one whisked together memory of eating experiences.  I hope you make your own memories with some of these foods, and many others.

Bon Apetit!
