As the nights creep earlier and earlier, I find myself cooking more hearty meals. Comfort foods, you might say. Soups, stews, roasted potatoes, pies. I just learned to make caramel sauce (yum!).

Pie - by Kitchen Wench

I’m not the most amazing chef, but who cares? I make good food and often get to share it with friends and loved ones. Even when I’m dining solo, it feels good to take care of myself by making a good meal and lighting a candle to eat it by.

I’m thankful for my grandmothers, who have both taught me a lot about cooking and baking. My mother and father have also taught me a lot, and lately it’s my brother and boyfriend who have brought new skills to my kitchen counter. I am so thankful for the opportunity to share time and food with my family and friends.

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!
