The Beginning

I have always been around people that love to cook. All of the women (and a few of the men) in my life have loved being in the kitchen concocting and creating. I have traveled extensively and have tasted flavors from around the world. Southern, Polish, Russian, Asian, Mexican...all of this has shaped me into the cook I am today.

I have always enjoyed cooking but I didn't really know how far I could take things until I moved to Denmark. I was faced with permanently being away from many of my favorite comfort foods and I just didn't know if I could cope. I started to panic about never having Waffle House or Papa John's pizza. So I started researching recipes online and making my friends and family guinea pigs.

I have discovered so much about myself and my abilities. I want to learn more and am constantly pushing myself to try new things. I do not aspire to be a world class chef. I just want to be able to create the best dishes I possibly can and hopefully help some of my fellow expats find a little taste of home.

So feel free to take my recipes and expand on them and test them. Let me know how it turns out!

Yay Angel! I am so excited to try your recipes! I think this will be a brilliant blog!
Any chance you've done some experimenting with cheesecake that you could share?

I have but I am still working on finding a good base recipe. I really need to talk to my mom and ask for hers. Maybe I should move it up on the priority list!

Let me know if you have any other requests :)
