From April 17, 2010 through April 16, 2011 I lived a year of inconvenience. My passion for food drove me to take on a challenge… a culinary experience of a lifetime one might say… to live without the convenience of convenience foods for one entire year. I cooked most all of my meals from scratch, shopping primarily the fresh departments of my co-op, learning new skills and techniques along the way. The challenge for me wasn’t so much the cooking, but the added responsibilities of keeping three meals on our table while at the same time meeting my very full schedule and work obligations.
I’ve enjoyed blogging about my experience and meeting the countless numbers of foodies along the way who where willing to share their success and love for food with me. I’m now living the year after the year and continuing to learn more about myself and what I value most about my time in the kitchen – the love that comes with every bite!
