Just over a year ago I was forced to re-invent myself. Out of work for the first time in forty years and at an emotional crossroads I needed to take a look at where I was going. Having reached a more interesting age, I felt that the direction I needed to go in should involve something I felt passionate about. I loved to cook and over the years I had developed a knack for writing about the everyday occurrences in my life. That’s how Mama D’s Kitchen was born.
I’ve learned a lot over the year. Some things were revelations, others were common sense, and there were more than a handful of DUH?!? moments. I set up a web site with a little help from my friends. I love sharing my recipes and my process and I’ve learned that some recipes are much better in my head than on a plate, but most of the time simple ingredients combined with love can create something wonderful.
As I begin my second year, I’m looking forward to more cooking and more writing of course, and I’m beginning to explore the direction to go that will lead to my passion becoming my business. I hope that you’ll join me as I continue to cook and write. and follow my adventures as I cook with love. Mama D
