When we were preparing to move from Ohio to South Africa, I had already collected a bookshelf full of cookbooks and cooking notebooks in our two years of marriage. I knew I couldn't bring them all with me in the airplane, so I needed a more efficient way to assemble my favorite recipes. I also wanted all of my favorite recipes in one place. So I decided, why not assemble them into a blog? Others can read and use them if they want, and its an easy way to share recipes, but most of all it gives me a record and memories for our growing repertoire of family recipes.
