My Kitchen

“Hey Alexa – Play Smooth Jazz”
One of my favorite pastimes is cooking. It’s one of the things I like to do to relax. It is not uncommon for me to turn on some music, pour a glass of wine, and start chopping veggies. Most of these power cooking sessions yield a delicious outcome, others never see a leftover container. I love mixing and matching new flavors and using up any of the fresh ingredients I may have left hanging around from my normal planned meals.

I Am A Seasonal Chef

I really only make chili once per year on Superbowl Sunday. Firing up the grill on the first warm day of spring is a special event. Smoothies are only tasty in the heat of summer, and the crock pot is reserved for cooler winter weather. Even certain foods are seasonal items for me. Pumpkin is reserved for fall months while strawberries scream spring. Welcome to my kitchen, weather I am cooking in the 12 SF kitchen in our RV or my kitchen at home, I am always trying new recipes. Be sure to check out some of my favorites.
