Welcome to My Delicious Blog! I love to cook AND eat. My cooking is inspired by my coastal lifestyle, my New England roots, and seasonal/whole foods available in my area. Laurie Colwin once wrote: “No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past and the advice and menus of cooks present.” As a kid, I spent a lot of time in kitchens of loved ones, eating or simply watching them in action. They all influenced me, especially my French Canadian grandmother. Meat pie, pork roast with brown potatoes, chorizo and peppers, clam boil, baked beans and date squares were some of her best dishes, and I remember them all.
My husband Brendan is an artist. We live in southwest Florida, work from home, and love to fish. While fishing, tasty snacks are critical, so I’m always ready. Our annual ‘brunch on the boat’ garners odd looks from anglers who see our quiche, fruit, hot coffee and vase of flowers, but I think that when you’re not catching fish, you should have fun!
You’ll find lots of seafood dishes here, along with salads, sides and desserts. My “Field Trip Fridays” highlight places that inspire me, and hopefully you, too! Oh, and be sure to check out my flour sack towels, tote bags and face masks — designed and printed in our very own studio 🙂
