“It is one of the greatest feelings known to humans, the feeling of being the host, of hosting people, of being the person to whom they come for food and drink and company.” – Secrets from a Caterer’s Kitchen
I love having friends over, enjoying their company and sharing food and drink together. Part of the fun is the preparation, whether it be planning and cooking the meal, decorating my home or making sure my garden is groomed during the summer and I love doing all of it. Yes, I do have friends that call me Martha!
I started a web development business (Kinetic Webs) in 1995 and the very first website I created was for recipes! I decided that if I was going to put my education to good use, a site for my passion would serve not only as a useful tool for myself but as a good example for clients. For many years it was simply a repository of recipes I loved and served as an online tool for my ease and that of family and friends. Since turning it into a blog I know I’ll never be able to recreate and photograph all those years of favorite dishes but hope to eventually get them all on this site, even without photos or a story attached…sometimes it’s just as simple as wanting to share good food.
A friend of mine gave me the book Secrets from a Caterer’s Kitchen as a gift and I love that one of the main reasons was that she thought of me when she read that line I’ve quoted above. It is what I love to do and now I can share the foods I prepare not just with my friends and family but also online through recipes and photographs.
I hope you use this site to find a new recipe for a food dish or even a cocktail from the Friday Cocktails section I started in 2011. I sincerely thank you for visiting and hope you enjoy!
