Pood forn.

It's been pretty transparent on this blog how much I love cooking and trying new recipes.  I'm not sure how or when it happened, but cooking has evolved into a huge form of stress relief for me.  After a long day at work, bickering with coworkers or just a cranky day, there are few things I crave more than fresh produce and my skillet.   I adore pursuing food blogs/Pinterest for hours while noting new ingredients, fun techniques and flavor combinations. I will be talking more about diet and some changes I've decided to make sometime next week, but in the meantime, I have to share my latest food blog crush, Stonesoup.  Ever since I was a little kid, I remember hovering close to my mom while she would prepare her famous Thanksgiving stuffing.  I  adore the Food Network and watching the chefs chop the food is undeniably my favorite part.  Not only are Stonesoup's recipes easy to follow along with and her ingredients simple, but she has VIDEOS!  Videos, people!  I can watch over and over her swift and sharp knife cuts.  Score!  I also love how with each recipe she posts, she has different alternative methods of cooking for gluten-free, vegetarians or vegans.

Anyhoodle, if you are ever in a pinch for a quick and simple dinner, I'd strongly suggest heading to see what's new at Stonesoup.  

p.s. Figure out the blog title yourself.


  1. Oooh I will definately have a look at that site. I also find cooking a huge 'letting-hair-down' occasion. Although I only get time to do it on my days off due to my long work hours. But it makes so much more special :-)


    1. I'd love to hear that you think of the site! Her voice is so enchanting and calm in all of the videos, too. You are spot on - cooking IS such a letting-hair-down vibe! I hope you have a great week!
