What ends up on my blog is, for one reason or another, only a fraction of the things I actually make in any given month. Most often it’s because the scones I made at 8pm can’t be photographed at that time, or I’m unwilling to let my portion of the dinner I made for my family get cold while I take it outside to take pictures. We enjoy everything that I share on here, and some things are just easier to intercept before we dig in :)
Anyways, I’m always looking for ways to infuse a bit more real life into this space, and also to share those things which I make after dark.
Enter this new monthly column, What I Cooked. At the end of each month, I’ll be sharing in list form most of the things I cooked or baked over the course of the month, along with links to the books or sites where the recipes can be found.
I hope you enjoy it. I’d also love to know what the best thing you make each month is, so leave a comment and let’s inspire each other!
