Just about any occasion sends me to the kitchen to create. My pots and pans are my culinary canvas. I cook dinners for friends' birthdays, for holidays, and three times a day for my family.
My hope is that my descriptions and photos will inspire you to get out to the farmers markets or down an aisle at the grocery store that intimidates you, try some new ingredients, and get crazy with the herbs and spices!

Some Birthday Love for My Love's Birthday
Fourteen years ago I took my new boyfriend on a camping trip for his birthday. Having known him for less than two months, when we woke up on the bank of the river on the morning of his birthday, he announced to me that we were going to be married one day. [Okay, those weren't his exact words, but that was the gist of it.] I laughed, nervously, at him and jumped in the river. On our wedding day, he asked if I remembered what he said at Deep Creek. And he said, "All I have to say is 'Ha, told you.'" Happy birthday, Jake!
Life with the Manns is always an adventure. We like it like that. So, this morning, I decided to whip up a less-than-typical birthday feast. Recipes to come.
