In my kitchen, I'll travel the world.

One area of my life that I haven't learned to love again after becoming a mom is cooking. I really like(d) to cook. But then the arrow came along, and once we cleared out our freezer of the meals we had stocked up and friends stopped bringing food by, the chore of getting dinner on the table each night has remained just that for me--a chore.

My mom is going to do WHAT?!
So in 2011, I'm going to try to get my cooking mojo back. And what better way than to go on a culinary adventure around the world, via my own pots and pans? I may not get to it every week, but I hope at least once a month to share a recipe and its connection to travel here with you. Warning: I'm no Emeril Lagasse--the only thing that goes BAM! in my kitchen is the arrow, banging on tupperware. So this won't exactly be gourmet, fancy stuff. I'm just hopeful that it will taste good.

I hope you'll help me along the way. Do you have a favorite recipe that best represents where you live? Share it with me! Have you tried a dish on a trip that you'd like to see me make? Let me know! (If not, I'll have to put you to work dicing up an onion or washing dishes. And no one wants to do that.) I'll be posting my kitchen adventures on Wednesdays as part of the Wanderfood Wednesdays link-up at Wanderlust and Lipstick. If you blog and want to join in the fun in your own virtual kitchen, let's meet there on Wednesdays, ok? I'd love to know what's cooking in your kitchen!
