I am a retired museum curator who was simply looking for something new to do when I decided to start this blog. I was tired of sitting around the house all day, and I think I was starting to drive my wife slightly crazy. Not that she would ever admit that. I am also blessed with a large family that lives nearby so we are frequently getting together to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or to simply enjoy a delicious meal together. Now that I’m no longer working I’m in charge of planning these get togethers and this includes the cooking. I thought that this blog would be a great place to write about working in a museum, along with sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Since I’m new to cooking I look forward to reading any helpful tips, and I also plan on sharing any that I find online.
