My name is Lindsay and I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to check out my blog. While my love of writing about the funny things my kids do and say was the first reason that I decided to do this, I’m equally excited to share with you the many other things that I enjoy. Having our two kids – Luke (5) & Madeleine (2) – has changed and enriched life for my husband, Michael, and me over the past 5 years. Our lives will soon be a bit more complicated as we are to embark on renovating our tiny beach bungalow. The walls of this 2-bedroom, 1-bath home have begun to shrink in on us as our kids have grown and aquired lots of STUFF! (Their wardrobes are bigger than mine.) I know there will be many challenges ahead, as well as benefits, during the next year (or two, or three) and sharing them with you will be a sort of therapy for me.
Before I was married, I worked as a professional pastry chef. Through this career I met many interesting people and learned so much about food, from dessert and beyond. Living close to Manhattan allows us to enjoy wonderful restaurants anytime we want. Ok, that’s not true. But on the rare occasion that we do get a babysitter, we head to the city as fast as humanly possible and I will be sure to post any restaurants worth a visit. I’ll be sharing with you recipes that I’ve used over and over again, as well as experimental recipes that hopefully taste as delicious as they look in the recipe books. I love when Luke helps out in the kitchen, even though the finished product isn’t always perfect. It’s just fun to watch him laugh and get flour everywhere.
Please know there will be many days when I just have to vent about something frustrating. But those are the days I learn from the most. Hey, I’m not perfect.
