I’ve been a foodie all my life. For most of my journalism career, I was a food and travel columnist for the Springfield News-Leader. My work has appeared all over the country, including USA Today online and Weekend.
Food and travel have always been my passions. I ate my way around the world (55 countries and counting) and savored every minute in the kitchen. (That’s me in Ushuia before heading to Antarctica) .
In fact, when I met my husband, I told him cooking was my form of prayer.
Two years ago, I became a mom and my life changed. Instead of relishing cooking, dinner became daunting (many days, not all). I still love to cook, but I just don’t have as much time. I started buying rotisserie chickens, the modern-day convenience food, and I never stopped. Now, I am obsessed. I am creating 117 recipes that start with rotisserie chicken and I’m sharing those recipes with other moms.
I hope this blog will turn into a cookbook, but if it doesn’t, then I’d still like to share my passion with other busy people. I now use rotisserie chicken to simplify so many recipes, like Mexican Lasagna (one of my favorites); or salad or Chicken Marsala.
Yes, in due time, I will share every recipe. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
