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.
Best wishes on your new adventure! I adore chicken! (And looking forward to that cookbook!)
Thank you for your ongoing kindness! I appreciate it. I am having a wonderful time. Bless you, too
Where do you buy the soy vay in springfield I live in Joplin and none of the stores have it here
Harter House sells it. I always buy it there. I THINK the Walmart Neighborhood market on E. Sunshine has it, too. But Harter House always has it and that’s a local store, so I try to buy from there. I will have another recipe this week using that sauce. It’s so AWESOME
Interesting idea! I don’t think I would be able to use that much rotisserie chicken in my cooking, as much as I love a good one now and then. I admire your persistence! 🙂
Thank you. I think my husband wishes I didn’t start this either. He’s had enough rotisserie chicken to last him a lifetime. But they are so convenient and healthier than many other alternatives.
Well, as long as there are some other recipes I guess it’s not too bad! 🙂
“Cooking as a form of prayer” – now that’s an excellent description.
Thank you! I really feel that way. I am at peace in the kitchen.
Cheers to you for that … and gotta love anyone who cherishes rotisserie chicken and wine.
Rotisserie chicken will eventually get old. Wine never does.:) Cheers back to you
