FEAR. It is amazing what we allow this four letter word to do in our lives. We allow it to make decisions for us. We allow it to hold us back in many areas of our lives. We allow it to control us.
I am so excited to start this cooking blog. It has been a thought in my mind for several months. Strangely enough, I have been afraid to start it. Afraid that no one will like it, afraid that I'm not a good enough cook, and the list goes on! I don't know how many times I have told myself, "this is a dumb idea - there are so many better cooks out there than me..."
Well...that is true. There are definitely many many MANY better cooks and chefs out there, but the bottom line is , I love to cook! And I want to share my favorite recipes, disasters, & stories with anyone who wants to read them. My main vision is to create a place to come and find simple, delicious recipes that don't break the budget!
So many of us have incredible talents and dreams hidden by fear, insecurity, & excuses, when all we have to is shove fear out of the way and move forward. It is easier than we build it up to be. Moving forward can include failure, disasters, train wrecks, & tears, but at least we are moving forward and not living life stagnant, which can mean inactive, sluggish, or dull! Are you catching my drift? I encourage you to look and see if fear, insecurity, or excuses may be holding you back from something, anything! Live life to it's fullest!

Gabbi!!!!! LOVE this blog! What a good idea! Chris does most of the cooking in our house (because he loves it and is good at it, but I simply just don't know how to cook!). I look forward to learning from you so that I can surprise my hubbs with some awesome meals and show him I am putting in the effort to learn :).

Congratulations Gabbi! Your blog looks like a lot of fun and the photos are amazing. I learned to cook starting at age 8, and it has always been one of the biggest joys in my life. Even though I now only have myself to cook for, I still enjoy everything being prepared perfectly, arranged attractively and eaten at the table. A beautiful meal made with love, is a treasure - a gift we give ourselves and our loved ones. Thanks for sharing!

I love your blog! So glad you started it - you're an awesome cook. Um, how many servings of green bean casserole did I have on Thanksgiving. No don't answer that. You are a wonderful, fun friend, and an amazing wifey to your man. Love you!
