I’m Karen and I cook. I’m a photographer. I enjoy combining those two to create this blog.
You’ll notice that I’m often cooking huge amounts of food. There are two reasons for that.
First, I am often still cooking for a crowd. At least once a week we have a group of friends over for music and dinner. The band is a lot of fun and I will feed them anytime as long as I get to listen to them play while I cook.
The other is simply out of habit. With five kids, I got used to cooking in bulk. As they’ve grown and some have flown the coop, I don’t always have to cook for seven anymore but old habits die hard. At least we enjoy the leftovers.
I really do enjoy cooking but mostly I enjoy eating. There are plenty of nights that I’m simply not in the mood and having to put something on the table feels more like an obligation than anything else. That’s when we do takeout and those leftovers come in handy!
