On January 25, 2018 our beloved John passed away from complications caused by a virus. It was absolutely unexpected, sudden, and left our family reeling.

I have gone from learning how to be an empty nester to now, being a widow. It's a very strange place to be. I was with John my entire adult life and married to him for 24 years (our 25th wedding anniversary was this summer). Learning how to cook for one is... very different.

Food was/is love in this house. From his favourite cookies to chicken stews and apple crumble, almost everything on this blog was created in my kitchen with my family in mind. It's impossible to think of cooking only for myself, but I think it's important to continue. You will see me back here soon, creating things because it is exactly what John would have wanted. Even in grief, I still find solace in my kitchen.
