In My Own Words is a place for me to get out my thoughts and ideas on everything from cooking with kids to creating a kitchen of pantry staples. As much as I love to share my recipes I also have a few other blog posts relating to being a home cook that are just as useful or valuable but somehow get lost in the shuffle. Because of that I decided to create a home for them here on this page so that they are easier to find. I hope that you enjoy these posts just as much as the recipes and tips on this site. Enjoy!
