Recipe Roundup

I grew up in a family that really appreciates food. I know a lot of people say that they love food, but as an adult, I’ve learned that our relationship with food is pretty unique. Food was (and still is) a source of celebration, of fun, an expression of curiosity and creativity. It is not unusual for my mom and I to have phone calls that revolve strictly around dissecting what we’re cooking, eating, or a recipe that we saw and for my dad to chime in his interest in eating whatever we’re cooking. I also have a running group message with my mom and my brothers that largely revolves around photos of what we’re cooking daily.

I’m lucky to have been born to a mother who loved to cook at home and encouraged/demanded that my brothers and I help out. As a result, we’re all pretty skilled in the kitchen and somewhat fearless when it comes to trying new recipes. It’s something I’m really grateful for because we have to eat every day and instead of taking that for granted, each meal becomes it’s own mini celebration. I spend quite a bit of time each week sourcing recipes that I want to try. There are a few food bloggers that I love, but I often turn to Pinterest and, lately, the NY Times for inspiration. The novelty keeps cooking and grocery shopping a joy. Here’s a small roundup that I’ve tried and loved recently. If there’s anything you’ve cooked lately that left an impression on you, I’d love if you shared a link in the comments!
