Welcome to Flurries of Flour!
Welcome to Flurries of Flour, a food blog that focuses on the very basics of cooking, baking and everything culinary! I’ll post about subjects ranging from knife care and skills to how to boil an egg to a primer on types of pasta, all with delicious recipes included (of course!). It’s the kind of information you need to feel confident in the kitchen! Which brings us to…
Cooking 101: Fun in the Kitchen
…The reason I started this blog in the first place.
I love to cook. I love to bake. I love throwing in a pinch of this, a scoop of that and coming up with something delicious. In other words, I love to play in the kitchen!
But not very many people I know love cooking the way I do. Many of my friends and family don’t find cooking anything more than a chore, and playing in the kitchen is kind of out of the question. They come to me when they have questions like substitutions, mixing batter for baking or the best way to making frosting.
And that’s why I started this blog—to help my friends, family, and others, learn culinary basics. Once you have the basics and a little practice, you can begin to play while you cook—you can have fun making flurries of flour all over your kitchen too!
A Little about Me
As I said before, I love to cook. I always have. I even attended culinary school for a while before I found out that loving to cook and cooking as a chef are kind of two different things (that, and I like my evenings and weekends off).
I’m also pretty passionate about a healthy lifestyle, and that includes cooking dishes for my family that are made from scratch with whole ingredients. You’ll find a lot of that information in this blog too.
What else? I’m a freelance writer, an animal lover, a rescue dog mom (you’ll see many pictures on here of our furbabies), a wife, sister, and daughter. I’m also passionate about travel, national and international.
I welcome questions and comments, and if you have questions you’d like answered, just ask in the comments or shoot me an e-mail! I’ll do my best to answer them.
So let’s get started!
