Cooking

Below you'll find some of the delicious food that Adam & I enjoy making for our family.  Sometimes there are recipes, but often it's just photos. Adam is the great chef in the family.  That means he's the one who weighs his flour when he bakes.  I do the grunt work of churning out spaghetti and meatloaf for the masses.
