For some , they are drawn to a crowd, a place,  an event or an activity,  but it seems that foodies  prefer to make the kitchen their home.  Perhaps it’s a need to gather around the hearth for food, drink and merriment.

Most food bloggers cite someone who had a influence on them and inspired them to feel at home in the kitchen.  For me, there are many numerous persons and media, (that means blogs also )  the need to make,  modify, and improve on the recipes and techniques I’ve experienced that aroused the call to the hearth.

It would be close to impossible to list everyone who contributed to my learning ……. thank you!

To the bloggers who visit this site , thanks all, glad that you have the time to read my postings.

It’s impossible to follow /interact with all the the food blogs  that interest me, but I make an effort to at least read and “like ” your postings.

Basically I started posting this blog as sort of a diary of recipes and events worth sharing and storing. Several times I have referred to the blog to search for recipes I made before, a way to access them easily without writing them down in a recipe book. Mostly all prepared in our kitchen, they are not elaborate but actual day to day and some Holiday meals.

Along the way there my be an occasional post about technical and mechanical pursuits.




FYI: blog started in November 2008

I do not receive any compensation for any of the blog postings, Blogroll, Links Photos, etc.

Recently joined American Homebrewers Association.

November 2012, the Blog Peabody Pico was started to catalog my efforts at brewing Beer. More correctly, fermentation which includes, mead and breads.

From cold brewed coffee , coffee roasting, kombucha, fresh fruit drinks, the idea is to practically be independent on beverage preparation.

    I think ‘My brother was an altar boy’ makes a great start to a song 🙂
