Real Food Roads is about what I’m cooking and eating at home, using seasonal, local ingredients when possible, and simple techniques that allow those ingredients to tell their tales.
It also celebrates the special foods that bring me and my family joy, including foods that some may not consider “real”. I believe moving closer to a home-cooked lifestyle should not be another source of stress and denial. Home cooking has to fit into your real life, or you won’t be able to embrace it and enjoy it. So alongside the bounty of seasonal vegetables and fruits, you will also find rainbow-colored cakes, cocktail weenies, canned chili and hot dog bun “cups”.
Food is more than what you put in your mouth, on your table, in your shopping cart. Food is culture, food is history, food is political, and food is personal. So this blog is also about all of that, and the intersection of all those roads.
Wherever you are on your road to more home cooking, you’re welcome here. Let’s go. I’ll lead the way.
