About This Blog…
I started Crumb (or Good Food, Good Wine and a Bad Girl, as it was known back then) in 2006 so that I could keep a record of all the recipes I was creating in my kitchen, both for my own sake and to share with my friends and family.
Somewhere along the way, though, I managed to stumble onto a serious passion for food, photography and writing, as well as a wonderful community of like-minded bloggers who are a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.
Most recipes you’ll find on this blog are made from scratch using fresh ingredients, though I do cheat occasionally (especially when it comes to puff pastry, because anyone who’s made it from scratch will tell you it’s a surefire path to insanity).
I also try to feature local and seasonal ingredients as much as I can – especially when most of Ontario’s growing season is at its peak in the summer and fall, which is when you’ll find recipes inspired by the wonderful ingredients we find at our local farmers’ markets or have grown (with varying degrees of success) in our little backyard vegetable patch.
Other than that, there’s very little method to my madness… this blog simply chronicles what we’ve been cooking and eating at home, which you’ll quickly learn consists of pretty much anything that won’t outrun us.
Oh, and there’s butter. Lots and lots of butter.
Here’s where you can find Crumb elsewhere on the web…
