God grant me
to accept the things I cannot change,
to change the things I can,
to know the difference
The title of the blog really does say it all, my goal is to keep it simple while I strive to live well and love well.
These two goals encompass everything. I want to use stories to answer the question, what does that look like? What does it look like to love God with all my heart, all my soul, and all my mind? What does it look like to love my neighbor as myself? Jesus tells us that the entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:37-40)
The Eclectic Cook
The Eclectic Cook. That's me, the one who prepares food to eat using ideas, styles, and tastes from a broad and diverse range of sources. My love language is food, and I'm fairly fluent, or so I'm told.
Cook definitely fits me because I am not in any way professionally trained in this area. Just a serious love for all things food, and a deep love for people that makes me want to nurture them mind, body and soul through good food.
You won't find much original here, if anything at all, truth be told. I've collected recipes my whole life and tailored them to fit our personal preferences or what ingredients I had on hand at the time.
My motto has always been, if you feed them, they will come! Hope you find something here that makes you hungry.
