Hi, I'm Susan, the writer and creator here at Simply Susan.
The name of the blog came about when my best friend reminded me of my own mantra -
keep it simple, Susan.
The purpose of the blog, in part, came about in my attempts to live out what Jesus says are the two greatest commandments,
love God, love people.
Ultimately, it's because
I needed a place for all the parts of me.
Welcome to the part of the blog dedicated to
The Eclectic Cook.
My love language is food, and I'm fairly fluent, or so I'm told. I believe that loving people by feeding them well is what some would call a divine thumbprint - it's one way to live out the greatest commandments in a very practical way.
I'm not just here for the food! I'll also talk about the many ways to extend hospitality right where you are.
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. I share long time family favorites as well as new recipes we've all enjoyed enough to include in our family cookbook.
My motto has always been, if you feed them,
they will come! Hope you find something here
that makes you hungry.
