Hungry for more
You know that feeling when you escape into a book so captivating, the world around you disappears? Where you rush home from work, cozy up by the fire, and know with certainty that you won’t get up until you reach the last page? That’s kind of where I’m at right now. I’m hanging onto every moment of this journey, waiting to see what comes next.
What started as a way to pass time while my kids were in school turned into — I’m not sure what else to call this — an obsession. Photography and food styling suddenly occupied my thoughts day and night. I began checking out photography books from the library and writing down recipe ideas on coffee shop napkins, receipts I found in my car, anything I could grab when inspiration struck.
But why food? Simple: food is life.
Beyond that, it really comes down to pursuing a passion. Most of my favorite moments with loved ones, as I recall, take place around a table. Sharing stories, laughing a little too loud, and talking about our next meal before we’ve cleared our plates. I want to create more of those moments, and I want them to be delicious.
I want you to come for the food, but stay for the stories. The ones where I try to put into words how the dishes nearest and dearest to my heart are more about memories than flavors.
I want this to be a place that inspires meals and menus.
Walking a new path requires an investment larger than money. If I’m going to devote my time to learning a new skill, it needs to push me, make me stronger, and give me purpose. This project — Well Seasoned — it’s already moving me forward.
Thank you for coming along on this journey. I hope you leave inspired, curious, and hungry for more.
