Welcome, dear reader, to Devour. In this space I will share with you my culinary and literary journey as I expand my mind (and my stomach…) by reading fabulous books and cooking delectable food. For me, a good story and a satisfying meal are two of life’s greatest pleasures. All it takes to make be sublimely happy is a good book, a cup of strong coffee – or wine, depending on the time of day – and something delicious close at hand.
I am a voracious reader. I almost named this blog “Voracious,” because the rate at which I consume books verges on gluttony. I read a little bit of everything and am always looking for recommendations. My “to read” pile is constantly growing, but I am not daunted! The more I read, the more I have to share with you.
I am not a trained chef or cook. Excepting 7th grade Home Ec. class, I have been trained solely by my mother, my ever-growing library of cookbooks, Food Network, and some good old fashioned trial-and-error. My Better Half has bravely volunteered to sample everything, successes and failures alike. I will share some of his (and my) particular favourites to get us started.
And so, dear reader, I do hope you return, and I look forward to getting to know you.
