My sons are convinced my favorite food is scrambled eggs. They are both right and wrong. It is my go-to meal since I am one of those moms who rushes in at the end of a long day and thinks, “Oh, good God. Dinner again?” I marvel at folks with the wherewithal to defrost something ahead of time or use a slow cooker. I don’t love scrambled eggs but I can make them when all of a sudden a meal has ambushed me.

I actually love cooking. I love that it is a tangible way for me to love other people and myself. If I were to ever make a cookbook it would be called something along the lines of “The path of least resistance cookbook” and it would involve lots of soup and simple meals and traditions that work their ways into the landscape of a family.

I have been blessed to also always be surrounded by food lovers… amazing cooks and thoughtful friends. We take care of each other in so many ways… food is one of the best.

I am also thrilled to announce the launch of a sister site for Mamalode (or maybe a grandmother site since it is so cozy and yummy) Mamanomnom where we can Mamalode up the food world—which is to say make it honest, loving, kind, beautiful and delicious. Head on over and SUBMIT your recipes, stories and food tricks. As you come across Mamalode-worthy food in your social feeds, hash tag #mamanomnom. Share and contribute – Mamanomnom is a resource for and by YOU.

Dig in. Have seconds and thirds. I will be there with my soup and yes, scrambled eggs.
