What am I writing about on my little piece of cyberspace? Well, I’m planning for it to be a lot about cooking. Oh yes, and definitely plenty of baking. However, most importantly, I am writing about understanding Judaism on my own terms.
You see, this blog only exists because I fell in love. Madly, deeply, completely in love. My husband, well, he’s Jewish. And me? I’m not. Sure, he may consider himself culturally Jewish and not religious, but it is still a world away from what I know.
When I realized I was falling in love, I knew I had to learn more about where he came from. Books did the trick to a certain extent but they didn’t teach me where I fit in. So, I started to cook.
Each new experience, any bout of internal nervousness or a happy occasion became an opportunity to make something delicious. It wasn’t on purpose, but it became my way to learn and wrestle with what I was learning.
Now, why should you care? Well, I’m assuming you found this blog for one of two main reasons, you either enjoy cooking or are in a “relationship situation” similar to mine.
If you are here because you enjoy cooking, then the recipes should do the trick. If you gravitated to this blog because you are in love, the object of your affection just happens to be Jewish, and you are feeling over your head…then, I am hoping my experiences might be of interest and comfort to you.
Whatever brought you here…welcome.
