Some people LOVE cooking and some people HATE it. But most of us can agree that food is a vital part of our lives and we all love GOOD food! Becky and I grew up in a busy family of 3 girls who played every sport under the sun, so we definitely ate our fair share of fast food and frozen meals…but as we grew older, we realized how important it is to understand where food comes from and how to make it. (Almost equally as important that it tastes DELICIOUS!) I’m now also experimenting in the paleo world (no sugar, dairy, or gluten or a combo of two) so will also share some of those recipes as well!
“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good
food from fresh ingredients.”
~ Julia Child
We are constantly trying new recipes and will update the blog as we try new tricks, but this list is a compilation of our recipes that we’ve gathered over the years from family, friends, cooking blogs, and pure experiment. We promise that we will only post recipes we have personally tasted and tried cooking ourselves – ultimately giving it the “WOW THIS IS FANTASTIC” Marlowe Lane stamp of approval.
P.S. For those of you who fall into the “I don’t love to cook” category, I think you will be surprised at how easy most of these are to make and we promise to try to make it as easy as possible on you! (We mentioned we aren’t professionals right?! Like who the heck knew it took so much to “meringue” a pie?!)
“A recipe has no soul, you as the cook must bring soul to the recipe.”
– Thomas Keller
YOU ultimately create the final product of any recipes so feel free to experiment and let us know what works! The kitchen is such an important room in our house. It is where we gather to share stories and build relationships, and the fact that we are also fortunate enough to be able to share food together just makes it something we try to relish.
We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we do!
