Hello and welcome to Cottage Grove House.
You will find lots of savory pie and pasta recipes here as well as a few lightly sweetened cakes and crumbles. Most everything I cook is from ingredients found in their simplest, natural organic state.
“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” -Julia Child
We all have rituals in our lives we love and by nature make them happen. Without thought or plan these moments naturally fall into place. It is a recurring event permanently marked on our minds daily calendar. My dearest ritual is dinnertime. Every evening we gather around our table to sit down, share a meal together and nourish ourselves. This tradition has become such a valued part of our lives. The conversation flows naturally and we are able to slow down and breathe. As a busy family of three nothing is more important than these little moments of sharing our thoughts and experiences and to hear the young man of the house (he’s 17) articulate and form his opinions while he is trying to make his way in the world.
