In the Beginning

I started this blog when my children were little. It was a convenient way to share some of their stories and to keep family and friends up-to-date with our lives. Now they’ve gotten older and they aren’t interested in having their cute conversations splashed all over the internet. I’m really not sure anymore what the purpose of this blog is.

But I do enjoy blogging. I’ve missed it. I may or may not figure out what to do with Thoughts From the Green Room.

Until then…. I’ve started a new blog. There’s a point to it. A beginning and an end. If I post twice a week, the blog should be alive for about two years. And who knows what might happen along the way.

Check it out. Feel free to follow it and like and/or comment on the posts.

ps – It’s a cooking blog and I’m not making all the recipes public. But I’m always happy to share my recipes with friends. So if you love something you see… all you have to do is ask.

Ever since I watched Julie & Julia, I’ve loved the idea of cooking through a cookbook. It’s a fun thought- but the struggle lies in finding a cookbook that I’m willing to commit to. Enter a weekend retreat in Columbus, Ohio.

I made a light comment to my friend about cooking through this cookbook and she said, “Yeah, and you could blog about it.”

Like I need another blog.

Or another commitment in my life.

But I am burned out on feeding people, my family included. I could use some motivation to prepare better…

About ruthie.voth

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.

    Oh, oh, oh, I so wish we lived closer to each other, Ruthie! What a great idea to eat your way through the cookbook! What a delight to share a meal with you recently. Wish we could sup together more often. 🙂
