Viva La Dinner Party

I’ll start out by saying that this month is an open invitation to invite yourself over for dinner, seriously.

Because of its insular nature, winter has always been the perfect time of year to hunker down and clock in some serious time in the kitchen. After all, is there anything better than a warm, home-cooked meal on a snowy, winter day? Since I consider myself to be a pretty domestic gal too, you’d think that I would have been cooking up a storm all winter long, but I haven’t. I must have kept too busy sorting through all of my worldly possessions and drawing fruits and vegetables because I can probably count the times I made a home-cooked meal on one hand.

While I don’t have dreams of going to culinary school or working in the food industry again (if you can call putting out a complimentary cheese tray for passengers on a ferry, "the food industry"), I really do like cooking and I can never manage to do enough of it. This month I’m making up for lost time with Danne’s Kitchen, a month where I try out 3 new recipes a week and invite you over to join me, because really, what’s a delicious meal without someone to share it with? Plus, I’m ready to come out of my winter hibernation and hang out. I want March to be filled with good food and good friends.

Viva la dinner party! (and really, invite yourself over)

p.s. This one’s inspired by you Jess Powers. I’ve been salivating all winter long over here reading about all the wonderful food that you’ve been whipping up.
