The cook is in!

Welcome!  While Wear the Apron gets up and running, I’ll just say a quick hello.  I’m Elizabeth, a home-cook, sometimes wanna-be chef, who loves to make the food I eat.  I cook and bake from a diverse collection of recipes and homemade concoctions—from cornmeal-crusted fried green tomatoes to Indian curries, good-for-you pastas and scrumptious desserts.  I’ll try anything once, and sometimes twice, and I have a knack for choosing tasty dishes that will satisfy for dinner and lunch the next day.

We’re in the last days of summer here in Chicago, which is keeping me busy.  Between the weekly CSA box, our local farmers markets and our tiny vegetable plot in the city park, the fridge is always full, and we’re eating in nearly every night.  It’s been wonderful, and as you read WTA, you’ll get to know my passion for fresh, delicious and healthy food.

The posts may be a little slow at first, but I’ll aim to post one to two recipes a week.  Stay in touch, and I promise, you’ll want to get back to the kitchen too!

    Congrats on the very professional sounding narration. You could be Julie!! The photos are fabulous and inviting. I’m going to make the chocolate zucchini bread this weekend. What a team you two make! Keep up the good work. Love, Mom

    Liz, This is very nice, I didn’t realize you were such a cook. The recipes look delicious and the pictures show the dishes off well. My advise is keep it simple until you have it up and running for awhile. Your Mom mentioned Julie, remember she talked about the failures too. Some nights things just don’t come out as you expect them to.

    Good Luck, Mary K.

    Awesome design Liz! I love it and can’t wait to make both the tart and fruit and nut bars above! Keep up the delicious work! <3

    I’ll never cook any of it, but I’d love to taste it.

    I’m so impressed! Yummy sounding dishes and gorgeous photography—you girls make a great team. Liz, how about sharing the recipe for the lightened-up shrimp and grits you mentioned?
