I’m Kelly. My daughter is Chloe. My mom is Christine. All of us are vegetarians (although two of us make rare exceptions for fish). We love food and we love cooking! Well, Chloe loves baking (and we love that she loves that). My mom likes meals that don’t take a lot of money to make. I have trained in raw food preparation, so you’ll see some of that from me. But I like making just about anything. The kitchen is where I create- I’m not an artist anywhere else in my life, so it feels very good to get in the kitchen! This is our multi-generational food blog- where all of three of us (and, we hope, other family members and friends) will be posting favorite family recipes, new recipes that happened to turn out well (we’ll hide the messes and pretend they never happened), and in general, our love of good and pretty food. Food that feeds us in a real and deep way. Food that reflects our many tastes, talents, and addictions (chocolate, anyone?).
The name Apron In The Window came about because a year or so ago, as I was frantically trying to find a curtain for our oddly-shaped kitchen window (frantic because we had 24 hours notice that the 8-foot high fence between us and our neighbors was coming down, and code prevented it from being replaced with anything taller than a 6-foot fence, therefore, loss of privacy was imminent), I came across a favorite apron. And I thought, why not? A stopgap measure, a temporary solution. And we loved it (and I have tendencies toward laziness), so it remains to this day.
We would love to have you walk alongside us on these pages. We hope you won’t get dizzy from going from muffins to green juices to red velvet cake to homemade bread to detoxing soups. We like it all! And we are looking forward to sharing our kitchen creations with you! Bear with us while we figure out the basics – like how to post pictures (heck, how to take pictures) and make the posts clear and interesting for you. We hope to hear from you, too!Chloe and Kelly at the “Cinderella Castle” in Fussen, Germany, 2009
