Several months after moving to the California central coast this blog was created. It began, not originally as a food blog, but as a compilation of thoughts and experiences…a.k.a. the “partial ingredients” of life. Soon I realized that cooking was becoming a bigger and bigger part of my life and the recipes eventually became the thoughts and experiences. Every time I try a recipe it develops a mind of its own and turns into something new. I created this blog to share and catalog these fun experiments with food, flavor and soaps!
