A few years ago Kristin and I decided that it was time for Rachel to impart a bit of her Greek cooking wisdom on us and teach us how to make dolmas. That experience is the first time I can remember, as an adult, cooking with girlfriends. It was such a fun afternoon sitting in Rachel's sunny kitchen, repeatedly folding seasoned rice into grape leaves while we solved all the world's problems. Or maybe we discussed the antics of Hollywood celebrities. I forget which. Regardless, it made what could have been a very mundane task so enjoyable, and cooking with girlfriends has been on my list of favorite things ever since.
When I can't actually cook with them, I still enjoy using their recipes.
This is a blog to share the recipes we make for and with each other, and the stories that go along with them.
