Thank you for visiting Redhead With A Fork, a blog dedicated to adventures in eating, cooking, lifestyle and consumerism. Here you’ll find musings about dining out, cooking, nifty products, noteworthy places and programs and other things I stumble upon that I’d like to share. I am a mother of three, feeding two teenage girls and a 10 year old boy, all great eaters and very opinionated. By (week)day I run the boutique public relations agency I founded, tending to clients in and beyond the Garden State. But from the moment I enter my home in the early evening, I tie on an apron and (often wearily) plot and prepare dinner. With homework overseen from afar at my stove post, I, like millions of other mothers and fathers, wear multiple hats. We have a core rotation of favorite dinner mainstays, which I’ll be sharing, and I often experiment with new recipes and twists on classics.
I cook simple preparations that are going to be enjoyed. I aim for healthy and for the most part, succeed. We are omnivores. My older daughter Isabel is the most finicky of my kids, telling me she no longer eats chicken at dinner when she subsists on grilled chicken wraps for lunch. Cooking for kids can be among life’s least rewarding experiences at times. But on those occasions when everyone is happily eating around the table and the kids are getting along, I know that I am blessed and feel so appreciative of life, family and the dinner gathering.
Because my time is limited on evenings and weekends (homework, kids’ sports events, spending time with my kids, food shopping, yoga, dog walking and the occasional round of golf), I will focus here on things that I think and hope will be of value to you. Things as mundane as good organizing tools for the kitchen or a nifty shortcut to a satisfying weeknight meal will be presented.
I welcome hearing from you. If you wish to submit a review idea, please email me at email@example.com. Thank you for reading this blog and sharing it with others you think may enjoy.
