Greeting! I am so glad you came to visit. It is hard to get used to the idea that someone other than my family is actually reading these recipes. I am a self taught cook and photographer. I am a work in progress. The blog My Catholic Kitchen serves as a creative outlet for my faith and my cooking passion. I started my blog to chronicle my life. It has morphed into what it is today. I love to eat, so I learned to cook. I like to photograph food. Just like my cooking, sometimes the pictures are good and sometimes they are bad. The cast of characters in this play called my life include The Hubster, my lovable and sometimes clueless husband of almost 17 years. My 14 year old teenage daughter Monkey Girl and my neurotic rescue dog Meeka. There is also a plethera of other characters, friends and such. All of these special people are my family. I see them like ingredients of my life. They add heat, spice and a wonderful flavor, that is then seasoned into a unique dish that is called my life.
