Food Travel

Iwould love to be able to travel the world and become a travel writer but I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. I think there are some folks out there, such as travel foodie’s like Chantal Royer,¬†that have cornered the market on that one! But I can blog about my little jaunts, oh yes I can! Of course my posts are mostly food travel based. So if you are anywhere near any of the places I write about, drop in on them and say, “Big Red Kitchen sent me.” And they will say, “Who?”

    Robin Sue, Hi. I came across your website from a pin on Pintrest. I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your stories and recipies. I made some chocolate peanut butter bars this morning and they are wonderful. I was reading your story under the Tea and Toast recipe. It made me stop and realize that I need to relax and enjoy the precious time I have with my 18 month old. Time is flying by and I need to stop and smell the roses. I also wanted to mention that I read your story about your CrossFit journey. I am really excited to hear how it has changed your life and made such an impact on you. I am also going through a finess journey. It was encouraging to hear that sometimes we lose inches before we notice a difference on the scale. Right now, I guess you could say that is where I am at. I am so glad I came across Big Red Kitchen today. I will be making more recipes whenever time allows. They all look so tasty. Thanks for sharing yourself and your food ideas! Keep up the good work and may God continue to bless you and your family.

      Hi Sharon,
      Yes enjoy your baby- someone said the days are long but the years are short. That is so true, the days with a baby can feel so long and tiresome at time, but here I am looking at my 15 year old thinking- where did the time go. Very hard to swallow! Good for you on your fitness journey- stick with it and have fun. Don’t look at numbers but go with how you feel, your new energy levels, glowing skin, and sense of well-being. Thanks for dropping by and telling me about yourself!
