Who’s Dining Chez Nous?

the Husband and me
the Husband and me

My name is Varina.

Things I like: cooking meals and eating them (especially if they include onions, cheese, or cilantro, not necessarily in the same dish).

Things I don’t like: staring blankly at the fridge wondering what to make (or cleaning up).

This blog will help me with the planning part, listing the successes, the tweaks, and from where I adapted a recipe (see my first post, for even more background details).  In general, everything on here will be relatively healthy (let’s agree to interpret “relatively” loosely), simple to make, and accessible to someone who is not a chef and probably never will be.  Because let’s be honest, working a full time office job, with some unpredictable hours, it won’t be too often I’ll manage to julienne any vegetables.

The cleaning part?  Leaving that to the Husband…

  1. Varina…..Yummmmmm. Love your recipes and fun writing! , but leaving the cleaning to the hubby? Perhaps a fair trade off, which Laurie and I have practiced for years. I don’t like it, but I love her cooking and need to eat!


  2. Hi Varina! Happy to have found your blog! I love the layout, the style the content…everything! I’ve read some of your posts and I can’t wait to read more and try your recipes! Looking forward to following you 🙂
