About me

Introduction I love everything about food. Cooking, eating, shopping for it, growing it and researching new recipes and ideas. I had a tendency to cook really rich foods, but at the beginning of 2008, I decided to try and clean up my eating to improve my health. This had the unfortunate side effect of making my boyfriend less of a fan of my cooking (not to mention what it did to my own happiness in the kitchen). To his credit, he loves gourmet food, but at his base he's a guy and he loves guy food. Anything with butter and red meat is sure to please. So now I am in search of that happy medium. Trying to cook healthy some of the time, while continuing to make those rich foods that satisfy like nothing else. I started Apples and Butter to chronicle my cooking exploits while I try to up the healthy (an apple a day keeps the doctor away) and tone down the butter, all while still indulging my affinity for rich food and my boyfriend's appreciation of butter and red meat.
