Welcome to Lizzie's Apron!
I love food. It's my love language. Food makes me happy along with my passion for my husband, my children, and photography. (and some design projects here and there.)
My daughter, whose nickname is Lizzie, loves to cook. From an early age, I found when we cooked together, she would open up in so many ways. Talking, laughing, sharing. As she's grew older, keeping her hands busy while cooking opened a door to her little mind. I could see her thoughts and feelings as she stirred, measured, and cooked.
So many times, she would say to me, "mommy, when I grow up, will you give me all your recipes?" And so this blog was born as way to keep the memories of our cooking adventures and save the recipes she loves so much with the hopes of her sharing with her own family one day...and share a story or two along the way.
What a gift my daughter and son are. They have changed my life in so many ways and I pray I am able to teach them how to navigate through this crazy world we live in.
"Teach your children everything you know. And if you must, use words."
(Many of the beginning recipes are from a blog I co-wrote with my dear friend. Rather than letting them get lost in webspace, I have moved them here to Lizzie's Apron. They are pretty good and family favorites! You can find lots of recipes as well as projects created over the past 2 years at twofriendstwocities.com. Enjoy!)
