Who is “Fudging Ahead”?
When I moved out to the Seattle area in 2011, I had some idea of what to expect. After all, I had been visiting for my spring and summer breaks. Many things have changed, both since I moved here and since I started this blog. Cooking is both fun and a chore. Some days I have no idea what to make or serve until the last minute. Other times I am planning a meal a week in advance.
Stay-at-home-mom is a newish title for me. I still see myself as a (math) teacher, even if I’m not doing it formally at this point. On the internet I usually go by Aly or Alyssa. “Fudging Ahead” was the title I coined because I started with a simple fudge recipe, and soon became known as a cook/baker/food-lover. You have to eat, so why not enjoy it?
What is your blog about?
My mom always loved to cook and part of the reason I wanted to start this blog was thinking of her. She had tons of recipes that were big favorites with my family, but I don’t know most of them. Some are hidden within her many folders and binders of recipes (at least I get that habit honestly) and some were in her head. She also was the kind to make small changes that made big differences. I want to be able to document what I’ve made and what did/didn’t work for myself, my family, and anyone else willing to see it.
Some of my recipes are from me or my family, and some are from cookbooks and blogs. I will give credit where it’s due, so please go check out those folks as well. My husband’s family is Chinese so I will also be “stealing” recipes from them, too. His mom is good at describing what she does, and I just have to take notes.
Learning to cook for two has turned into learning to cook for a family of four. As our family grows, you will see more posts about our adventures in the kitchen and elsewhere. I hope to share my experiences as a way of remembering these fun challenges, and to connect with others.
You can expect posts 2-3 times a week. Some will have recipes, and some will document my life. Follow me through my food discoveries!
