Hi there, and welcome to Kooky Carol’s Kitchen Concoctions!
Yes, that’s me with the truck – more evidence that the name Kooky Carol isn’t just a blog name, it’s also a good description of me 🙂
Growing up in Annapolis Maryland with four sisters and a brother probably had a lot to do with how I am…
…as kids, we spent our summers swimming, fishing and chicken-necking for blue crabs in the clear waters of Back Creek. When the winter winds brought ice to the creek, we would just trade our cane poles for ice skates and chase each other around for hours.
Growing up as part of a large family meant that there was always something going on in our lives. Mealtime, and the preparations for it, were a predictable reason for everyone to put their distractions on hold and come together for “family time”.
Mom and Dad made sure that happened as much as possible.
Let me introduce Mom and Dad…
My mom was an excellent cook and dad always told her, “The President didn’t have a finer dinner tonight”. She was the type of mom that would have homemade donuts and hot chocolate waiting for us when we came in from the cold.
I have been excited about food and cooking for as long as I can remember, and I have mom and dad to thank for that.
This apple didn’t fall far from the tree after all, and I’m excited about the opportunity to share some recipes, laughs, adventures with you as we explore our kooky world together.
Keep cooking, and keep Kooky, my friends!
