I love to cook, and living overseas where I don’t have easy access to pre-packaged foods has caused me to learn to do a lot of things from scratch. In the past I’ve done “Food Week” here on the blog, and frequently I get asked for recipes for some of the things I make. I’m going to make an effort to start linking to those posts here so you can have a little “cook book” of sorts.
For Haiti peeps, whenever applicable or possible, I’m going to include information for Haiti specific issues, like substitutions, or where we get certain things. I know that eating well here is one of the biggest struggles for most missionaries/expats, but it doesn’t have to be. We just need to get back to basics and be okay with doing things from scratch. People often ask us what we miss from back home, and the truth is – not much! I’ve figured out how to make much of what we would eat at home, and want to share those things with you.
