I am really intrigued by international food so that was definitely the right choice for me at the time. I've since started cooking from books I read with my daughter (this past spring we read four Mary Poppins books and made Victoria Sponge because Poppins loves sponge). I hope to do more of this. :)(less)

I’ve been rolling memories of this blog around in my head, like a loose tooth.

I reminisce late at night, when I can’t sleep. Ironically, this is how our adventure began more than seven years ago: Restless, at midnight. I’ll always remember waking Keith in the middle of that brittle February night to tell him I wanted to cook every country. And – love him – he agreed.

“Happiness is not a destination: Being happy takes constant weeding, a tending of emotions and circumstances as they arise. There’s no happily ever after, or any one person or place that can bring happiness. It takes work to be calm in the midst of turmoil. But releasing the need to control it—well, that’s a start.”
Sasha Martin, Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

“I don’t think the homesickness of a perpetual wanderer can ever be quenched.”
Sasha Martin, Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

“All you can be is you. Your true self shines with more beauty than your mind can ever know.”
Sasha Martin, Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

Topics Mentioning This Author

“My first encounter with a baguette, torn still warm from its paper sheathing, shattered and sighed on contact. The sound stopped me in my tracks, the way a crackling branch gives deer pause; that’s what good crust does. Once I began to chew, the flavor unfolded, deep with yeast and salt, the warm humidity of the tender crumb almost breathing against my lips.”
Sasha Martin, Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

“The easy truth is as much a lie as any.”
Sasha Martin, Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

“Most people who have had a rough background will admit there’s something unsettling about finding happiness after difficulty – that even after we unwrap this gift, we don’t know how to stop searching, rummaging, pilfering for something else. We walk haltingly through life, ready for the other shoe to drop. The question is not if, but when.”
Sasha Martin, Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

“Everything depends on the moment the spice hits the pan: whether it sizzles with mouthwatering fragrance or turns to ash. Once, I thought happiness was the sizzle in the pan. But it’s not. Happiness is the spice – that fragile speck, beholden to the heat, always and forever tempered by our environment.”
Sasha Martin, Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness

“Over the years, the kitchens I grew up in and around continued to draw me in, like a moth to a flame, as though I might recapture whatever innocence I’d lost in that warm, fragrant space.”
Sasha Martin, Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness
