Hi there! I'm Christine, a former hardware engineer turned stay-at-home mom living in beautiful North Carolina. Welcome to My Epicurean Adventures, a little blog about my  adventures in trying to raise a happy, healthy family and having as much fun as possible along the way. And ok, I kinda lied. I'm not a true foodie like the word "epicurean" implies. I'm not very fancy, though sometimes I try... a little. I'll consume (and like) just about anything. Basically, I just love to eat and cook here and there, too.

I started this blog when my younger daughter started kindergarten. By that time, I was packing lunches for two: one picky (Big Sis), one eat-anything (Little Sis) and both allergic to peanuts or tree nuts. This blog has been a fun and creative outlet for me to share with you the simple and sometimes interesting lunches I pack for them. Now that my girls are older, life has gotten much busier and more hectic with all of our after school sporty and musical endeavors. In an effort to not let convenience compromise eating healthy-ish home-cooked meals, I've learned to cook more simply and efficiently without sacrificing taste and wholesome foods, as much as possible. Trying to make food a little bit healthier by sneaking this in and taking that out has become kind of a fun game. More and more, I've been using this blog as a way to keep track of my family's favorite recipes, some of which are just links to tried and true recipes we love and some that I've created or added my own touch to.

With all the running around and watching my girls play sports, I've definitely let my blog gather dust, but it's time to do some spring cleaning. I plan to clear out some old posts, update the good ones, tidy up the overall look of it and mostly provide easier access to the good stuff.

Hope you'll like it!

Eat, drink, be merry, cook, organize, blog, travel, volleyball and last but mostly, have fun with my family. That's what I love to do.
