I was born and raised on the Coast of Maine, specifically the shore of Penobscot Bay. Circumstance finds me living in the Midwest. Formerly an attorney, I am now staying home full time to raise my daughters. Along with my husband, we live on the North Shore of Lake Michigan outside Chicago. I never thought the Midwest would become my home, but this Yankee – or Mainiac, as we are sometimes referred to in my home state – seems to be settling in.
The goal of Third Coast Yankee is to share my favorite recipes and cooking techniques with a wide audience. The principal focus is on fresh family friendly meals that are both economical and always made from scratch. In the true New England tradition, I believe that thrift in the kitchen saves both money and time. Many of these recipes are based on meals I grew up eating in Maine, while others have been adopted – and sometimes adapted – over time as I have become a more experienced cook.
Thanks for taking the time to follow my continuing adventures in the kitchen!
