Family Supper Club

I roped several of my friends and family members into writing a team blog about cooking.  Go see Family Supper Club for inspiration and ideas.  From the intro:
Come see what real families are eating. Meal plans, recipes, successes and failures, takeout confessions, cookbook and equipment reviews, and whatever else we think of. All from real people cooking for real families, with schedules and budgets and priorities. Some are finicky; some are gourmet. Some are green, some like fast food, some stick with meat and potatoes. Some are Julia Child, and others are Sara Lee. This is what we eat.
I'm excited to be working with such fun and intriguing people.  You know how sometimes you just feel so proud of your friends and honored to know them?  That's how I feel this week.  I think they're just going to knock it out of the park.  We all have different perspectives, priorities, and experiences, and that's what makes it interesting.

All of the authors are united by an interest in good food but we all differ in the details of what that means.  Some are vegetarian, some quick & easy, some meat & potatoes.  Some just learning, others more adventurous and/or experienced.  Smoker specialists and cafeteria connoisseurs.  Some farmers, some city girls. Some working mamas, some homeschool mamas, and one single guy (see, Pete?  I've already committed you, so you have to do it).  Hopefully grandmas and college students, if I can talk them into it.  Different budgets, different kitchens, different family sizes.  This way we can learn from each other.

So go check it out.  We're having fun over there.
