There is a saying out there and to sum it up simply, it goes like this, hope is just around the corner. Wise words if you ask me. It’s a saying that always proves itself time and time again.
Often I look back and think, how could I not have realized that when God closes a door, He opens a window? (As cliché as that may sound, it is oh so very true).
Sometimes, I feel like I keep getting that door slammed in my face and each time it hurts a bit more than the last. What I didn’t realize is that if the door never closed, we’d be stuck wandering around the halls, going from one room to another for eternity. The only way out is through that window.
Living the Gourmet is our window.
In the last six years, it has brought us more joy and opportunity than we ever imagined- and yes, it has brought us to you, dear friends and readers.
It challenges our creativity and encourages our passion for cooking and baking every day. I would even go so far to say that it has brought our family closer together. It’s an endeavor that I am so blessed to be a part of. Every thought shared; every recipe created is a labor of the purest love.
I watch my mother with profound admiration and pride at this beautiful site she has created (at the encouragement of my brother, I might add). Everyone plays an important role. It is truly a team effort. So you see, Living the Gourmet is where all our hearts combine.
Welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy your visit.
This sweet, moist summer cake is infused with fresh Rosemary and lemon. Speckled with floral notes that are perfectly balanced with hints of citrus.
