Hello everyone, I’m Laureen, creator of Art and the Kitchen. Thanks for stopping by.
I live in sunny Alberta, Canada. The recipes I share are a collection of the meals I make for my family. I am always experimenting, so recipes range from good old homestyle cooking to trying my hand at gourmet meals.
My late Grandmother was the person who inspired me the most. She was a lady of simple means, lived on a farm, grew an enormous garden, baked the most delicious bread and grew the most beautiful flowers.
My favourite sport is track and field, and this is where I’ve spent my weekends for the past 11 years watching my son compete. He is now 22 and away from home at University. He encouraged me to start blogging, I think mostly so he would have an online recipe book and learn to cook for himself.
I have been married to a wonderful man for 25 years. We met working for CN Rail (funny isn’t it railroader to food blogger). Since I started blogging his question is always “do we eat now or do I wait until you take pictures.
I am also an artist, and have converted a bedroom into an art studio. I specialize in decorative painting, but dabble in all kinds of mediums. Another passion of mine is gardening and I have a exquisite collection of lilies growing in my garden.
Hope you enjoy my journey of sharing old and new recipes.
