The idea for Latkes and Ladles came about in the summer of 2014 before I went off to college. At the time, I was just starting to enjoy cooking more and wanted a place to save all the recipes I was trying from Pinterest, newspaper and magazine articles, and my mom’s random printouts and cookbooks. The goal was to create an online compilation of easy access cooking tips and recipe suggestions.
Once at school, I hoped to continue adding to the collection but in a college dorm, I couldn’t accomplish much more than random mixtures involving tuna, avocado, and quinoa or microwave mac & cheese (it really does work!). Now that I’m not in a dorm and have a kitchen to patchke in, I like experimenting with food my roommates don’t find interesting and cooking healthy, easy, and often.
