Well Worn Apron Food

Welcome to the Well Worn Apron Food Blog!

 

If my apron could tell tales, it would fill your ears of tales of meals cooked for friends and family in a few kitchens over the years. It was a gift from my Dutch sister-in-law almost two decades ago. The many stains on it are there to stay at this point. I like to say it gives the well worn apron character instead of being a dirty old thing. It is most cherished by me. And everyone around me as when the well worn apron comes off the pantry door, it means that some good food is coming their way. The well worn apron has even made it into my backpack to travel to cook for others, so for an apron it is well traveled.

Join me as I cook, eat, travel, and share on Well Worn Apron Food Blog since 2011!

Cheers! And let’s eat!
