I am a fan of the great game of baseball (specifically, the Seattle Mariners) and I love cooking, writing, throwing parties, and spending time with friends and family. My husband and I often try to duplicate things we have in various restaurants, and are usually fairly successful; but like baseball, there are hits and misses. The title of this blog refers to that. Generally, we just enjoy the cathartic action of dismantling whole foods and turning them into something wonderful. I know cooks in high and low places, and enjoy both the preparation and consumption of food. This blog is dedicated to that part of my life.
