Carrie was hungry for something… something more than food. A new experience. A chance to poise the pen while she preheated the oven. She needed a way back into the world.
After “retiring” to become a stay-at-home mom to two young children, she found she had lost her way—and her ability to interact with adults. Poet in the pantry was born from this hunger, this need to be an adult again and use those brain cells for more than ABCs and “open wide.” It’s been a delicious journey ever since.
Two years later, instead of a toddler and a preschooler, she’s serving it up to two grade-school kids, who are always ready to eat. Back in the “real world,” her hungry co-workers provide plenty of opportunities for playing in the kitchen with their frequent in-office celebrations. And we can’t forget about her husband, whose belly has enjoyed more than its fair share of creations.
Join the journey! It’s not always easy, but it sure is tasty!
