How do you get Inspired?

I never know what is going to inspire me…it might be a memory or something I see on television or in a magazine. It might be something someone suggests, or some food they are raving about that lights a fire under me. Sometimes it is even looking over a menu and trying to make something similar at home. Most of the time, I get motivated by little trips to the market, store or a visit to a new town. It is fun to see what they have to offer.

When we were in Seattle a few weeks ago, I was amazed at all the different pastas at the farmer’s market. I mean who ever heard of chocolate linguini!? (I didn’t buy that one…promise!) I did pick up a few pastas to pack away in our suitcase, but mostly what I saw inspired me to try a few new things here at home.

What inspires  you in the kitchen?

So many things to choose from...

  1. What inspires me? I am lucky enough to have a Wegmans nearby. I go often to shop and look around, and they are always bringing new things forward. They have great ideas and also put a magazine out for each season. It is filled with new ideas. So, that’s my inspiration along with Food Network.
