I've been trying to explain to myself....Why a blog? What could I have to write about of any interest or importance? I am a wife, mother of 2 boys under the age of 4, and I work full time in the apparel industry (I deliberately chose not to say fashion industry). My life is very hectic with very little time for myself to do the things I love. Those things are mainly enjoying cookbooks, trying new recipes for my friends and family to enjoy, gardening, watching movies, flipping through fashion magazines, drawing, playing the piano, travelling, and so much more (most of which I can't remember the last time I had time to do)!
I am making a huge effort to start doing the things I love again. Motherhood has to allow for it, doesn't it? Regardless of the real answer to that, I am going to try. Starting this blog in some ways is helping me do that. It will be my little diary where I can document some of the craziness going on in a house of endless laundry, potty training, teething, daycare issues and of course....food!
As for the name of this blog, my husband suggested it because I am often asking (more like begging) him to somehow find me 5 minutes peace from all the day to day chaos! I happen to find peaceful, calming moments alone in the kitchen, so '5 minutes peace....in the kitchen' it is!
