Welcome to No Meat No Meal. Hi! My name is Mary and this is my blog. This blog is a chronicle of my life and the lives of those dearest to me. I’ll be sharing my favorite recipes, accounts of trips I’ve taken and some other odds and ends that come up along the way.
A little note on the name of the blog. No Meat No Meal is Josh’s philosophy on food. He shared this with my family and we all became enamored with his clever and funny thoughts on food. I’m sure some of his comments on food will pop up from time to time. I decided to name my blog No Meat No Meal because it is a funny inside joke so if you are expecting a food blog with tons of meaty meals you might be disappointed. In fact, I haven’t been eating much meat at all lately (don’t tell Josh!) There will be lots of recipes though. Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies and I have been searching for a great way to organize all of my recipes and to share family recipes.

Oh, and I almost forgot! An exorbitant number of pictures of Mary’s cat Pepper Potts. (Yes, as in Iron Man’s girlfriend. Josh was involved in naming her…)
