Hello and welcome to Shack Life Quarterly, a food and travel resource for shack dwellers of all kinds.
This blog was inspired by my parents and by Heidi Swanson’s blog 101cookbooks.com. I wanted to be able to share the wonderful recipes from my childhood that my mom compiled from her ‘black book’ into a cookbook that she gave my brother and me for Christmas in 1996. I also wanted to further explore my dad’s idea of a food and travel diary that he called ‘Shack Life Quarterly’. I had started a website but struggled to find the format for the content. I wanted it easily editable, structured but not too restrictive, and able to be commented on by other people. When I discovered 101cookbooks.com earlier this year, I realized that a blog is the perfect format.
I’ll be using this blog to document my cooking, restaurant and travel experience. Enjoy!
