About Me: About I am a SAHM who is almost, kind of, sort of a WAHM but mostly because I am blogging and learning social media and cooking (which I do anyway but now I write about it) and trying new places (Oh, the sacrifices I make for this blog) and reading (Oh, to be paid to read = dream job. I am someone who likes to read everything and have always been this way. If I could figure out a way to be paid for reading, I would). When I was thinking up blog names, I got stuck on Capability. I don’t know why it resonated with me – it just did – er, does. When I remembered that there is a person named Capability Brown, I still liked it.

    Are you a self-taught cook or did you secretly get a culinary degree? If so, when did you have the time?

     

    Thanks for the list of fave shops!
