I’m Angelique. In 2005, I became mrs. ptb. In 2011, I became a first time mom. Somewhere in the middle, I learned how to cook. That part, I am still working on. I decided to keep a blog as a diary of the recipes we liked and the tweaks I made to them. Then I added in the restaurants we go to, gadgets I use, and products I love. It’s called Not Just Take Out. Why? Because in the beginning, we ate a lot of take out.
When I became a mom, over time, I wanted to start sharing those experiences. I didn’t want it to take over the food site though. I have an audience there, and they aren’t all baby crazy. They like food. Sometimes the topics might overlap…but mostly they don’t.
I’m horrible at keeping a diary or journal. This is my best effort. These are my adventures as a new mom. Adventures in home ownership, wifedom, work, really anything in life that takes me out of the kitchen…because, now that I am a mom…really, how much of my life is not just babies, babies, babies?
More about me? I’m one of those cloth diapering, breastfeeding, baby clothes making moms. I don’t necessarily identify with Attachment Parenting, but the little man did spend some time in our bed his first couple months, and so far, we are not going with CIO. I started getting craftier after having Ben, and it has taken off into a little Etsy shop.
