I welcome you to my blog, d’Eats. I am a home cook, with a long history of family dinners, quick dishes, old standards and new experiments from a lifetime of kitchens. The Deetz family has professional chefs, bakers, and restaurateurs. I am none of those, but we Deetzes also spent our lives with people who love food, love cooking and enjoy the sense of family that food brings to any gathering. It is in that spirit I share my recipes and some extended family recipes, with all of you.

Three generations of Deetzes in view, as well as many friends, family and should-be-family members . . . no one does fictive kinship like the Deetzes! From the plate count and my knowledge of that space, we are only seeing about 1/3 of the people slated to eat. My mother's basic rule on food was abundance is never enough. It would make my Dad crazy, but we are a family who knows how to relish good leftovers, make something out of nothing and stretch basic ingredients into something spectacular. Many of the recipes I will share embrace the same creed, and will be things from my parents' families, friends of our family, and the many things my siblings have perfected themselves through the years. I look forward to posting them all here so that we can keep the love we had for food and family (no parsing out friends here) going.
