Welcome to Palatable Pastime!
Palatable Pastime is a food and cooking blog written by Sue Lau and focusing on Heartland and Southern cooking, with a splash of ethnic and international recipes.
Written with the home cooking enthusiast in mind, who wants to experience cooking as a pleasant way to enjoy themselves, rather than being a chore. We all have to eat, so why not enjoy it?
Palatable Pastime was founded in May 2013 as a place for those who enjoy good meals cooked by real people to go and easily find recipes and ideas for cooking that they enjoy.
