The Sunday Glutton is all about moderation in the kitchen. It’s about feeding your body, family, and soul while embracing the occasional indulgence. To accomplish this, The Sunday Glutton shares easy, fresh, wholesome recipes for your normal, everyday life. But it also highlights those rare gluttonous delights that help each of us celebrate the balance in our lives.
The Glutton Herself
The short story is: I’m Alison and I started this blog because I’ve always loved bringing people joy through cooking.
The long story is: I’ve struggled to find an appropriate balance (in a lot of different areas) for many years. If it was time to celebrate, time to cry, time to think, time to work, then it was time to eat. I’ve dieted on and off since getting ready for Junior Prom, but I’ve never found a lifestyle I could commit to. Then, when talking about enjoying holiday foods, a wise lady once said to me, “I wouldn’t worry about the meal, I would worry about the next day and the next week. You’ll weigh what you do normally.” And that stuck. And I’ve lost over 100 pounds since that advice – indulgences and all.
But, I don’t do it alone. My husband is a huge support both as my sous chef, taste tester, and dish washer (I know, I’m lucky). He requested I start this blog so that he could eat the benefits. Occasionally, it’s his turn to don the apron, and that’s usually him calling the shots on the grill and the smoker:
And of course, there’s our two perfect fur-babies (Hudson and Juneau) who like to circle my feet and hope I drop something while cooking. Hudson enjoys sleeping in the closet and scaring me to death when I don’t realize he’s in there. And Juneau’s favorite hobby is licking bacon grease off the kitchen floor if it splatters while crisping.
