Jumping Right In
I’ve been kicking around the idea for this blog for a while now, and it’s finally come to fruition. You might be wondering who I am and why I’m doing this, and those would be reasonable questions.
I’m a budding foodie, and though I have no formal training of any kind, I’d consider myself an advanced sort of home cook. Cooking has become a hobby for me, one that my test-kitchen husband and roommate support wholeheartedly. I’m a cookbook junkie, can’t say no to a good gadget, and waste a lot of time looking at the Food Network.
As for the why…
I’ve gotten to the point in my culinary *cough* career that I’ve tried a lot of things, and accumulated a ton of recipes, most of which I’ve deviated from in one way or another. My plan is to use this space to not just review recipes, but keep track of the little tweaks that made this time around a delicious success.
I’ve also developed a reputation for being a cook in my own circle of family, friends, and colleagues, and there are those among my family, friends, and colleagues who actually want to know what I’m cooking. They’re welcome to tag along.
Finally, I like to write, and I never do enough of it. Anything that gets me writing regularly is a good thing.
So there it is. I plan to review recipes, cookbooks and the occasional restaurant. You might catch me sharing my thoughts on Top Chef or other food TV shows that I enjoy, and I’ll probably make recommendations from time to time on gadgets and tools that I enjoy using.
If any of that sounds interesting to you, stay tuned.
