Ah, the much anticipated inaugural blog post...much anticipated by me, anyhow. I've been excited to get started for months now on this page, and, well, here we go.
I have written for Suite101 and Examiner as a food writer. While I had great experiences on both sites, I look forward to doing this my way now, without pesky editors telling me how they prefer it done. I intend to share my love of cooking, baking, and food, in general, with anyone who is willing to read.
I am addicted to the ooohing and awwwing that comes with serving up something great to eat. That addiction started when I was a little girl and an eager assistant cook and baker to my mother, who as a mother of five children, stayed pretty busy. When I would serve anything, and I mean anything, to my father he would respond as if I had just served him sunshine on a plate. I have been hooked on making food and watching it recharge people's moods, and distributing a little guilty pleasure at times, ever since.
I am an avid home cook and it is safe to describe me as a wanna-be-chef. I have a huge recipe collection that I began putting together over 15 years ago and I am still adding to it. At times, I've wondered what I would ever do with all of those recipes...I'm fairly certain this blog is my solution.
