So, I started a food blog (at 3 in the morning)…now what? For years friends, family, even strangers have told me I should be in food- and when I say, “in food”; most suggest a restaurant, or catering, or just plain cooking for them on a pretty regular basis. I tried the catering and cooking-party shtick for a bit, let me tell you it was a lot of work, nights/weekends. I considered a food truck but our city isn’t the most progressive in regards to them and again you have nights/weekends. With two little kiddos at home, I didn’t want to be away that much. I even tried out for a couple pretty popular cooking competition reality television shows (say that three times fast). I had a good audition, they loved my dishes, I got to meet some famous chefs I admire, and I made it through three rounds of one of the shows, but apparently I don’t have enough drama for Prime Time. I’m a graphic designer and mom by day and now a budding food blogger at night- good thing I barely sleep. But, now I get the best of both worlds- sharing my food with everyone and being home, plus I get to feed my hungry creative side with the photography and writing.
I love food, no- I really love food, I love cooking it, I love eating it, and I love sharing it the most! If I had a different friend or neighbor at my dinner table every night to feed- I would be in heaven. BUT, I can get bored with food too. My hope is, this blog keeps me on my toes, keeps me creative- and with broadcasting my intentions here, now you all can take me to task.
I am not sure I have a well-defined food perspective- except to repeat, “I love food”. I do not discriminate, I cook Thai, Italian, French, Indian, Spanish, American, Vegetarian, BBQ, in fact, I haven’t met a cuisine I haven’t tried to tackle. I promise my recipes will be diverse, packed with flavor and delicious.
I hope you enjoy following me. I will also be setting up Instagram and Pinterest accounts that parallel this blog, so feel free to follow me there as well!
And please always remember: eating is necessary, but cooking is an art.
