"First, we eat. Then we do everything else."

I love many things, but there are only two that I would consider my true passions: the written word and food.

In my other blog, sent from my dell desktop, I devote myself to the former. Over the course of the past two years, I have attempted to use the written word to capture and express both the significant and significantly mundane moments in my life. Conspicuously absent from that blog, however, is the everpresent role food plays in my life--both cooking and eating. For reasons I don't yet understand, it seems that I have edited out that entire portion of my life.

I'm not sure why I did this. I think at some point those stories just didn't seem relevant to the overall theme or tone of the blog. Or perhaps it was that they just felt off topic. Make no mistake, their absence belies their importance.

Today I decided that these moments can no longer stay locked away in my journals and memory. So, instead of waiting for the appropriate time or venue to appear, I have gone ahead and created it. In here I plan to serve you overflowing portions of the culinary moments of my life--with recipes. And perhaps even photos (of the slightly out of focus variety).

Feel free to ask for seconds. And remember to save room for dessert...

  3. Just stumbled upon your blog. Love the recipes and love the writing style. I particularly enjoyed the post about the lettuce.

    We just moved to New York a few months ago and love to cook, but are still looking for the good places to buy our ingredients. Grocery shopping in the city has been quite the adventure! Look forward to reading more of your postings!
