A Beginning

It's time for a new venture, a new blog for sharing recipes and thoughts on food and cooking.

Q: So what makes you qualified to have a cooking blog?
A: I cook? That's enough, isn't it? I'm not half bad, or so I have been told.

Q: You've been cooking for a while now and you're just meeting your kitchen?
A: I have been cooking for a long time. I've even blogged about food before, but just like you can't go home again and you can't step into the same river twice, I meet my kitchen anew nearly every day.

Q: So why should anyone read your blog?
A: I plan to post at least twice per month. My posts will showcase recipes that I discover and use, cookbooks I am exploring, and foods my family and I enjoy. I will consider the challenges of having a picky eater in the family, and my interest in vegetarian and non-dairy cooking. Sometimes my other interests such as board games or exercise may get mentioned. If you have an idea for a post, feel free to let me know. Thanks for reading!


  1. looking forward to what you will be posting on this blog.

  2. If your kitchen is like a river, I'd suggest getting a plumber, ASAP :)

  3. I'll be reading -- looking forward to seeing what you have to say!

  4. By the way, we have a picky eater, are vegetarian, and dairy-free, too, so I can relate to the topics you mentioned.

  5. To be clear, we as a household are neither vegetarian nor dairy-free. I would like us to be dairy-free (and I am personally trying to be so, but it is often a battle). I like vegetarian/vegan cuisine, and I try to work in at least one vegetarian dinner per week. However, I also like a steak or some bacon once in a while.

  6. Looks good! BTW, just thought I'd mention that The Kitchn ( did a whole week on vegan recipes/cuisine/issues week before last, just in case you're not familiar w/ that blog. I've had good luck with a lot of their recipes in the past, and even though we're not vegetarian either, I'm definitely planning on trying some of these.
