so here’s the deal…. i pinterest. a lot. it’s actually a tad ridiculous. i mean i could sit there and pinterest for a living. saddest part… i’ve only been introduced this miracle (or evil?) in the last week or so. i know. it’s bad.
i say that because that obsession leads me here. to this. i never really had a desire to truly blog about anything in particular. i mean i livejournaled when that was cool. i thought about doing a blog when i was into sex and the city. but did i ever give it a wholehearted attempt and actually have a focus? no. not in my wildest dreams.
that’s where pinterest comes in…
see i love food. like seriously love food. i’ve been watching food network since i was in middle school. (and when i started watching it, i watched it in secret late at night like it was something devious, an addiction.) and i love everything about food. i’m borderline certifiable about it. i stammer and get all googly around chefs i obsess over (see Susan Spicer and John Besh). so friends introduced me to pinterest and said that i could discover all kinds of recipes. and boy did i. in the measely little week or so i’ve been “pinning” i’ve pinned a total of 287 times. and for the record i have 7 boards – DIY, home decor, fashion, vacation spots, food, undefined and party ideas. ok so logically, if i’ve pinned to all the boards equally i should i have 41 pins per board. but who pins equally? not me. oh no not me. i pin over half my pins to my food board… like 154 pins worth.
but the point of that joyous little story is that pinning the recipes brings me to all kinds of food blogs and i figure, if they can find time, i can to. i’m not looking to compete or even be half the blog that these people turn out… but i simply want to write and talk and dream about food. i figure, i can take pictures of my food when i try something new. i can share my recipes. that i can do. i can’t promise that i’ll post something every day (because i know i won’t). mainly because, i don’t always try something new every day. a lot of times, i stick to my tried and true. see i work full time. and a lot of evenings i just want to pass out on my couch. but i figure this will make me a little more inspired. if i think i have to share with everyone, maybe i won’t be lazy and i’ll attempt more of the recipes i pull out of the 4 (FOUR!) food magazines i subscribe to. so this is me… starting to do that.
and all the recipes are a complete variety… i feel i should clarify that. i like to cook AND bake. i like a meal from start to finish. from the cheese plate appetizer to the last bit of rum sauce on a piece of bread pudding. so you’ll find everything here.
enough of the long and the short of it. no recipe in this post… only a little fyi background… but i am making taffy apple cupcake pops tonight so look forward to that being the first recipe post… YAY!!
