Take Off!

Hello Fellow Foodies!

Okay, I've tried to start a blog several times now and every time I decide I don't like it, get cold feet, and delete the entire thing. So bear with me. Basically I need a place to write some things down whether they be recipes, exceptional food experiences, recommendations for lovely cookbooks, or what have you. This will be a collection of all of that and more.

I've been writing ever since I was a child and eating ever since I was, well since I was born, obviously. Recently I seem to have fallen out of my writing habit and I realized that I really miss it. So this will be my outlet. Also, I constantly find myself daunted by the prospect of cooking. Don't get me wrong. I love to cook. My problem is that I'm not particularly confident in that area. I can bake. Oh yes I can bake. But I can't very well live off of cupcakes and cookies for the rest of my life. So I'm hoping that that this blog will also serve as a motivator for trying some more challenging recipes. It is, of course, entirely possible that no one will ever read this. But I will write as though someone is nonetheless.

I love to write. I love to eat. It has taken a four year BA in English and one year into a Baking and Pastry Arts program for me to discover that I should combine the two. So here it goes. The start of a beautiful romance between food and words. We'll have to throw in some travel occasionally to spice things up. Time for take off! Wish me luck.
