So you're probably perplexed by the title, and you're probably skeptical about me and why you should waste your time on my meandering thoughts. Hopefully I can pique your interest with a little random musings direct to you from my cranium...free of charge. (I will further explain the title as it's not really time to divulge how I've come to be who I am present day.)
You see, the path of my culinary life has really been a product of boredom. About seven years ago, I discovered Food Network! Yes, I said Food Network. What a fabulous invention that taps in to the forever hungry, tasty-craving creatures we are! On a cold, dreary day, on a Saturday, (yes, I live in Texas and, yes, it's cold to us) dedicated to being "one" with the couch, I stumbled on this station via channel surfing. Prior to this eventful day, I was convinced that my calling was to redesign a room of mine and a neighbor's with a budget of $1,000 a la Trading Spaces hosted by Paige Davis. Since that never panned out (don't know why, although I never even tried to enter or send a submission), I concentrated on epicurean delights.
Although I probably had loads of laundry and dishes and kids' homework and blah, blah, blah to do, I sat there enthralled by the wonder of culinary delights. I saw attractive "chefs" working magic with everyday meats and veggies and sauces and one-pot wonders. Of course, I was a Better Homes & Gardens checkered cookbook afficionado and Hamburger Helper Hero and Rocking Taco Gourmet. But on this winter day borne of boredom, I decided to become a gourmet genius.
So how do you take on this daunting task of becoming a culinary wizard? Glad you asked. Obviously I am new to blogging and the whole concept of sharing my thoughts with the world. But I know two things: I like to talk (a lot), and I love to cook. Even if I encourage one single soul to be inspired by the things I've learned and have to offer, I've made some sort of impact on the world.
So, without further ado, here I am in all my humble glory. Over the course of this blog (which may be a week or five years, who knows), I hope I can brighten your day, even if only slightly, with my random passing thoughts and maybe, if we're all lucky, I can share some experience with you, even if that experience is glory through failure!
PS...My first insight into who I am....I LOVE BACON!!!!!
