"Bonnie ... spent a year and a half looking at couches... Then one night we were on the way to the movies and she stopped in front of a furniture store window and said, 'Wait a minute,' and went in and bought this horribly expensive couch in about five minutes."And it's one of those quotes that I read and this clarity comes over me and I think to myself that's me.
This blog is the culmination of two and a half years of searching for that perfect couch, or perfect medium. I knew I wanted to write but didn't know where the best place to put my ramblings would be. I often found myself writing something and I would love the content but not the theme of what I was doing and scratch it. I wrote half a cookbook before deciding that wasn't right either so I went back to the blog idea and bought a domain. That I let expire because the timing was off. I considered the website Medium as the forum for me.
Today I was feeling nostalgic (and bored) and headed over to the pop-culture blog that I used to write with a fellow trainwreck. Those few minutes and the realization that the domain would only cost me $12 a year and I bought I'm not a baker.
I'm not a baker, a chef or a writer by trade, and my vocabulary is chock-full of pop-culture references. I've finally accepted that the timing will never be perfect. And I am well aware that the writing will never be either. But I am certainly willing to give this a try and I hope you'll jump over a cliff with me.
Like any home-cook, I've spent years in the kitchen and this blog will be a showcase of some of my favorite recipes alongside an explanation of why they're so dear to me.
Okay, what's next.
