The next question is if I were to actually attempt a cooking blog (with random off-topic thoughts and posts sprinkled in) could I actually cook?
The answer...well maybe. Bradley is keeping his fingers crossed.
As Bradley and I were exiting Borders yesterday I noticed a clearance rack of cookbooks (insert heavenly melody here). Bradley says he would be willing to purchase yet another cookbook if I'd actually cook. Excited about the thrill of making a purchase I began to skim the cookbooks for anything mouthwatering. And that's where I saw it. THE ONE. The cookbook that may change my life as a newly-married struggling cook, "The Best 1001 Short, Easy Recipes."
I'm sorry to disappoint those who were actually hoping to learn something from this blog. I'm just trying to get dinner on the table! This is not going to be one of those fancy blogs where the writer is an actual chef and cookbook writer. This won't be a blog of an "expert" giving advice to the novice (one of the suggestions in Blogging for Dummies is to blog about your expertise). I'm not cooking my way through Julia Child's cookbook (you can watch the movie "Julie and Julia" for that story). I'm simply attempting to make something edible. I will take the advice of Blogging for Dummies and insert a lot of pictures. Evidently, pictures is what will keep the reader reading.
So I purchased The Best 1001 Short, Easy Recipes cookbook for $7.99. A small price to pay to change my cooking life.
