My New Year's resolution is to blog more consistently. It is sad to go through my blog reader and click through the list of blogs I like to find that somebody stopped blogging. I'm sure that in some cases it was for very good reasons. By that I mean, in the big picture of life, food blogging is not high on the list of priorities - at least for me. It's a hobby and frankly the actual cooking is more important than the blogging itself. I work full time. And, it does not take priority over my little family (my husband and my cat:-). All that said, I don't want to become one of those blogs that falls by the wayside. I am going to tackle 2011 with a renewed spirit for my foodie journey. After all, some things haven't changed. I do want to record my culinary journey. I'm simultaneously fascinated and confused by all the food philosophies out there. I have so many *recipes that I want to try, and I have so many kitchen gadgets that I would like to learn to use better. More importantly, I want to know exactly what I'm feeding my family by learning how to make real food from scratch, and eliminating convenient packaged foods with ingredients that I can't pronounce.
*This is a picture of the top two shelves of my kitchen bookcase. It doesn't include the the other five shelves, the stacks on each of my end tables and the one by my bedside. Did I mention that I read cookbooks and cooking magazines like some people read romance novels? Can anyone else out there relate?
