I suppose some resolutions are better late than never. And so it is with this entry. Hopefully, I can keep things a little interesting. This is not self-indulgence on my part. Having been reading and watching what you all have been doing on this terrific
site, I've decided to hop on the AR wagon. I'll try to be a productive contributor. In equal amounts I'm hoping to learn a lot, as well!
Quite often I'm asked if I prefer to bake or cook. Undeniably, I like to do both. I look at "cooking" to be all inclusive. If I'm going to have a dinner party, I'll be making the drinks, the appetizer, and cooking the main course. And what kind of hostess
would I be without a homemade dessert to present afterwards? Even if everyone is stuffed, I've made the effort and they can take theirs home in a Gladware container. So I've cooked AND baked.
It is said that life is about the journey, not the destination. Through all of the overcooked roasts, the dry turkeys, the sunken cakes and fallen souffles, there is one thing that can be said. I've enjoyed every trial and error. I've also enjoyed the
successes and rewards. I give much credit to my family and friends who have weathered the outcomes. We all have to start somewhere. I used to stress out at the mere thought of having guests for dinner. Now it's a pleasure.
So with that said, I look forward to getting to know all of you, and will be asking a lot of questions. You'll get my two cent reviews as well. For now, I would like to invite you to my recipe box and check out three of my personal recipes I recently
posted and let me know what you think.
Thanks for allowing me in to your world.
