I have decided to finally get around to adding a blog to my website and challenging myself to make a determined effort to post a new recipe daily for the next 365 days. Hence the title of this blog if it wasn’t already bleedin’ obvious. The recipe rework may include changes in ingredients or even slight variations on the preparations or in some cases absolutely no change at all. The overall idea is to list good recipes and for me to spread the LOVE of food virally, if you’ll pardon the pun. Of course it just wouldn’t be me if I didn’t insert my geekified historical references, sardonic wit and my lame attempts at humour, so don’t take everything you read here with a grain of salt so to speak. Footnotes are my thoughts while comprising the recipe here and are tongue in cheek to say the least. Also, this will not be a blog that will touch on dieting. This will be a blog that will focus on the LOVE of food and recipes – some healthy, some not…SO, common sense should be your guide! I have also decided that this is the best time of the year to start writing about food; we have recently celebrated the harvest here with Canadian Thanksgiving, Halloween is over (in my books October 31st does not constitute a culinary cornucopia unless you live for potato chips, sticky cupcakes and chocolate bars), American Thanksgiving is around the corner and Christmas is looming on the horizon. The perfect time to think of stuffing ourselves with REAL tasty treats, delectable dishes and all round good comfort food over the cold, dark winter months that we here in the Northern Hemisphere have to endure.
So in my effort to spread the LOVE…join me daily and partake in the joys of getting fat together. The recipes will not always be simple but I will try to keep them somewhat healthy (we can pretend Chicken Fried Steak is healthy…right?). I can guarantee however, they will be satisfying and perhaps even decadent. The idea is to draw inspiration from favorite recipes and understand that we can learn to enjoy food in a whole new light it doesn’t have to be just good or bad. I am hoping to promote the idea of that taking control of your food habits and changing them can be for the better. It’s OK to LOVE food (even bad food sometimes); we only need to learn to choose wisely and food can be a wonderful way to add pleasure to our daily lives.
Please join me tomorrow for my inaugural recipe!
