It’s been a long 10 months… and that is noooo Joke! I haven’t touched this website since January and, since then, so many changes have happened. The last video I did was last Christmas with my son - and within weeks my life completely blew up!
Without boring anyone with a horrible, and horribly long story, I just want to say… I’m BAAAACK.
I don’t know how often I will post… it may be a gradual come back… but I am determined to get more Cookbyists on this website than just the ones looking for Pho’ Soup directions… It’s a problem only a blogger could understand… No worries.
Also, there will be more dinner parties, and videos of those. I have had many in these last few months and almost forgot how much I love them. I have never shared them and I want to include more of that in my life, and in my work here. I want people to understand the value of friends combined with food. I want to share more of why I cook. Food brings people together, creating events and memories, and I want you to feel comfortable and confident in giving a dinner party for 2 or 22. Life revolves around food; thank god food does not revolve around my life.
I want to share the people I share my food with… The people who share my love of food… and the people that inspire me to cook a great meal.
I want to teach someone to cook, and I found the guy… a man who, until last night, had never hard boiled an egg on his own. A daunting task, I know… but everyone needs a daunting task in their life.
I am single after 9+ years, part of the reason for the 9 month hiatus, and I want you to know how cooking has given me peace of mind, and strength, and continuity. It has brought me joy, and laughter, and new friends.
I want to share the social aspect of cooking, rather than just show you the recipes. I want you to laugh while you learn… and I don’t care if it’s with me or at me.
I am not a chef. I cook for a hobby and sometimes feel like an artist. I am a cookbyist in the truest sense of a non-word, and want to share that world with you.
I am making spare ribs tonight and downloading a video showing my friend how to Dr. It Up! an egg salad sandwhich. I haven’t seen the video. You may get both, or you may only get the recipe. Either way… the sandwich was delightful.
Talk to you Sooner than later!
