It’s been a year since I started This Food Thing!!
I started this blog for a few reasons…
The first is because a friend urged me into it, knowing that I like to cook, and thinking others may be interested in the foods and recipes I use and create. I balked a bit, had a false start, and then began this blog in earnest a year ago. Thank you for pushing me into it.
The second reason: I wanted a repository for the recipes I use, and create. At some point, it is this collection of recipes and little anecdotes that I would like to give to my child – a memory of the foods he has grown up eating. I have memories of different foods from my own childhood that I wish I had recipes for, but moving away from family, and various other departures have not made that possible. I’ve always wished I had recipes from aunts, uncles (yes, my Uncle Jim liked to cook), my grand mothers, and great grand mothers, and friends of the family. Someday, when my son is older, I’ll create a cookbook, of sorts, just for him, using this blog as my memory, and guide.
I just want to say ‘Thank you’ to everyone who reads, visits, comments and tries the recipes. I hope you continue to find something here that sparks your interest, perhaps gives you new ideas, brings back a forgotten memory of your own, and makes your palate happy.
