I’ve made no secret of my passion for food. One of my hopes in sharing step-by-step recipes here on the blog is that you will try them and love them as much as we do. I primarily share original recipes because they come from my heart. I love to cook, and I want to share that love with you. It is in that sharing that my greatest hope is firmly rooted: the hope that my instructions or photographs might somehow encourage you to get in the kitchen, venture into uncharted territory and try something that you’ve never tried before. Or better yet, try something that you thought that you couldn’t do.
I hope that I can somehow encourage you to want to try to be a better cook.
My own quest to become Comfortably Domestic was not without many foibles in the kitchen. In fact, I still have them. Regularly. But for me, the breakthrough came when I started to understand the Why of cooking. Once I felt that I understood the Why, then I had the courage to Try. Try new things, try new methods, try to improve, try crazy-stuff-knowing-that-it’s-probably-going-to-fail-but-still-hope-that-it-doesn’t-anyway. Just try.
The majority of the email that I get from my sweet blog readers is food related, and often hinges on the How and Why of cooking. It is because of these questions that I’m going to try regular Food-Dork Friday segments that delve a little deeper in to cooking methods, ingredients, equipment, etc.
What does this mean to you?
Well, I hope that it means that you are just geeky enough to get into these dorky posts. At the very least, I hope that reading them doesn’t make your eyes roll back in your head with intense boredom. At the very, very least, perhaps a little tidbit that you read here will help you in food related categories shall you ever happen to appear on Jeopardy or Cash Cab.
Bottom line: I’m trying something new. I hope that you like it. I promise to try to be entertaining, but mostly I’ll probably just sound super-dorky. I hope that you love me anyway.
I welcome your feedback! Feel free to send me an email with your thoughts on Food-Dork Fridays or with topics that you would be interested in knowing more about. I have an extensive list of things I think are interesting, so your topic might just be on there!
