Nice to Meet you

I have been blog stalking for about a year now. I stalk for running inspiration, cooking inspiration and basically any inspiration I can get. Finally after always taking pictures of my cooking as I cook, taking notes on food as I eat, watching and DVRing hours of Food Network, spending 100$’s on food magizines and doing various other strange habits in my everyday life, my loving supportive husband told me I should start my own blog.

It took me a really long time to think that I was a blog worthy lady and I’m still not sure I am.. But if anything,  at least I’ll have un-read documented parts of my life for me to go back and look at?! I just hope I can become half or even a quarter as good as some of you other bloggers! I have a feeling it’s going to take a while to catch onto but at least I have something to work towards!

Okay, So about me. I’m married to my best friend, I love to cook but am by no means a PRO. I LOVE to try new recipes, Change other’s recipes and make as much from scratch as possible. I try to live a healthy well-balanced life that does include running half marathons, eating chocolate and drinking wine… like A LOT of wine. and working a little. But still a very balanced life.  So here’s me sharing a bit with you. Hope you enjoy

    Aww! Your intro reminded me of how I felt when I started my blog, which at that point was to keep friends/family updated on a health situation now in the past. It is scary to put yourself out there! :)

    But it looks like you’ve already seen some of the fun side too – the prep, photos, writing, composing.. And community!

    Keep it up – I look forward to seeing more. :)

    Hi, no doubt you are doing just great out here in blog-land judging from your vibrant content which reflects a true zest for life. If you would like to visit one of the most incredibly warm buzzing community websites I have yet seen in the fake online world we move around in. just pop in to Wikinut,com. I am not doing some cheap touting here, that is why I have not offered a personal link. Love your page and will return,Andre’

  33. Morrice says:

    Thanks for the comment on my blog.
    It really really really met a lot to me.
    Blogging doesn’t have to be as difficult as you think.
    Be honest (yes sometimes honesty means you to take a stand), share ( which your delicious recipes are already doing that) provide fresh content and there you go.
    On a different note the bacon wrapped quiche look divine.
    Right now my favorite red wine of the month is Mirassou form California. A pinot noir with really lushes velvety blackberry-ish plum flavour.

  34. Audrey says:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love yours and I’ll be back to see what’s new! :)

  35. I love your refreshing honesty. I’m new to blogging (writing and reading) but it’s so much fun! Looking forward to sharing your adventures!
