Sorry about the lack of warning. This was a unplanned hiatus. Seriously, I meant to blog while I was here at my moms' house, but I've faced the facts: it just isn't going to happen. The kitchen here is insane. No offense mom, if you're reading this, but it drives me a little crazy to cook here. My kitchen isn't much bigger, but it has all my stuff in it. What can I say, I'm picky. In addition, my mind has been occupied with other things, such as hanging out with the friends and family and reading every Haruki Murakami book ever written. I will blog again soon, I promise. I don't know if anyone has really missed my blog, but truthfully I have missed writing it. I'll be back to blogging in a week or so when I get back home.
I'm a college student in beautiful Santa Cruz. I first began cooking during my childhood in the boondocks of northern California. It started with "Darrel's Forget the Cookies-Just Give Me That Batter!" chocolate chip cookie recipe and it hasn't ended yet. I was inspired by the food blogs I read online and thought it would be fun to start my own. Note: I am not nor have I ever been a professional chef. I am not in culinary school. This is real food. I'm not going to make the fanciest things, but I am going to make things that taste good. I cook as a hobby. I cook for myself, and occasionally for my family and friends. So here I am, sharing my cooking experiences.
