Already slacking

Well, here it is, my first post ever, and I don't have a picture for you. The disaster that inspired me to finally begin a blog went into the trash yesterday evening, thanks to the always-helpful Dan. If it were left up to me, the pizza that rose over the rim of my baking sheet, spilling cheese all over of the bottom of my oven would still be in there. When things turn out fine, I have no problem with my follow-through, but when it's a disaster I tend to use a lot of avoidance. Like the time the hot key lime pie spilled all over the oven when the pie plate broke, and it took me about 6 months to clean the oven.

I do love to cook, and usually everything turns out fine. I participated in my first CSA farmshare this past summer, and it was truly one of the best culinary experiences of my life. If you have a chance to do this where you live, I can't recommend it enough. I went to the farm once a week to select the freshest organic produce I've ever seen. The cost savings was incredible, and being able to meet the farmer and support his craft was incredibly gratifying. And we ate vegetables that we had never tried before, so it was very satisfying to me as a cook.

I plan to post some recipes here, with pictures, I promise. I'll be back after I get some new batteries for the camera. Come back and let's hang out and cook!
