basket of vegetables

What? Another Blog?

Lately, I've been playing around with food more than usual. I've been photographing it, cooking it, and just generally enjoying it. For my last birthday, my daughters gave me a gas grill, which I've been experimenting with. I can see a lot more playing with food in my future.

I have always loved food. My birth family enjoyed a huge variety of foods, I realize in retrospect. I was exposed to numerous ethnic foods (Chinese, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Russian, Polish, Italian, French) as a youngster and have broadened my tastes ever since. There is no category of food that I dislike or avoid, although I certainly have favorites.  For years, I wrote for a food magazine, often researching a single subject or food-related topic. I also reviewed restaurants for another publication.

So my decision to write about food will probably not surprise most of my friends. I don't yet have a clear plan for this blog. I will probably include a certain number of recipes, some anecdotes, and maybe even a few cooking techniques. I will definitely include pictures, most of which can be found on my flickr page. As for the rest, well—time will tell. 


  1. Yummy, yummy looking. How about "cooking with friends" and then telling about that social/eating experience? Food and friends At-Hand!

  2. Recipe, photos, food chat...... all good!

  3. Ooh, you've got a food blog! I love food blogs - just added you to my RSS reader.

    Lovely veggie photo...
